After he appeared in the long-awaited Game of Thrones premiere — dividing hardcore fans — Ed Sheeran is ready to feature in another cult TV show — The Simpsons

The singer-turned-actor confirmed on Instagram he will voice a character named Brandon in a musical-themed episode of the animated Fox comedy titled "Haw-Haw Land" — a clear jibe at La La Land. 

In the show, which returns for its 29th season on Oct. 1, Sheeran will be involved in a love triangle with Lisa Simpson and Nelson Muntz. 

"This year continues to be equally surreal and amazing," the British singer said. "Watch out for this one, me and Lisa have a whole thing going on x."

The show's executive producer Al Jean told Entertainment Weekly the musician is a Simpsons fan who even has a tattoo of Blinky, the three-eyed fish, so naturally he was interested in appearing in the comedy. 

"We had a perfect part for him,” Jean explained. “So we said, ‘Oh, great, we’ll have him do this!’ And we recorded him over the phone from England."

Meanwhile, Sheeran has deleted his Twitter account after getting dragged for what many saw as a silly, unnecessary cameo in the fantasy thriller Sunday night.
