In what might be one of the more head scratching collaborations in hip-hop since Bone Thugs and Phil Collins, Game is reportedly working with UK singer Ed Sheeran. In a recent talk with MTV he said they are working on a joint album that’s looking at either late 2014 or early 2015 release.

Game explained that the duo connected through social media. “He tweeted something about Jesus Piece,” he said “I responded, we exchanged numbers on the DM, and then we got in the studio. We were just planning to record one song; we ended up doing like seven.”

News of the project first broke in January at The Grammys when Sheeran spoke about his upcoming collaborations.

“I’ve ended up on songs with some interesting people,” Sheeran said “There’s one I can’t really name just ’cause I think it’d be quite a surprise when it comes out but I did around 11 records with The Game, which is quite interesting,”

According to Game the unusual pairing came from his partner.

“Ed came up with the idea to start working on a joint album, and we started doing it,” Game explained. “That was like in five hours. We was just going. He was on that guitar. Acoustically, he’s a genius, man, so when he does that, what comes out of me is songs like ‘Dreams’ and ‘Hate It or Love It’ and ‘My Life.’ The songs that we got, they’re real songs. And I can’t wait for people to hear ‘em.”
