Ellie Goulding on highly anticipated upcoming album
Ellie Goulding has revealed that her highly anticipated upcoming album is in two parts and is "classically influenced".
The 33-year-old pop star has described her follow-up to 2015's Delirium, which is due for release in June 2020, as a "big soundscape and one big film".
On the new record, Goulding also draws on her multi-instrumentalist talent as she plays piano, guitar, and bass on the tracks.
The English singer-songwriter and musician recently kicked off her new era with the release of the single 'Worry About Me', which features blackbear.
Speaking on the UK radio show Heart Breakfast with Jamie Theakston and Amanda Holden this morning [March 16], she teased:
"Well, the album kind of comes in two parts.
"I haven’t actually told anyone this, it’s quite nice to talk about it. The first side is something written entirely by me which was fun and I wrote most of it in New York when I was living there a few years back.
"I play the guitar and I play the bass and piano and then I’m singing a lot of vocals. It’s very classically influenced because I love classical music.
"There’s a lot going on, it’s a big soundscape and one big film.
"The second half, is my kind of alter ego of songs."
Goulding also revealed recently how she came to work with blackbear after admiring his work - which includes credits for Justin Bieber, Nick Jonas and Machine Gun Kelly.
Speaking to Capital Breakfast, she said: "Well I kind of just slightly fell in love with him, with a couple of his songs and just asked him. It’s quite simple really, I just asked him to be on a song with me and he said, ‘Yeah, okay.'"
"It was just so perfect this verse that he did. He absolutely nailed it I think."
This year marks a decade since Goulding emerged onto the music scene with her debut album, Lights.
