The pop stars have confirmed that 'I Don't Care' will be released this Friday, May 10.
Despite announcing his hiatus from music earlier this year, Justin Bieber has confirmed that he will appear on a brand new collaborative single with Ed Sheeran. The two megastars joined forces to create, 'I Don't Care', which is set to be released this Friday.
Both artists have taken to Instagram over the last few day to tease about the single's imminent arrival. Last week, Bieber and Sheeran shared photo of each other standing in front of a green screen, with the caption '10' - a reference to the single's release date on May 10. Lyrics and a snippet of the track have also been posted online.
Atlantic Records, Sheeran's label, has also confirmed the release, announcing that the single is available to pre-order/pre-save now.

News of the release comes just days after Bieber's controversial statement about American singer Chris Brown, who has been accused of physical and sexual assault on numerous occasions in the past, and recently made offensive remarks towards indie pop group Chvrches. In an Instagram post, Bieber compared Brown to Michael Jackson and 2Pac, stating: "Everyone wants to wait til people die to give them the credit they deserve. I'm calling it now, when [Chris Brown] passes away after a long full life, you will miss what you had in front of you the whole time".
Sheeran and Bieber previously worked together on Bieber's 2015 hit single, 'Love Yourself'.
