And all the “Merry Christmas” proceeds with be going to charity!
Global (06 December 2021) – Ed Sheeran and Elton John have released a Christmas song, bringing all the festive feels!
“So kiss me under the mistletoe. Pour out the wine let’s toast and pray for December snow. I know there’s been pain this year but it’s time to let it go. Next year you never know, but for now Merry Christmas.”
Sheeran and John set out to create a Christmas song that will live on and spread holiday cheer every single year. Written by both artists and produced by Steve Mac, the collaboration is the first time the two have worked together on a song together, despite being friends for the last decade.
“Elton rang me on Christmas Day to say Merry Christmas. Elton rings me almost every single day,” Sheeran said. “He said, ‘’Step Into Christmas’ is Number 6 in the charts! I want to do another Christmas song – will you do it with me?’”
They ultimately plan to donate proceeds from the project to charities near to their hearts, sharing the importance of giving back to his local arts program in England and The Elton John AIDS Foundation.
