Ed Sheeran is set to team up with K-pop stars Jessi and Sunmi on a new remix of his single “Shivers”.
Earlier today (November 19), Sunmi teased the upcoming “Shivers” rework on Twitter. The snippet features the familiar instrumental from the original song, while Jessi’s voice can be heard singing: “Dude you give me chills”.
The all-new version of ‘Shivers’ will be released on November 24 at 6 p.m. KST. The original version of the song was released in September as the second single from Ed Sheeran’s ‘=’ album, following the hit ‘Bad Habits’.
