Niall Horan has teamed up with Anne-Marie to release a single in aid of BBCs Children in Need.

The pair have joined forces to cover Fleetwood Mac’s hit song ‘Everywhere.’

It is their second single together, as the pair previously released ‘Our Song’ in 2021 for Anne-Marie’s second album ‘Therapy’.

In the music video for ‘Everywhere’ the singers are joined by fellow pop superstars Ed Sheeran on guitar, Griff on synths and Yungblud on bass.

Fleetwood Mac star Christine McVie, who wrote ‘Everywhere’, shared her praise for their cover: “I’m thrilled with this new version of Everywhere and to be part of this year’s Children In Need campaign. I hope we can really make a difference.”

Niall said that the song is about togetherness.

“I have supported BBC Children In Need many times over the years, but given what we have all been through over the last year and a half, it feels more important than ever. Togetherness sits at the heart of BBC Children In Need, and that’s what this track is all about.”

“I hope people enjoy it, but above all, I hope it lets anyone who might be struggling right now know that we are here for them,” he added.

Speaking about their duet, Anne-Marie said: “As we have seen over the past eighteen months, amazing things happen when we come together to help make a difference, and that’s why I am so proud to be releasing this special track with Niall.”

“I hope everyone loves it as much as we do.”

Last year’s BBC Children in Need single went straight to number one on the UK singles chart. The charity song saw Foo Fighters perform their hit ‘Times Like These’ along with a host of pop stars.

Dua Lipa, Chris Martin, Jess Glynne, Mabel, Sigrid, and Paloma Faith were all part of the song, as was Anne-Marie.

Children in Need is an annual telethon from the BBC in order to raise money to improve the lives of disadvantaged children and young people in the UK. Celebs take part each year for a night of fundraising that entertains viewers with comedy sketches, musical performances and challenges. People who have previously been supported by the charity also tell their story.

The telethon has released charity singles in partnership with the BCC since 1985. Boyzone, McFly, S Club 7, JLS and the Spice Girls are among the artists who released covers in aid of Children in Need.

The show began in 1980 and was presented by Terry Wogan for 34 years until 2014. Since then it has been presented by Dermot O’Leary, Tess Daly and Mel Giedroyc.

This year Mel will be joined by Ade Adepitan, Graham Norton, Chris Ramsey and Alex Scott.

‘Everywhere’ will be released on Friday November 19th - the same day this year’s Children in Need telethon will broadcast.
