Katy Perry will be featured on “a country-tinged mid-tempo track titled ‘Who You Love’” while Frank Ocean will lend his voice on “Wildfire.”
“It was a true collaboration. Now we have this cool 5 1/2 minute song [that] became the title track of the album. We’re really proud of it,” Tony Kanal says of the track.
Sheeran had previously mentioned that he would perform with a “big rock band” at the Olympics, inspiring rumors that he’d play with One Direction, for whom Sheeran wrote the song “Moments.”
Bassist Ted Dwayne said that the band’s hectic tour schedule over recent years took a toll on their personal lives, but added inspiration to the album.
