Martin Garrix has admitted his collaboration with Ed Sheeran is unlikely to be released because their record labels can't agree a date

Martin Garrix's collaboration with Ed Sheeran is unlikely to be released.

The 20-year-old DJ teamed up with the 'Shape of You' singer to record 'Rewind Repeat It' and has performed two versions of the track at Miami festival Ultra in 2015 and 2016 but has revealed it is unlikely to ever get an official release because their record labels couldn't agree on a date to bring out the song.

Speaking on Dutch Radio show with Coen & Sander, he said: "It's all label issues and a lot of headaches.

"It was going to be an official track, so we postponed all my other singles, but the label delayed the track because they wanted to release other tracks from Ed first.

"At one point, it was two years ago, I didn't release a radio single for five, six months. So, then you get annoyed. So, I don't think we're ever going to release the track."

Martin recently admitted he loves the feeling of making others happy with his music.

He shared: "[I love to] make people happy doing what makes me happy. If I see someone smile, it makes me smile.

"So if I see a thousand people in a crowd smile it makes me so happy. It gives me so much adrenaline. After every show I can't sleep. It's such an insane feeling."

And the 'Animals' hitmaker never "dreamt" of being so successful.

He said: "The crazy thing was ... I didn't even dream of this. Four years ago I was at a festival as a fan and Fatboy Slim was on the main stage and he played one of my songs.

"I was in the crowd and couldn't move. It was the weirdest thing. I was just standing there [in shock]. I thought my life was made and nothing would ever beat that feeling. Then the next year we got booked on that main stage."
