What does every successful English singer-songwriter need in their life? Taylor Swift as their BFF, of course. (Who wouldn’t?)

Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift’s friend-scapades know no bounds, with the two pals routinely crashing each other’s concerts for surprise performances, hanging out at awards shows together, Swift making him a Drake needlepoint — you know, typical best friend stuff.

Sheeran’s new album, x,comes out June 23.
