Ed Sheeran just gave us the biggest update on Taylor Swift’s re-release of her fan-favourite album ‘Red’.
‘Red’ gave us heartbreak anthems and bops such as ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’, ’22’ and ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together’.
It was also the album she collaborated with Ed Sheeran for ‘Everything Has Changed’.
Ed has confirmed that he's reunited with his long-term pal to re-record their boppy ballad – because he told us so during a chat on The Official Big Top 40.
In a fan Q&A over Zoom, one lucky fan asked when he’ll be recording with Taylor again.
“I’ve already done it,” he spilled. “I’ve already recorded it.”
He also teased other secrets Taylor has up her sleeve: “Taylor’s got a few surprises in store I’ll say that."
The four-time Grammy winner even shared a behind-the-scenes clip to his Instagram of him laying down the vocals for the re-recording of the famous collaboration!
In the video you can hear Sheeran re-tracking the harmonies for the "Everything Has Changed" chorus – we can't wait ot hear the finished product!
He also gave us all some very juicy intel on a new track between the talented duo that they penned during their first meeting!
Ed wrote: "There’s also a brand new song me and Taylor wrote the first day we met called ‘Run’ that’s out with the new version of the record."
The lucky fan snuck in two questions for Ed, his other being: “When do you plan on releasing the song ‘Penguins’?”
To which Ed responded: “Penguins is probably going to come out… I’m going to re-package the record that’s coming out this year hopefully before tour.
“And I’m hoping to put ‘Penguins’ and ‘One Life’ on that. There was just no sort of space they lived in when I was having my time off.”
Taylor's already been bigging up Ed over on Twitter, writing on Friday after his new song came out: "Ed has a new song out and I legitimately cannot get it out of my head! And this VIDEO!! Stream/Buy/Support/bop to it uncontrollably all summer #BadHabits."
2021 is already Taylor and Ed's year and we're here for it.
