"Bloodstream" is a song recorded by English singer-songwriter, Ed Sheeran for his second studio album, × (2014). It was written by Sheeran, Rudimental, and Snow Patrol members – Johnny McDaid and Gary Lightbody. Production was handled by Rick Rubin.

The song was released as an "instant grat" digital download to the iTunes Store on 17 June 2014, serving as the fourth of seven promotional singles from ×. It entered the UK Singles Chart at number 81 and rose to number 60.

In December 2014, "Bloodstream" was remixed by Rudimental. This version of the song was released on 29 March 2015 as a joint single between Sheeran and Rudimental, serving as the fourth single from × and the lead single from Rudimental's second studio album, We the Generation (2015). This remix peaked at number 2 on the UK Singles Chart.

"Bloodstream" was written by Sheeran, Rudimental, and Snow Patrol members - Johnny McDaid and Gary Lightbody, and produced by Rick Rubin. The song is about Sheeran taking MDMA during a wedding celebration in Ibiza. He claims that during the experience he "fell in love with a beanbag" and that " felt anxiety, felt love, felt warm, felt a bit weird". Sheeran made a live PA to perform the song during Rudimental's set at Glastonbury on 27 June 2014.

A music video featuring actor Ray Liotta was released on 23 March 2015. The video was directed by Emil Nava.

"Emil Nava has delivered this Youtube Music Award video for Ed Sheeran & Rudimental's track Bloodstream, exploring the psychology of a wealthy, disgruntled ex-rock star who's dissatisfaction with the emptiness of his middle-age life - in contrast to the success and happiness of his glory days - has reached a breaking point.

In this respect, the casting of Ray Liotta is an inspired move. He transmits the growing crisis of a complex character driven to the brink by blotting out his loneliness with booze, girls, more booze - and riding his horse indoors." (Cat Velez, Promonews)
