Elton John is somewhat surprised by his fellow singer and protégé Ed Sheeran, who recently revealed on NPO Radio 2 that he is working on a Christmas record with the British singer.
“I was obliged to secrecy and then Sheeran goes to the Netherlands with his big fucking mouth,” says 74-year-old John jokingly, but with a serious undertone. He spoke to the British music magazine NME, in which he was confronted by the revelation of Sheeran.
“It should indeed come out, but we’re not done yet. There is still work to be done,” John continued. He stressed that he cannot say more. “Because it’s with him.”
