Ed Sheeran's recording of the song was used in an episode in season 7 of the television series Sons of Anarchy.[1] Sheeran was an avid fan of the music for the series and mentioned it in a tweet. When the show's creator (Kurt Sutter) read the tweet, he proposed that Sheeran record a song for one of the episodes, as Sheeran was touring with Foy Vance at the time, and as one of Vance's songs (Make It Rain) started with the lyrics "When the sins of my father / Weigh down in my soul", Sheeran thought it was appropriate for the series and with Vance's approval, Sheeran recorded the song to be used in the episode "Red Rose" broadcast on 2 December 2014.
