Ed Sheeran & Scott released their music video for “Antisocial,” one of the themes of Sheeran’s new album, No.6 Collaborations Project.
The clip, which shows Sheeran disguised as a ship captain and office worker, among other roles, features references to films that include Pulp Fiction and Edward Scissorhands.
“Thanks to all the amazing artists I’ve worked with on this record for sharing your talent with me,” Sheeran wrote on Instagram last month.

The playful video, directed by legendary music video auteur Dave Meyers, features Sheeran and Scott playing a variety of bizarre characters in a host of disparate settings. There are some apparent references to famous films such as The Birds, Edward Scissorhands, and Pulp Fiction. If you’ve ever wanted to see Ed Sheeran in Day of the Dead makeup, now is your chance.

But one of the most oddly dynamic pairings is Sheeran, a mild-mannered pop savant who occasionally raps, with Travis Scott, a fireball of punky energy and stage-diving chaos. The pair get together on the bumping “Antisocial,” and in the video, which dropped Friday (July 12), they might as well be Tim Burton characters.

 

[Intro: Grandmaster Flash]
All you cool people better leave now
‘Cause it’s about to happen

[Verse 1: Ed Sheeran & Travis Scott]
Friday night and I’m ridin’ solo (Yeah)
When I touch down, keep it on the low-low (It’s lit!)
I don’t mess with your energy (Nah), no photos (Ayy)
So antisocial, but I don’t care (Ayy)
Don’t give a damn, I’m gonna smoke here (Ayy, pop it)
Got a bottle in my hand, bring more though (Ayy, pop it, pop it)
Got my hat low, don’t talk to me (Straight up!)

[Pre-Chorus: Ed Sheeran & Travis Scott]
I’ve been down, give me some space
You don’t know what’s in my brain
Music loud, easin’ my pain
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

[Chorus: Ed Sheeran]
Don’t touch me, don’t touch me
Don’t touch me, I came to vibe, yeah
On something, on something
On something, I wanna riot
Don’t touch me, don’t touch me
Don’t touch me, I came to vibe, yeah
Won’t let nothing come in between me and the night (Straight up)
Don’t touch me, don’t touch me
Don’t touch me, I came to vibe, yeah
On something, on something
On something, I wanna riot
Don’t touch me, don’t touch me
Don’t touch me, I came to vibe, yeah
Won’t let nothing come in between me and the night, yeah

[Verse 2: Travis Scott & Ed Sheeran]
I need room, I need room
Where you standin’ way too close
You might catch fumes, might catch fumes
When I zoom (Pew), when I zoom
Pass out, wake up by myself right past noon
Right past noon, then I’m doomed
Occupied and movin’ solo (Ooh, yeah)
Hennessy’s drownin’ all of my issues (Drown)
Right before I leave, she give me more than just a “miss you” (Yeah)
That thing got more back, just like my engine, I can hit it
(In the back) Seen a vision in the boy, then we committed (It’s lit!)

[Pre-Chorus: Travis Scott]
I’ve been lost out inner space
You left me right in my place
I put you down on my name
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

[Chorus: Ed Sheeran & Travis Scott]
Don’t touch me, don’t touch me
Don’t touch me, I came to vibe, yeah
On something, on something
On something, I wanna riot
Don’t touch me, don’t touch me
Don’t touch me, I came to vibe, yeah
Won’t let nothing come in between me and the night (Straight up)
Don’t touch me, don’t touch me
Don’t touch me, I came to vibe, yeah
On something, on something
On something, I wanna riot
Don’t touch me, don’t touch me
Don’t touch me, I came to vibe, yeah
Won’t let nothing come in between me and the night

[Outro: Travis Scott]
Don’t touch me, yeah
