After years of pounding the pavement to tour and record new music, Ed Sheeran is off the clock and enjoying a hard-earned vacation. The break has taken him around the world, including a jaunt to Japan, where he ate fermented beans and sea snails.

Even though he’s on hiatus, Sheeran made time for his friend Foy Vance who was scheduled to perform at the Latitude Festival in Suffolk, England. During Vance’s set, Sheeran joined him onstage to lend a hand with guitar and vocals on “Guiding Light.”

Vance is signed to Sheeran’s Gingerbread Records. See some footage from the special appearance here:
