The pop megastar Ed Sheeran said recently in an interview, that he loved metal music when he was young, and that he listened to bands such as Cradle of Filth and Slipknot.
Now Cradle Of Filth singer Dani Filth has revealed in a recent Kerrang! Radio interview that he has been exchanging emails with Ed Sheeran and may be planning to travel to his house in the future to possibly make music together. Dani Filth said the following in the interview:
”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.”
Dani Filth says that the band has always been willing to collaborate with different musicians and would see a collaboration with Ed Sheeran as nothing but a great thing. Filth had this to say on the subject:
”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.”
