Cape Town - Anne-Marie has recorded new songs with Ed Sheeran for her upcoming second studio album. The singer revealed that the pair are back to their hitmaking ways in an interview with The Sun.

Anne-Marie (born Anne-Marie Rose Nicholson) supported Ed on many legs of his Divide Tour in 2017 and 2018.

South African fans will remember that Ed brought the tour to Johannesburg and Cape Town for several sold-out shows in 2019. However, Anne-Marie did not join her longtime collaborator during that leg of the successful tour.

Ed and Anne-Marie also wrote the latter's uber smash, 2002 together.

About reuniting with The Shape of You singer, Anne-Marie said: "We just had to. Also, it will have happened anyway, because that (2002) was a great song, wasn't it?"

She added: "I don't know how many we've written. But there's going to be more."

She went on: "I think it's ten times better than the first music. I love Friends and 2002 – they're my favourite songs I've written – so it's the next step from them."

Anne-Marie's new single Birthday is out now, and you can listen to it below.
