Ed Sheeran teases collaboration with Kylie Minogue on his new album

He’s also confirmed that another beloved Australian musician, Jimmy Barnes, appears on the same track

Ed Sheeran has confirmed in a new interview that Kylie Minogue will appear on his forthcoming album.

Speaking to Australian radio host Ash London, Sheeran confirmed that Minogue, as well as beloved Australian musician Jimmy Barnes, provide backing vocals on a yet-to-be-released track.

Sheeran crossed paths with both Minogue and Barnes at the Victorian state memorial for the late Michael Gudinski, the veteran Australian music executive who founded the Mushroom Group, held at Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena back in March.

London, who was in attendance, complimented Sheeran’s performance of an unreleased song titled ‘Visiting Hours’.

Sheeran then responded, “Jimmy Barnes and Kylie are actually singing on that on the album now. I’ve got them singing backing vocals on it.

“I was there that night, and those two people – from knowing Michael – they’re the most important people in Michael’s life, musically.”
