Elton John, Ed Sheeran Share New Holiday Single Merry Christmas
Elton John and Ed Sheeran recently released their highly-anticipated holiday single “Merry Christmas.”
The accompanying music video, directed by Jason Koenig and produced by Steve Mac, shows Elton belting out the song on a grand piano, while Ed takes flight with a snowman.
The visual features the duo paying homage to scenes from legacy No. 1 Christmas music videos and iconic Christmas films. Sheeran is also seen dancing around in a sexy Santa suit.
“Feel like there’s so much love/All our family and friends are together where we all belong/Merry Christmas everyone,” Sheeran and Elton sing in the chorus.
Mr Blobby, Jonathan Ross, Big Narstie, Michael McIntyre and The Darkness, are also featured in the visual.
During a recent appearance on “The Tonight Show,” Sheeran reckoned he found a glitch in the system, saying, “So get this. We write it and I title it, ‘Merry Christmas,’ but we’re probably going to need to change that title because there’ll be loads of songs called ‘Merry Christmas.'”
“I went on Spotify, typed in ‘Merry Christmas,’ nothing. There’s ‘Merry Christmas Everyone,’ there’s ‘Happy Xmas’, there’s ‘Merry Xmas’…there’s not a song called ‘Merry Christmas,'” he added.
“Merry Christmas” appears on the “Christmas Edition” of Sheeran’s =, with all profits from this year’s Christmas period going to the Ed Sheeran Suffolk Music Foundation and the Elton John AIDS Foundation.
