Antytila: Ed Sheeran collaboration written on front line

Ukrainian group Antytila have teamed up with Ed Sheeran, releasing a new song partly filmed and recorded while serving in the war against Russia. Antytila are one of the biggest musical acts in Ukraine but stopped working to join the military. Proceeds from the song, released on Monday, will go to help the people of Ukraine.

“Ed feels that pain, compassion and sympathy for Ukrainian people,” lead singer Taras Topolya told the BBC. He said the lyrics were created while he was serving as a medic on the front line in Borodyanka.
Borodyanka, just west of the capital, Kyiv, was occupied by the Russians, who left the town badly damaged. Ukrainian troops have since regained the area. After writing the lyrics, members of the group were also able to film while on the frontline in Kharkiv.

“We just stopped in the middle of the road and were singing there in the middle of nowhere,” he said.
