The track titled 'Perfect Symphony' is released on Friday (15.12.17), and follows the rendition featuring global megastar Beyonce - which is currently number one in the UK - and sees Ed sing in Italian, while the 26-year-old singer/songwriter's brother Matt Sheeran has produced it.
Announcing the collaboration on Twitter, Andrea wrote: ''We're glad to announce that orchestral version of 'Perfect Symphony' by @edsheeran featuring Andrea Bocelli comes out this Friday. Orchestrated and produced by Matt Sheeran.(sic)''
Alongside a picture of the pair on Instagram, the 'Castle on the Hill' hitmaker added: ''Orchestral version of Perfect with the amazing @andreabocelliofficial comes out friday. Orchestrated and produced by my super talented brother Matt, little gift for you all before Christmas. Hope you love it as much as I do. I sing in Italian too which is fun x (sic)''
It comes after 'Shape of You' hitmaker Ed recently hinted he's dropping a new song in a bid to increase his chances of claiming this year's Christmas number one.
He said previously: ''I do have one more trick up my sleeve. It's not like a Beyonce trick, but it's quite a cool trick.''
Teasing it was a big star for the older ''generation'', Ed added: ''This next one, no-one's expecting.
''It's more for my dad's generation. It'll be out next week. You'll see then.''
Ed also previously said he plans on dropping a 'Despacito' style remix of 'Perfect', but it is yet to surface.
Describing it previously, he said: ''The vibe is that it's a remix to 'Perfect'. I'm just basically going to 'Despacito' 'Perfect.'''
