Katie Price has revealed that she’d like to record an acoustic album to raise money for the British Lung Foundation – and she wants Ed Sheeran to help her do it.
Price last released music with Peter Andre collaborative album A Whole New World in 2006. She also auditioned to represent the UK in 2005’s Eurovision Song Contest with her track ‘Not Just Anybody’.
Now, according to an interview with The Sun, Price is urging Sheeran to help her resurrect her music career with a new acoustic album.
“I’m going to bring out another album, purely to make money for the British Lung Foundation, and want to do acoustic versions,” she said.
Later calling for a collaboration with Sheeran, Price said: “Ed, come on!” Sheeran is yet to respond to the request.
Meanwhile, Sheeran was denied planning permission to build a ‘Saxon chapel’ in his estate after he was blocked by local residents. Their reasons state that they don’t want there to be two churches in the village, while the local council stated that it would create a “jarring anomaly in the landscape”.
“By opting for a clearly Christian style place of worship this application, rather than being sympathetic to landscape character, creates a jarring anomaly in the landscape, in that it would create a second place of worship in the same view as the existing village church,” says the local council’s report. “This would never be seen in the Suffolk landscape.”
The report also said there were “too many contradictions” in Sheeran’s application, with the planned ‘fake ruines’ appearing “as a conceit and detract from the authenticity of the building”, while the design “cannot quite decide if it is a whimsical folly or a serious facsimile”.
