According to Billboard, when The Simpsons producer Mike Sully heard Sheeran would love to make a guest appearance on the show, they were able to get him to record his lines over the phone while he was in England.

"We had a perfect part for him," Al Jean, the show's executive producer said. "So we said, 'Oh, great, we'll have him do this!' And we recorded him over the phone from England."

Speaking on Ed Sheeran's exciting guest appearance on The Simpsons, Jean was also able to share a small insight of the upcoming romance.
