Zara Larsson Explains What It's Like Working With Ed Sheeran

Ever wonder what it’s like to hang out with Ed Sheeran? Zara Larsson is spilling!

The “Lush Life” singer worked with the “Shape of You” hitmaker on her song “Don’t Let Me Be Yours” from her album So Good (listen here).

Zara Larsson album out today,” Ed shared on Instagram back in March. “We wrote this song together and I love it. Check it out X.”

Snow Patrol‘s Johnny McDaid and musician Steve Mac joined them in the creative process.

“[Johnny] just basically told me, ‘Well, tomorrow when we have the session Ed might swing by,’” Zara told the Recording Academy. “We were just jamming and … I was like, ‘Whatever, he’s not going to show up, like, why would he do that?’ And then he showed up! On time actually, and he was just the nicest guy.”

“Don’t Let Me Be Yours” was not originally going to be on the album, but Zara fought for it because of how much she and Ed clicked in the studio.

“That’s how I feel collabs should be, you know?” she explained. “You should work with each other in the studio and it should just come easy and that’s what happened.”

Zara even performs a cover of his hit “Shape Of You” during her concerts.

“I’m still starting off, and I think my biggest song to this day is definitely ‘Never Forget You’ here in America, so I think I want that element of, ‘Oh, you know this one,’ to keep [the audience] interested and keep them singing along,” she shared.
