Ed Sheeran and Game may be busy with new records of their own, but that doesn't mean they don't have time to hang out—especially if it's in the studio creating their first collaborative effort.

Sheeran and Game have been hinting at a joint project for awhile now, posting snaps of them hanging out in the studio and dropping hints about the nature of the collaboration, which is due out in 2015. 

Now, Game is dishing a bit more on what we can expect from himself and the ginger songsmith: It'll be a double album, and both Sheeran and Game are going to challenge each other by heading up the other's songs. 

“Ed came up with the idea to start working on a joint album, and we started doing it,” Game tells MTV News. “We was just going. He was on that guitar. Acoustically, he’s a genius, man, so when he does that, what comes out of me is songs like ‘Dreams’ and ‘Hate It or Love It’ and ‘My Life.’ The songs that we got, they’re real songs. And I can’t wait for people to hear ‘em.” 

They've got around 10 new tracks in the works already (Game said 7, Sheeran said 11—we'll just say there's a few, and they're probably great). Game describes the end-goal of their collaborative project: "It’ll be the way I would do an album, with his help, and the way he would do an album with my features.”

In the meantime, Sheeran's gearing up for the release of X on June 23. Game is putting out Blood Moon, a Blood Money comp, later this year, with its single hopefully dropping this month.
