Ed Sheeran contributed to Ronan Keating’s upcoming solo album.
After the ‘Shivers’ hitmaker played guitar on the Boyzone star’s latest record, ‘Twenty Twenty’ of 2020, the Irish charts confirmed he had ‘done something’ about the follow-up, which should be released later this year.
Ronan told The Sun’s Weird column about his upcoming plans: “I have an album in November and a tour in January, February and March. It’s a conceptual recording.
“Indirectly Ed did something on the new album but I can’t tell you more at this point.
“He played guitar on the last of a few songs. “
“Twenty Twenty” saw hitmaker “Life Is A Rollercoaster” dip his toes into the country, as he teamed up with Australian actress and singer Clare Bowen – who is best known for her role as Scarlett O’Connor in the ABC / CMT musical drama television series ‘Nashville’ – about the duo ‘Love Will Remain’.
The collaboration took place as Ronan’s model wife Storm is a huge “Nashville” fan and so he decided to DM Clare, whom he hailed as having a “Dolly Parton-style fit” to his. voice, on social media to see if she would be ready for work.
The 44-year-old star said at the time: “The song was by far a duet from the minute it was written. My wife Storm and I love the ‘Nashville’ TV series and I thought Clare Bowen playing it. One of the leads in the show would be a perfect fit for this track.
“We had chatted on social media for a bit about the collaboration, then I realized that was the song for her! She has a wonderfully fresh tone in her voice with a Dolly Parton-like fit, which was exactly what. that I wanted for the song. “
Shania Twain, Robbie Williams, Emeli Sande and Nina Nesbitt also performed a duet with Ronan on the LP.
