Ed Sheeran releases song with metal band Bring Me the Horizon


Ed Sheeran tapped British metal band Bring Me the Horizon to rework his 2021 single, Bad habits.

After teaming up for an energetic performance at the Brit Awards, Ed Sheeran and Bring Me the Horizon have released a studio version of their genre flick Bad habits rework.

The track features new heavy guitar breakdowns and backing vocals from Bring Me the Horizon frontman Oli Sykes to add some juicy metal flavor to the track.

On paper, it looks a bit like an obscure collaboration. But BMTH have sweetened their sound in recent years, churning out some glorious pop-punk anthems.

“From receiving the email asking if we’d like to open the Brits with Ed Sheeran to chatting to us and bouncing ideas to rehearse, then play and now go out, it’s of course been quite mental,” noted Sykes.

“But we all want to push the boundaries of our own genres and others, so this was the perfect challenge.”

New-look, bad-boy Sheeran also enjoyed the track’s heavier redesign. “I really enjoyed last week’s show and I think people are going to really like the new version. Can’t wait to get it out,” said the singer.
