Ed Sheeran, a huge Pokemon fan, combines his love of music and pocket monsters into an all new song.
The Grammy winner has been teasing ‘Celestial’ for some time – but always with his huge collection of Pokemon plush toys in full view. Now fans know why.
The Pokémon team has turned the “Celestial” music video into a spectacular animated spectacle. During the partnership announcement, Ed emotionally explained how he fell in love with the franchise at age 7, received a Gameboy color and the game pokemon yellow for his 8th birthday and has been “obsessed” with Pokémon ever since.
“Flash forward for me at 31, I still have the same game boy color and still play Pokémon Silver on long haul flights. I absolutely love it,” he wrote on Instagram. “As a kid it gave me a good escape into a fantasy world that seemed to go on forever, and in adult life it gave me a great escape. is the nostalgia that makes me feel like a child again.”
Ed has since met the people who created such an important part of his childhood and “joked that I was writing a song for them”. That song, “Celestial,” comes out next Thursday.
“The video is incredibly amazing, brought to life by the amazing people at Pokémon. I love it, you’re gonna love it,” Ed said, signing with the timeless phrase, “And we all gotta catch ’em all.
His favorite Pokémon character is Squirtle, so there’s a good chance they’ll appear together in the next music video.
Ed has already teamed up with Pokémon for an exclusive concert on Pokémon GO mobile app. The game also played its hit “Overpass Graffiti” during nighttime play.
