Four nights of performances, including TV debut of "Bad Habits."

James Corden announced on Tuesday night (June 22) that Ed Sheeran will appear on The Late Late Show all next week, appearing in sketches and performing the TV debut of his upcoming single, "Bad Habits."

"All next week, the one, the only Ed Sheeran is going to be on the show every night next week!" Corden announced enthusiastically. "A full week of Ed. We're going to do comedy, we're going to chat, he's going to play... Ed Sheeran's going to be our musical guest every night of the week, plus, right here on The Late Late Show he's going to do the television debut of his brilliant new single 'Bad Habits.' Right here, what about that?"

Sheeran has been busy promoting Friday's (June 25) debut of the first single from his as-yet-untitled fifth studio album, including dropping teaser clips for the vampire-themed "Bad Habits" video. He continued the slow leak peek at the glossy visual on Tuesday with a clip that he said was from the first shot of the video in which he's wearing the visual's signature pink suit, accented by vampire fangs, glittery bruise eyeshadow and a shock of blonde hair.

He also posted an acoustic snippet of the song, debuting more lyrics from the tune that appears to chronicle his regrets about poor choices made late at night, singing, "My bad habits lead to late nights, endin' alone Conversations with a stranger I barely know/ Swearin' this will be the last but it probably won't/ I got nothin' left to lose, or use, or do/ My bad habits lead to wide eyes starin' at space/ And I know I'll lose control of the things that I say/ I was lookin' for a way out, now I can't escape/ Nothin' happens after two, it's true, it's true, my bad habits lead to you."
