Ed Sheeran and Elton John have collaborated on a new Christmas single.
Sheeran told Dutch radio station NPO Radio 2 that his pal Sir Elton proposed teaming up last year after getting some good news about his 1973 track “Step Into Christmas.”
Ed recalled (quote) “Elton rang me on Christmas Day to say Merry Christmas. Elton rings me almost every single day. He said, ‘Step Into Christmas’ is number-six in the charts! I want to do another Christmas song -- will you do it with me?’”
Sheeran admitted that he initially "didn’t feel like the song suited me," but he quickly changed his mind. "You don’t know if you’ll still be there tomorrow, everything can change overnight. I may not be here tomorrow. Why shouldn’t I grab this opportunity?"
Sheeran didn't reveal what the title was for the new song. And the track wasn't announced as appearing on Elton's Lockdown Sessions compilation, which is due out October 22nd.
