Ed Sheeran will apparently be joining the growing list of A-listers to spread the Christmas cheer this coming December 2021, telling fans that he has written a Christmas song with none other than Sir Elton John.

In what appeared to be a tone of shallow guilt, the Shivers singer told Dutch radio station NPO Radio 2 that Elton John enlisted him for the collaboration during a regular catch up call last Christmas.

Sheeran continued to share that he was skeptical at first but due to losing a close friend earlier this year and the possibility of missing out on great opportunities – had a change of heart.

The news comes during the middle of Sheeran’s current album run, having released three singles from the upcoming project =. All of which have charted here at Asia Pop 40. 

We look forward to hearing the new jingle from Ed and Elton as well as the album!
