It’s quite an unexpected duo. This Friday, Vianney shared his new theme Giving me a call in collaboration with an unprecedented guest: Ed Sheeran. Together, the two artists deliver an autumnal ballad in which the British pop star even tries to sing in French, a first in his career.
This title was recorded in the greatest secret in the basement of Ed Sheeran, in London. “I arrived with my computer, my sound card and my microphone. He was in charge of the guitars. And we recorded things, even Giving me a callVianney says in a press release.
Et d’ajouter: “Ed venait de perdre son meilleur ami, et j’avais commencé un texte dans lequel je m’imaginais endeuillé du mien. Nous avons parlé de ça, la puissance de certaines amitiés, sans lesquelles il nous serait douloureux d ‘move along.”
A first meeting in 2021
