Sheeran performed the track at the state memorial service for the well-known music executive and his close friend at Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena back in March.

“Jimmy Barnes and Kylie are actually singing on that on the album now. I’ve got them singing backing vocals on it,” he told Ash London.

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

Jimmy Barnes has since revealed how the collaboration came to be during a new interview on Sunrise.

“Ed Sheeran was a dear friend of Michaels, they toured a lot together and I’d met Ed on a number of occasions,” he explained.

“When Michael passed away, Ed was so taken and hurt by the whole thing that he flew over here, went into lockdown for two weeks and came to the funeral, just so he could express his grief and support for Michael’s family.”

Barnes said Sheeran asked him to provide backing vocals on the track during a chat following the service, describing it as “a lovely gesture.”

“He said ‘I couldn’t make this record without having you guys sing on it.”

“I don’t think Ed really needed me to scream all over it, but I just did some soft backing vocals,” he joked.

The collaboration announcement comes as Barnes releases his 20th album and gears up to embark on a tour of Australia in September.
