A full, official video of Bring Me the Horizon‘s surprise performance alongside Ed Sheeran at Tuesday’s BRIT Awards is streaming now on YouTube.
As previously reported, the “DiE4u” outfit joined the British pop star to open the ceremony with a hard-rocking rendition of Sheeran’s single “Bad Habits,” complete with heavy guitars and screams from Horizon frontman Oli Sykes.
While we don’t know what inspired the collaboration, we’re hoping it’s because of Sheeran’s reported love of death metal. You may remember that Sheeran was quoted by the U.K. tabloid The Sun as being a big fan of the band Cradle of Filth, and saying that he wouldn’t “be opposed” to making his own metal album.
As it just so happens, Bring Me the Horizon collaborated with Cradle frontman Dani Filth on a song off their 2019 album, Amo. Perhaps the BRIT Awards will be the catalyst that leads to an Ed Sheeran metal record.
Bring Me the Horizon, meanwhile, has previously dipped into the pop world for collaborations with Halsey.
