Ed Sheeran is taking his love for London one step further with the Sir Spyro remix of "Take Me Back To London." The track, which dropped on Friday (August 23), features Stormzy, who appears in the original, along with fellow English rappers Jaykae and Aitch. Sheeran also shared a video for the new remix, which shows him and Stormzy cruising in an open field in a black Rolls Royce Cullinan and a tour bus party with Jaykae and Aitch that involves shots of whiskey.
"I think rap in general [has influenced me], but UK rap was the first intro for me into this, was me doing that Collaborations thing," he said of the track in a recent interview with Charlamagne Tha God. "And I've been working with UK artists since then, but [Stormzy and I have] kind of been friends for a very, very long time, but never really worked together. He remixed 'Shape of You' for me, but never really worked together on a song. Everything happens for a reason, and I feel like this [song] happened for a reason."
"Take Me Back To London" is featured on Sheeran's bop-filled new album No. 6 Collaborations Project. Watch the video for the Sir Spyro remix below.
