Both Sheeran and Blunt spent some time together during Sheeran’s year-long hiatus. The two came together for Blunt’s song “Make Me Better,” which he released on the same day Sheeran released his latest album Divide (March 3). Blunt was also a witness to Sheeran’s freak accident where, according to Blunt, the “Castle On A Hill” artist cut his face with a sword.
