Ed Sheeran's only gone and teamed up with celebrity chef Jamie Oliver to create a new song anthem to raise awareness for Food Revolution Day

As well as having Ed co-write the song, which aims to get listeners to sign an online petition backing the campaign to educate children about their food choices, Jamie ALSO brought along some superstar friends to sing on the track.

Leading vocals on the chorus is legendary musician Paul McCartney, while everyone from Professor Green and Alesha Dixon to George The Poet and (yes, really) Hugh Jackman himself appear on the song.

"I'm grateful to absolutely everyone who worked on the song and gave their time and incredible talent for free!" Jamie said in a statement about the anthem. "The message of the song is an obvious one, we desperately need a revolution when it comes to giving our kids the knowledge they need to make better choices about food.

"The song is one extremely powerful vehicle to help us spread them message about the importance of food education around the world."

Jamie Oliver's #FoodRevolutionDay takes place Friday 15th May.
