Ed Sheeran Delivers 'Perfect Symphony' Featuring Andrea Bocelli

Ed Sheeran’s “Perfect” just got another reboot, this time as a classical crossover tune with a guest turn from celebrated Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli

Sheeran hinted at the latest evolution of “Perfect” with an Instagram earlier this week. "Orchestral version of 'Perfect' with the amazing Andrea Bocelli comes out Friday. Orchestrated and produced by my super talented brother Matt, little gift for you all before Christmas," the U.K. pop star captioned. Sheeran sings some lines in Italian on the new track, which is billed as “Perfect Symphony” by Ed Sheeran and Andrea Bocelli and arrived at midnight.

“Perfect” currently sits at No. 1 on the singles charts in the U.S., U.K. and Australia after Sheeran reworked the Divide song into a duet with Beyonce. Now with Bocelli on board -- a legend in his field with more than 80 million album sales and eight career top 10 titles on the Billboard 200 -- “Perfect Symphony” should challenge for the U.K.’s coveted Christmas No. 1 spot.
