Elton John recently shared a post on his Twitter account to give some exciting news to his fans. John announced that his new Christmas song ‘Merry Christmas’ featuring Ed Sheeran was released and invited his fans to check it out and share their comments.
Previously, Elton John and Ed Sheeran had teamed up for a special song for ‘Friends: The Reunion.’ They performed Elton John’s ‘Tiny Dancer,’ a track from his fourth studio album entitled ‘Madman Across the Water’ released on November 5, 1971.

The harmony between John and Sheeran was highly appreciated. Their video received millions of views alongside very kind and funny comments. It seems like the duo enjoyed creating and singing together too; thus, they decided to collaborate on a new song. ‘Merry Christmas’ is out now with its remarkable Chrismas themed official video which has already been viewed by thousands of people
In his recent tweet, Elton John highlighted that he is very excited and happy about releasing his new Christmas special with Ed Sheeran and their fans said they liked the song so much that they had it on loop. The iconic musician also added that all profits are going to be used for Ed Sheeran’s Suffolk Music Foundation and the Elton John’s AIDS Foundation to help more and more people in need during the Christmas period.
John’s tweet read:
“It’s here! My song with Ed Sheeran, ‘Merry Christmas’ is out now everywhere.
Go stream it and check out the music video – it couldn’t be more festive.”
