Dani Filth & Ed Sheeran

Dani Filth Shares Updates On New Cradle Of Filth Album & Single With Ed Sheeran


Metal Hammer recently published an interview with Cradle Of Filth vocalist Dani Filth. Among the topics covered were the band’s much-hyped collaboration with English singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran and the gothic extreme metallers next studio album. Speaking first of the collaboration, Filth offered:

“…When he came to the studio that day [for our collaboration], 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.”

When pressed for further details, Filth replied:

Ed’s done all his parts. It’s just bass and vocals for me to do. 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 blastbeat in there. It’s a bit of everything. The plan is to do it as a charity single, because, first off, everybody jumped to the conclusion that we were doing this for the money and we wanted to knock that on the head. We’re hoping for it to be out this summer.”

As for the next full-length outing from Cradle Of Filth, he offered:

“We started recording the new album in May. We’ve got a few summer festivals but this year, at least until mid-September, is about the new album. We’re just polishing off a few bits, but it’s exciting! It’s very modern, but it’s also very Dusk… And Her Embrace. Our fans are gonna love it!”
