• Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift have released a new song
  • Sheeran and Swift have been good friends for over a decade
  • Music video for Sheeran and Swift's song connects to their first collab

Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift are taking the music world by storm once more! Fans of both singers got a treat on Thursday when Sheeran dropped a new version of his track "The Joker And The Queen" featuring Swift's vocals, which also received a music video treatment.

Sheeran and Swift released their first collab in 2012

Sheeran's remix of "The Joker And The Queen" that adds Swift to the track is the newest single from his latest album. The British singer-songwriter released = in October, and songs like "Bad Habits" and "Overpass Graffiti" have already been featured on the radio. It seems likely that this new version of "The Joker And The Queen" will follow suit. Of course as fans know, this isn't the first time that Sheeran and Swift have teamed up! 

The two stars are known to be good friends and frequent collaborators. They first released "Everything Has Changed" in 2012, as one of the singles from Swift's fourth album RED. However, Swift later revealed that the vault track "Run (Taylor's Version)," which debuted years later on RED (Taylor's Version), is the first song she and Sheeran wrote together. Sheeran also appeared on Swift's 2017 album reputation, featured on her song "end game".

Sheeran and Swift's music video for their latest collab also brought back some serious nostalgia for fans. That's because it picks up years after their video for "Everything Has Changed," with the original young stars returning to continue "Ava" and "Jack's" story! The official press release for the video shares that it follows the pair as they "head to university and embark on new adventures."
