Ed Sheeran Recorded A Dance Anthem With “Animals” Producer Martin Garrix

After dabbling in hip-hop on Lupe Fiasco‘s “Old School”, Ed Sheeran is planning his first EDM adventure with Dutch producer Martin Garrix. The DJ opened up about the looming collaboration at a press conference in Miami, revealing that the song isn’t finished or even approved by their respective labels (yet) but the vocal has been recorded.

The 17-year-old wunderkind is already one of the hottest names in EDM, burning up the Billboard Hot 100 with breakthrough hit “Animals”. It’s still sitting pretty in the top 30 —  an incredible achievement for an instrumental dance anthem. If the track with Ed eventuates, it will be Martin’s first single with a topline and, no doubt, another crossover hit.

Are you salivating at the prospect of this collab? Let us know in the comments below.

    This will probably be the worst possible turn of events for EDM. EDM needs to stay where it is, not turn to pop, because if it does, it will turn out worse
