Ed Sheeran has said that Elton John calls him every day.
The pair have been vying for that number one spot in the UK singles charts in the last while, with Elton releasing Cold Heart as part of his latest album The Lockdown Sessions, while Sheeran has seen his new tracks Bad Habits and Shivers hit top spot in the charts since his return to music.
Ed Sheeran told NZ Herald that Elton has been a wonderful show of solace and support to him, especially since the death of his promoter and friend Michael Gudinski.
Sheeran said, “I say this to people and they think I’m lying or exaggerating, but Elton calls me every single day".
“He used to ring me about once a month – well, we do it on FaceTime via iPad because neither of us has a phone", he continued. "Then when Lyra was born it became more like weekly – he’s a dad as well and he’d check in".
The Thinking Out Loud singer also added, “But then when Michael died he rang me the day after and I just broke down and cried".
“And from that day – I spoke to him this morning, yesterday – no word of a lie, every single day he’s rung me. Whether it’s a half-hour chat or two minutes, he always checks up on me".
The pair have also confirmed in separate interviews that they will release a Christmas single this year,.
