After previously revealing his pal Sir Elton John criticises his fashion sense, it seems Ed Sheeran has found an outfit the Rocket Man would approve of — because it's one of his signature looks.

Playing dress-up to promote his upcoming single, 'Shivers,' the 30-year-old channeled mid-’70s Elton complete with oversized pink crystal-studded glasses, sequined tights and a feather headdress.

The British singer-songwriter took to Instagram to share a photo of his over-the-top look.

"My brand new single Shivers is out Friday," he captioned the picture. "I glammed up for the occasion."

The two musicians have been friends for years - with Sheeran signed to Elton's management company, Rocket.

In 2017, Elton told Rolling Stone that the young musician reminded him of himself in the early stages of his career.

"He's always doing something, whether he's writing his own stuff or he's writing with other people. And that's how I remember myself being in 1970 when I first came to America.

"It was just all systems go. Nothing was impossible."

'Shivers' is set to be released tomorrow.
