It’s been all eyes and ears on Ed Sheeran and Bring Me The Horizon in the past week or so after Sheeran’s surprise live performance with Oli Sykes, delivering a very different version of ‘Bad Habits‘. In case you missed it, this recently happened at the BRIT Awards at The O2 in Greenwich in Greater London. sets that in stone. The two sensations pleased their respective fanbases, and of course the cross-promotion aspect as well.
Earlier this week, Bring Me The Horizon shared a Zoom video called between Sheeran and Sykes where they teased the official release of their ‘Bad Habits‘ remix for today – Friday, 18 February.
The single has finally been made available and it comes across better than anticipated. The official visualiser has a 4D animation of Sheeran and Sykes with a rotational view of surrounding bats. Sonically, Sheeran gets stuck in initially and then the BMTH signature sounds kick in, both instrumentally and vocally. The track develops with some great work, particularly from Jordan Fish as well as finally hearing Sykes finish the track with the same growls we heard on the live performance.
The Ed Sheeran / Bring Me The Horizon collab comes only weeks after BMTH shared their ‘Moon Over The Castle‘ instrumental cover for videogame Gran Turismo 7. Before that we heard ‘Die4u‘ – their first single since their EP Post Human: Survival Horror (our review here). Fans are hoping for another EP this year, but time will tell what’s on the…. horizon for the Sheffield group.
