Ed Sheeran and Kylie Minogue have joined forces on an upcoming song called “Visiting Hours”. It’s set to be featured in Sheeran’s forthcoming album.
Ed Sheeran and Kylie Minogue Got Together Earlier This Year
The pair performed together earlier this year at the memorial service for Australian music mogul Michael Gudinski. Now Sheeran revealed he has invited Minogue to add her vocals to the song ‘Visiting Hours’ on his new album.
A source told The Sun, “He wrote ‘Visiting Hours’ in quarantine in Australia. Performed it at the gig, and asked Kylie to feature on it as she was there too, with the pair having hit it off. The song was a dedication to Michael and Kylie felt it right to put her vocals on the track. It was a fitting tribute to the music legend and she was flattered to be asked by Ed.”
The moving song also includes the vocals of Jimmy Barnes and is set to be featured on Ed’s upcoming studio album, believed to be called Subtract.
Ed Revealed Kylie Will Join Him on “Visiting Hours”
Ed told ‘Ash London LIVE’: “Jimmy Barnes and Kylie are actually singing on that on the album now. I’ve got them singing backing vocals on it. From knowing Michael, they are the most important people in his life musically. He was always saying, ‘Kylie’ or ‘Jimmy Barnes’. When I was in Australia, I sang with Kylie. I was hanging with Jimmy Barnes and I said to them, ‘You guys have to be on the song’. So I got back to England, I recorded it and sent it off to them and they’re on it.
Sheeran added, “I used to send Michael songs because he would always say, ‘You need to send me songs for Jimmy’. So I used to send him loads. He always wanted me to sing with Kylie and I ended up getting to sing with her.”
The news of the new collaboration arrives right after Sheeran’s huge return to music after releasing “Bad Habits,” the lead single off his forthcoming album.
