This was one of three songs on x
produced by Rick Rubin (the other two were "Don't
" and "Bloodstream
.") Sheeran told Digital Spy
he didn't set out to work with the legendary producer. "It was a weird thing because I wasn't intending for any of that to happen," he said. "Rick Rubin came to a show, we hung out, ended up in the studio and then did a lot of work together. It was literally a very random meeting - I went around for a cup of tea after the show!"
