The massively popular singer songwriter recorded the song in Australia last month after 2FM presenter Eoghan McDermott provided the lyrics phonetically.

The song, now called 'Ag Smaoineamh Os Ard' was first played on McDermott's show today and they posted a link to the audio of the song on the 2FM Facebook page.

Other acts to appear on the CD will include Kodaline, The Coronas and Delorentos.

Fair play to Ed and Eoghan, this is a great new addition to the Irish language.
