Cradle Of Filth’s Dani Filth Offers Update On Collaboration With Ed Sheeran: “We’re Hoping For It To Be Out By The Summer”

Cradle Of Filth’s Dani Filth has shared a new update on the band’s upcoming collaboration with Ed Sheeran. The frontman says they are “hoping for it to be out by the summer.”

Filth told Metal Hammer the following:

“Ed’s done all his parts. It’s just bass and vocals for me to do on my return to England after Easter. It’s exactly how you can imagine it’ll sound, if you can imagine Ed Sheeran with Cradle Of Filth. He plays acoustic guitar on it, but it’s heavy; it’s got a blast beat in there. The plan is to do it as a charity single. We’re hoping for it to be out by the summer.”

He also added the following when asked what it is like being friends with a pop singer:

“Weird. I’ve spoken to him very regularly over the last two years. Like me, he’s a real Suffolk boy. When he came to the studio that day, he didn’t come down with a cavalcade of reporters: he turned up on his own, guitar on his back, Cradle Of Filth hoodie on, and got on with it. It was fucking great.”
