Earlier this year Dani Filth told Sophie K at Knotfest that the collaboration with Sheeran hadn’t been finished but was in the works:
Ed’s done some of it, but then he had a baby, and then he got obviously sidetracked with that and doing whatever Ed does, which is to play massive shows around the globe. He’s not at our beck and call. But he is gonna finish it, he assures me. Actually, I spoke to him quite recently.
In July 2021, Ed Sheeran hinted towards a potential desire to take his music in an entirely new direction and explore unfamiliar sonic realms, saying to The Sun:
I was really into death metal as a kid. I listened to CRADLE OF FILTH and SLIPKNOT and all that stuff. I’m not saying I could ever step into that world. I learnt all those riffs on guitar as a kid. That’s something I’ve never thought about doing — but something I would not be opposed to creating.
