The 'A Team' singer says his team-up with the country pop singer worked out well for them both.

Ed Sheeran has described Taylor Swift as being a "good friend" after the two go together to record some songs in the studio earlier this year.

The 'A Team' singer's collaboration with Taylor is expected to feature on her next album, the follow-up to 'Speak Now', and Ed says the two clicked immediately when they started writing music together.

"Well, I don't really write so much with other artists," Ed revealed to MTV NEws. "Like the Taylor session, when we got together and wrote was the second time I've ever gotten with another singer or songwriter and written a song with them.

"We're very much alike musically and it worked out well, I think," he explained. "So it wasn't actually too hard of an adjustment.

The 'Lego House' star went on to described Taylor as being "really nice" and "really cool" while praising her for being good company to work with.

He added: "She's just a good friend. It's a pleasure hanging out with her."

Ed Sheeran is currently working on his second studio album, which he recently said it "structurally there" already, and will headline the iTunes Festival 2012 at the Roundhouse in Camden on 2nd September.
