Ed Sheeran is thankful for his friendship with Taylor Swift. In a new interview, the 32-year-old singer opened up about how his friendship with the pop star is like “therapy.”
“I have long, long, long conversations with Taylor about stuff just because I feel like she’s one of the only people that actually truly understands where I’m at,” Sheeran said. The “Thinking Out Loud” singer added that he recently spent over an hour on the phone with Swift.
“Everything that was on our minds we talked about,” he said of their conversation. “I mean, that in itself is kind of therapy as well because you’re actually talking to someone that genuinely gets it.” The English singer-songwriter said Swift shares his same feelings and insecurities about how people, friends, and family treat you. “She’s just basically in the same sphere,” he said of his longtime pal.
The duo have also collaborated on a few songs together. Last year, they released “The Joker and The Queen.” In 2021, Sheeran was featured on Swift’s Red (Taylor’s Version) vault track “Run.” He was also featured on her 2017 track “End Game,” and 2012’s “Everything Has Changed.”
Sheeran released his sixth studio album Friday (May 6), Subtract. It is the fifth and final entry in his series of albums titled with mathematical symbols. Take a look below to see a breakdown of the tracklist.
