CRADLE OF FILTH's Dani Filth Teases Possible Collaboration with Ed Sheeran

Cradle of Sheeran is a go.


Looks like pop star Ed Sheeran might actually be serious about making a death metal record. According to Cradle Of Filth vocalist Dani Filth in an interview with Kerrang!, he's been in touch with Sheeran about a possible collaboration. Filth also points out that Sheeran was the one who initiated contact, and that he's a pretty big Cradle Of Filth fan.

"I've actually been e-mailing with him… He actually touched base with me," said Filth. "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."

Filth later added that it's really not that crazy he and Sheeran might do something together.

"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 Twizted in America. It's actually turned out more like Tammstein 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."
