Charlie Puth and James Taylor

"Why can't we just get along?"

Charlie Puth released his second album Voicenotes last week, and we're loving it.

One of the highlights of the album is a brilliant duet with singer-songwriter legend James Taylor.

'Change' was first unveiled by Charlie at the student-led demonstration March for Our Lives earlier this year, and it was later included on the album.

Listen to the song below:

Charlie said that the song is "dedicated to all of the Parkland students, any lives lost to senseless gun violence, and the world".

He continued: "It wasn't written for [March for Our Lives] specifically. I wrote it a year prior. I don't really know why I wrote it, but now I know why. It just happened to catch up a year late.

"It's about everybody, as humans we all help each other and that song came about through collaboration. This is the most important song I ever wrote."

James Taylor also admired Charlie in a statement, saying: "Mr Puth and I spent an excellent afternoon at Conway Studios in Hollywood this past January. It was a delight to work with such a gifted fellow musician and I'm so excited to finally see the release of the finished piece."

Charlie added: "Recording with James Taylor was a dream come true. He's the reason why I write music and it was an absolute honour to work with him."
