Ed Sheeran is playing dress-up to promote his upcoming single, "Shivers." The second listen to Sheeran's upcoming fourth solo album, =, is due out this Friday (Sept. 10) and as the singer noted in a picture posted on Wednesday morning (Sept. 8), he definitely "glammed up" for the occasion.
Channeling his old pal Elton John, Ed rocked things out with a retro-70s Elton get-up featuring a feather headdress, blinged out rose-colored square shades, a silver lame jacket with fringe, a shiny shirt and black and silver skintight leggings to go with his equally sparkly slip-ons.
He was a bit more sober in a second pic, in which he sheepishly sits on a yellow couch in a green suit and black tie with a pandemonium of parrots perched behind him. In a worried caption he wrote, "The moment you realise your last single has been number one for 10 weeks and there’s now a lot of pressure on the next one not to flop. 'Shivers' out friday, presave it, I rented a parrot for the video, don’t let that be a waste." Sheeran's = album is due out on Oct. 29
