Ed Sheeran and Bring Me The Horizon will release their heavy rock version of the song ‘Bad Habits On Thursday (18.02.22).
The Grammy-winning 30-year-old and the rockers from the group ‘Teardrops’ shocked the audience as they took to on stage for the BRIT Awards last week to perform a loud rendition of the track with screaming vocals from the frontman Oli Sykes.
Now, they’ve announced that they’ve recorded the collaboration to their fans.
In a FaceTime video posted via social networks, Ed told Oli: “That show was nuts,” and he responded: “I’ve never had so much adrenaline pumping through me.”
Oli 35, who is a musician, said: “There are so many people asking for like a studio version.”
Ed insists: “We have to get one of them out.
He said: “We’ll get Jordan [Fishand the boys on it , and I’ll get the vocals on. Make sure you do the right at the final!”
The track is available for pre-order across all of the major streaming platforms.
The ‘Castle On The Hill’ producer had disclosed that he would record a heavy-metal collaboration with BMTH.
He was quoted in his interview to the Daily Star newspaper’s Wired column: “We’re going to write an album with each other… Making music in the band Bring Me The Horizon was the stuff of dreams.
“I met with the singer Oli Sykesand we planned to write together , but then the pandemic hit, so we kept in touch. I’ve been a huge fan for many years.
“Oddly enough that’s the kind of music I grew up listening to and had a Kerrang subscription and I listened to it constantly.”
Ed joked that his track would be like an “wet fart” if he performed the track live in a solo version while Bring Me The Horizon convinced him that their take would be a good fit.
He said: “I actually said ‘Bad Habits’ could be somewhat of a wet fart if I was walking up and playing normal.
“The track has the sound of EDM which they’ve taken it and made it a totally new thing. I was like”you know what? these guitars are going be awesome.
“It was a week’s turnaround – we emailed each other two weeks ago, recorded it a week ago and rehearsed it three days ago.”
Ed was open to notion of adopting a more hefty look one day, following being a child listening to songs like Cradle of Filth and Slipknot.
In the year 2000, Dani Filth of Cradle of Filth fame announced that the fact that he was in contact with Ed following an exchange on social media, and would love to record a song to benefit charity.
He added: “I’ve actually been emailing with him. He’s actually contacted me. I’ve been invited to his home.
“Well, he told me that he’d be able to come to mine and I explained the fact that I didn’t have an own restaurant or village and that it would be more beneficial if I went to the bar.
“He said he’d do anything. Quite literally. He said he’s a massive fan. He seems like a genuinely very nice guy actually.”
