Ed Sheeran opens up about working with Eminem: “We spoke Marvel and Avengers for hours”

In a recent interview, Ed Sheeran shared details of his experience working with Eminem in the rapper’s Detriot studio.

Sheeran spoke about working with the legendary rapper, recalling how, on their first meeting, they spent hours talking about their shared love of the Marvel franchise. The two went on to collaborate, using Eminem’s studio in Detroit to produce a new track.

Sheeran first worked with Eminem on the rapper’s 2017 album ‘Revival’. The two dueted on the track ‘River’, with Sheeran also featuring on ‘Those Kinda Nights’. Sheeran also worked with Eminem on ‘Remember The name’, featuring 50 Cent.

Sheeren described his meeting with Eminem, saying: It [the studio] was in Detroit and I was playing a gig in Detroit. And yeah, I arrived. He’s got loads of games consoles there. He loves games. I actually bought him a Nintendo 64 with GoldenEye on it as a gift. Yeah. I just stepped in there.”

“Actually, [the] first time we met, we didn’t make music. I hung out there for about four hours, and we just spoke Marvel and Avengers for about four hours. And then the next time I went back, we made a tune. The first tune we made, I was in Mexico and his producer flew to Mexico, and I did the hook there and stuff,” Sheeran continued.

Elsewhere, Sheeran has announced that he will be performing an “intimate” show at London’s 02 Shepherds Bush Empire, marking the anniversary of the release of his debut album ‘+‘.

The show at the 2000-seat venue will be a rare chance for fans to see Sheeran in a more personal setting. The star has been performing in nothing smaller than a stadium for some time now, so the show will feel much more intimate in comparison. The date also marks Sheeran’s first headline show since his 2019 ‘Divide Tour’.
