Ed Sheeran recently explained why he decided to write a James Bond song without being asked to.

During his appearance on Ireland’s “The Late Late Show” (via People), the award-winning singer said that he simply wanted to be prepared. “With Bond, I’ve actually had a theme tune written for about three years, just in case,” he said.

Unfortunately, Sheeran decided to keep the title of the song a secret for fear that someone else might release it before him.

In the same interview, Sheeran said that writing a song for Bond wasn’t his first. He also wrote a song inspired by Eminem even though he was never asked to create one.

“I just recently did a song with one of my all-time heroes, Eminem. I was like, ‘If I ever work with Eminem, I’ve got this song.’ So it’s the same with Bond. If ever I’m called, I will be like, ‘Here you go,’” he said. Luckily, Sheeran already had the chance to collaborate with his idol.

The two singers performed a remix of Eminem’s song, “River.”

Meanwhile, Sheeran has not yet been officially invited by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to their wedding. But the English singer said he’d be more than willing to perform for the royal couple.

Sheeran may be asked to sing a song during Prince Harry and Markle’s first dance, and he said he’s up for it.

In other news, Sheeran also graced the Miss France Pageant in Chateauroux on Sunday where he performed his hit song, “Perfect.” Prior to his performance, Sheeran told his millions of followers on Instagram that Sunday was his last day of work before heading for his Christmas vacation.

According to the “Shape of You” singer, 2017 has been the best professional year of his life. Sheeran thanked his fans for all of their support the past year and throughout the span of his career. He also wished everyone happy holidays and a good break.
