Get a sneak peek at Celestial
Just a few weeks back, singer/songwriter Ed Sheeran popped up in a Pokémon promo video for the 2022 Pokémon World Championships. Since then, we’ve learned that the two are teaming up for a special music track called Celestial, which is set to make its debut on Sept. 29th, 2022. Mere hours before the track goes live, Pokemon Co. has shared a teaser video, which you can see above.
This isn’t the first time Pokémon Co. and Sheeran have teamed up, as the two previously paired for a special concert in Pokémon GO last year. Sheeran also shared a message about this upcoming collab on his Instagram, which you can read below.
I started off with Pokémon cards when the craze hit primary school when I was about 7, then the tv show was on tv so I used to try and record it over the same VHS every week. After this me and my brother shared a game boy and Pokémon blue. I got a game boy colour with Pokémon yellow for my 8th birthday, obsessed was an understatement. Flash forward to me at 31 I still have the same game boy colour and still I play Pokémon silver on long haul flights. I really really love it. It gave me a proper escape as a kid into a fantasy world that seemed to go on and on, and in adult life it’s nostalgia that makes me feel like a kid again.
I met the people from Pokémon when I was travelling in Japan, and we joked about me writing a song for them. But now here we are. Celestial comes out next Thursday, and the video is insanely amazing, animated by the incredible people at Pokémon. I love it, you’re gonna love it. And we all gotta catch ‘em all.
