Cradle of Filth-Ed Sheeran Collaboration May Be In The Works. Yes, Really.


It’s been brought to my attention that Ed Sheeran and Dani Filth of Cradle of Filth are becoming pretty good friends and if that is living rent free in my mind, I just can’t do that alone.

Let’s catch you up. This is Dani Filth from Cradle of Filth. Cradle of Filth is black-gothic metal. Kinda symphonic, definitely evil.

And this is Ed Sheeran. He wrote the song your sister danced to at her wedding. Not a dry eye in the place. Seriously, I'm not going to rag on him. He's talented and there's something for everyone out there friend.

It sounds like a future sitcom, but these two unlikely friends are now talking about collaborating with each other.

Back in July, Ed told Britain's Sun that he was a fan the hard stuff as a teen. "I was really into death metal as a kid. That's something I've never thought about doing, but something I would not be opposed to creating." (Writers note: I don't think Cradle of Filth is death metal but we can Star-Wars-Level geek out about the many sub-genres of metal another time).

Filth expressed doubts at the time, but now tells Kerrang!, "I've actually been E-mailing with him… He actually touched base with me. I've been invited up to his place. Well, he said he could come down to mine, but I pointed out to him that I don't own my own bar or village, and it'd be better if I went there. He said he'd do anything, quite literally. He said he's a massive fan. He seems like a genuinely very nice guy, actually.”
