Ed Sheeran has finally made his comeback with his new single, and his bestie Taylor Swift is all in for it. The 30 year old singer released the music video of “Bad Habits” at midnight on Friday, which was directed by Dave Meyers, and we see a never-before-seen look of Ed Sheeran.
“Bad Habits” Ed Sheeran
In his latest music video, we see Ed Sheeran in a bold, glittery-vampire avatar. In the video, he switched his signature ginger hair to more blonde, and has fangs for teeth.
“Feels great to be back with my new single. I wanted the video for ‘Bad Habits’ to play on the nature of habits in a fantastical way so I decided on vampires,” Sheeran said in a statement. “It was mega fun getting into character except for the heights (that wasn’t so fun). Enjoy x.”
“Bad Habits” marks Sheeran’s first official release since his 2019 Grammy-nominated No.6 Collaborations Project album which features appearances from an array of fellow artists, among the likes of Justin Bieber, Camila Cabello, Travis Scott, Eminem, 50 Cent and Cardi B.
Taylor Swift’s reaction to “Bad Habits”
The friendship of Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran goes way back, and the two have always been there to support each other and their music through the years.
Swift took to her Instagram stories to post a clip of “Bad Habits” which Sheeran had posted on his account. “It’s Ed and it’s glitter so it’s a yes for me”, she wrote. She also took to her Twitter account to promote the song
The two of them had collaborated for “Everything has Changed” in 2013, and again collaborated for “End Game” in 2018 for Taylor’s album Reputation. “Everything has Changed” belonged to Taylor Swift’s 2013 album Red, and since she will be re-recording her album, and will be releasing the “Taylor’s Version” this year in November, means we might also be getting the “Taylor’s Version” of Everything has Changed ft Ed Sheeran!
