As previously reported, Ed Sheeran recently said that he would be open to the possibility of making a metal album. Now, during a recent interview with Kerrang! Radio, Cradle Of Filth frontman Dani Filth revealed that he has been e-mailing with Sheeran about a possible collaboration.
Filth said the following:
“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.”
He also said that he doesn’t think the idea is far fetched:
“We’ve always been like that. If someone tells us not to do something, then we’ll do it. That’s been our prerogative the whole time. I did this rap song with this band called Twiztid in America. It’s actually turned out more like Rammstein and Beastie Boys than full-on rap. So, in that respect, I think it the Ed Sheeran collaboration would be great fun. I think it’d be great if we did it for charity, because at least it would bring a bit of credibility to it. Because obviously to his public, it’d be, like, Oh my god, he’s got this weird comical guy,’ and to my public it’d be, like, ‘Oh my god, this is a bit weird, isn’t it? But I think that sort of thing nowadays works.”
