Ed Sheeran is having a VERY busy month so far - and today is particularly hectic for fans of the 'I Don't Care' singer. Ed has not only released his brand new album today (12th July), 'No.6 Collaborations Project', but he's also dropped a music video for one of the songs on the album - 'Antisocial', featuring Travis Scott.

The track itself is something a bit different for Ed, who has explored many different genres on the new album including heavy rock on 'BLOW' featuring country rock artist Chris Stapleton and Bruno Mars, as it has more of a hip hop vibe than we've heard from him before.

After dropping various hints about what the video might entail throughout the week, including one post where Ed called it 'bonkers', it's now been released - and it's safe to say that he wasn't wrong!

Warning: The following video contains explicit language some may find offensive.

The video features Ed and Travis in various peculiar scenarios, beginning with Ed as a skeleton in traditional Mexican 'Day of the Dead' face paint in front of an Ofrenda. He then switches to having a huge crimped hairdo and a small dog at an event, before a pretty creepy moment with a wasp landing on his eye...

The video also stars a workplace robot, Ed and Travis as sea captains and Travis seemingly taking on Matt Damon's role in 2015 film The Martian before becoming a terrifying dentist. Ed then channels the 2000 film Snatch, before the pair finish the video off eating chips in a diner.

We don't quite know what to make of it!
