Watch Asking Alexandria cover Ed Sheeran’s Perfect

Asking Alexandria

Earlier this week, Asking Alexandria dropped into the SiriusXM studios and performed a couple of songs.

Along with an acoustic version of their track Into The Fire, they also gave their take on Ed Sheeran’s Perfect.

Introducing the song, frontman Danny Worsnop says: “This is a song we wrote that Ed Sheeran stole. It’s called Perfect.”

Guitarist Ben Bruce adds: “We called it Perfect first” while Worsnop says: “I know, it was written about my reflection.”

Asking Alexandria launched their self-titled fifth studio album in December vi Sumerian Records – their first album since Worsnop rejoined the band in 2016 after initially leaving the previous year.

They’re about to embark on a North American tour with Black Veil Brides and will then return to Europe later this year for a run of festival dates.
