Ed Sheeran, Bring Me The Horizon to release metal version of ‘Bad Habits’

February seems like a good month for Sheerios, don’t you think?

Just after the release of his “Joker and the Queen” remix featuring his good pal Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran is yet to offer fans a new collaborative track, this time for his single, “Bad Habits.”
The pop singer is going to release a metal version of “Bad Habits” featuring the rock band, Bring Me The Horizon. On February 9, the “Shivers” singer surprised fans as he opened the BRITs Awards 2022 with the band for an electric performance of Bad Habits.

The performance blew up and people instantly demanded for a studio version. And finally, the fans are getting what they wanted.

Oli Sykes, Bring Me The Horizon’’s lead vocalist, took to Twitter the announcement of their collaboration track’s release. He posted a Facetime call session of him and Sheeran with the caption, “sHaLL wE Dr0p thIS tHen?” and tagged the “Shivers” singer. He also included a link to pre-save the song.

In the video, the two artists discussed their past performance as well as the upcoming release of their rendition of the song.

“So many people are asking for a studio version, it’s mental,” Sykes says to Sheeran. The latter then responded, “We have to get one out. Do you think we can turn it around fast?”

Sheeran also cracked a joke in the announcement video, saying, “Make sure it goes proper death growl at the end.”

Before the collaboration announcement, Sheeran revealed that he was in talks with Bring Me The Horizon for a new music even before the pandemic. “We were going to write together but then the pandemic happened, so we were in touch – I’ve been a fan for a long time,” said the singer.

Ed Sheeran and Bring Me The Horizon’s new rendition of “Bad Habits” is set to be released on Friday, February 18.
