Ed Sheeran has another new "Perfect" rendition.

The ÷ singer released "Perfect Symphony" on Friday with the help of iconic Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli. Like "Perfect Duet" with Beyoncé, "Perfect Symphony" is essentially a duet as well. But the track is given new life with classical instrumentation, as well as Bocelli's verse, which is delivered entirely in his native tongue.

Bocelli's words are roughly a direct translation of what Beyoncé sings in her version, as well as what Sheeran croons in the original, and like with Beyoncé, the song culminates in the two singers harmonizing a final chorus.

Sheeran released an accompanying visual with the song, which features Sheeran and Bocelli laying down their vocal parts. Watch the video below to see and hear the song below.

Sheeran revealed the Bocelli collaboration on last week's Today show.

"It's just kind of like a little present for Christmas. There's a really beautiful video that comes with it," he teased.

"Perfect Duet" went to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, making it Queen Bey's first appearance in the top spot since 2008's "Single Ladies."
