Rudimental and Ed Sheeran are no strangers, with the acts pairing for a remix of the "Thinking Out Loud" singer's "Bloodstream" earlier this year. Now they're together again with one of Rudimental's songs this time, "Lay It All on Me," out today.

Where "Bloodstream" was characterized by breakneck percussion, "Lay It All On Me" takes a more mellow approach, Sheeran's vocals complemented by piano and lush backing voices. "If you're hurting, lay it all on me," Sheeran commands over the drum-and-bass four-piece's pulsating production.

Enjoy it while it lasts; Sheeran has said that "Lay It All On Me" will be "the final thing" he'll debut for the foreseeable future after he finishes up his current world tour behind last year's X.

Meanwhile, Rudimental's We the Generation, their second album, drops next week, October 2.
