After teaming up with Beyonce for an acoustic rendition of his No. 1 hit, the British singer releases an orchestral version of the song featuring the Italian tenor.
Ed Sheeran has just unleashed another reboot of his hit song "Perfect". After enlisting Beyonce Knowles for the acoustic version, he continues the surprise collaboration by having Andrea Bocelli join him in the newly-released track, which is billed as "Perfect Symphony".
The new song arrived on early Friday, December 15 as promised via Spotify. While the 30-second preview features the Italian tenor singing parts of the song in Italian, the British redhead also sings some lines in Italian on the full track.
Ed previously teased the unlikely collaboration on Instagram. "Orchestral version of Perfect with the amazing @andreabocelliofficial comes out friday," he posted two days ago. "Orchestrated and produced by my super talented brother Matt, little gift for you all before Christmas. Hope you love it as much as I do. I sing in Italian too which is fun x"
He also promised that there would be a music video for the orchestral version of "Perfect". Appearing on NBC's "Today" on December 8, he gushed that the video's "really pretty."
"Perfect", the fourth single from his third studio album "Divide (division sign)", currently sits at No. 1 on the singles charts in the U.S., U.K. and Australia after he dropped the acoustic version featuring Beyonce. Now with the legendary pop, opera singer featured in the new version, the song may continue to maintain its reign throughout the Christmas.
Speaking to E! News at iHeartRadio's Jingle Ball, he praised his collaborator, "Her talent kinda knows no bounds. She's such a friendly person and super, super talented."
Ed will kick off the North American leg of his "÷ Tour" on August 18 next year. He has been hitting the road to promote the effort since March and is currently taking a break before resuming the tour in March in Australia and New Zealand.
