Ed Sheeran transforms cult classic metal rock songs in to cheesy romantic ballads in the latest clip shared by “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” which aired on Monday night, June 1. The British pop star was featured on the show promoting a fake album called “Ed Sheeran Sings Heavy Metal”. Fallon sported a wig and turtleneck as he introduces the record:
“Enjoy the morbid and disturbing themes of heavy metal music, but wish that it had a more cheerful, pleasant sound.” “Pop music’s cherub-faced troubadour sings 25 of the darkest, most skull-crushing songs ever written.”
Sheeran continued the skit while performing acoustic versions of Iron Maiden’s “Run to the Hills” and Limp Bizkit’s “Break Stuff”. He also did a rendition of Ty Dolla $ign’s “Paranoid” which pleased the live audience. Sheeran also performed his lasts single “Photograph” while visiting the late night show host.
