Ed Sheeran has revealed that a new Christmas song, for which he is teaming up with Elton John, will arrive in December.
Sheeran called the track “f**ing great” in a recent interview with Dutch radio station NPO Radio 2.
“Elton rung me on Christmas Day to say Merry Christmas,” Sheeran said, adding that the talks to the star “almost every single day.”
“He rung me on Christmas Day and he said, ‘”Step Into Christmas’ is No. 6 in the charts, and I’m 74, and I’m still having f-ing chart hits, this is great! I want to do another Christmas song, will you do it with me?'”
Sheeran added that he was initially skeptical about the proposal but eventually decided to dive in on the track as he got some perspective following the death of a close friend.
“It really just hit home how stuff can just change overnight,” he said. “I was like, ‘Why the f–k am I not doing a Christmas song with Elton John? 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?”
