Ed Sheeran has released a remix of his song ‘2step’ featuring Lil Baby, with income from the track being donated to the Ukraine relief effort.

The video for this new version of the track was filmed in Ukrainian capital Kyiv in December last year, before the Russian invasion began.

“I filmed the video for ‘2step’ in the city of Kyiv, Ukraine before the devastating acts of violence started to take place”, says Sheeran. “It was my first time visiting the country and I felt so welcomed during my stay there – everyone from the production crew to the many people I met across my days off”.

“Ukraine is a proud and resilient country and I’m grateful to have had the chance to film my video there”, he adds. “I stand with Ukraine and will be donating my record royalties from YouTube streams of the video to the DEC’s Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal”.

In an accompanying statement, the Ukrainian production company which made the video, Radioaktivefilm, adds: “This video really reminds us of the best of times; it was the last video we did before our world fell apart. Watching it gives us some normality and happiness, and we hope you enjoy this video as much as we do right now”.

Last month, Sheeran headlined ITV’s Concert For Ukraine, which raised £12 million for the Disasters Emergency Committee Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal.
