John And Sheeran's ''Merry Christmas'' Announcement

Written by Chief Editor.

Elton and Ed Sheeran's new holiday tune is coming out at week's end.

The former wrote on Twitter: ''Just under a year ago, I called Ed Sheeran to see if he wanted to make a Christmas single with me and now it's nearly here!'' 
He added that it's out on the third of December, ''with all proceeds from this year's Christmas period going to the Ed Sheeran Suffolk Music Foundation & the Elton John AIDS Foundation.''
Both singers shared a teaser video on social media which saw Ed recreating Andrew Lincoln's scene in Love Actually. He knocked on Elton's door with a set of note cards in hand, just as Lincoln's character, ''Mark,'' did to profess his love for ''Julia,'' played by Keira Knightley, in the 2003 film, Love Actually.
''Hello. Last Christmas I received a call from my mate Elton John and he told me we should do a Christmas song,'' the cards read. ''And I replied, 'Yeah. Maybe in 2022.' But I actually wrote the chorus that day and here we are. Our Christmas song Merry Christmas is out this Friday. Go pre-order or pre-save it now. It has sleigh bells. A lot of them. . . .''
