Ed Sheeran has already talked about writing a song for Hilary Duff’s comeback album (he described it as “good” in case you’re wondering) but the former teen queen has been pretty tight-lipped about the whole experience. Well, she finally spilled the tea — revealing the duet’s title (“Tattoo”) and some details about the x singer/songwriter’s creative process.

“He vocally produced it and came in the booth with me,” Hilary told MTV about the much-anticipated collab. “I was really intimidated because, normally, they don’t do that, so I kept looking up and being like, ‘You’re Ed Sheeran and I’m singing the song that you wrote and I want to do right by it’. Happily, it all turned out well.” It was awesome and then he, in like 15 minutes, did all the low stuff and the harmonies and the background.” Can’t wait to hear it.
