Ellie Goulding Releases ‘Slow Grenade (Syn Cole Remix)’ featuring Lauv
Global superstar Ellie Goulding has released her incredible Syn Cole remix of ‘Slow Grenade’ featuring multiplatinum-selling singer and producer, Lauv (Listen below).
The epic new remix sees Estonian DJ & producer Syn Cole put his own spin on the original and reminding listeners of the long nights on the dancefloor. Syn Cole puts the pairs catchy vocals front and centre whilst adding his thumping bass and euphoric production which take the song to new heights.
Syn Cole is known for his remixes of some of the biggest songs this decade from the likes of Katy Perry, Ed Sheeran, Miley Cyrus and Charlie Puth.
‘Slow Grenade’ is taken from Goulding’s recent No. 1 selling album, Brightest Blue, which was adored by fans and critics alike. The album included a number of recent releases alongside a plethora of new songs, set in two parts, Brightest Blue (executively produced by Ellie Goulding & Joe Kearns) and EG.0 respectively. Across the two halves, Goulding enlisted a number of writers and producers to help create the finished product, including the likes of Tobias Jesso Jr., Starsmith, ILYA, serpentwithfeet, Patrick Wimberly (of Chairlift) and Jim Eliot amongst others.
Explaining her reasoning behind the double album the singer-songwriter said: “I’m fascinated by the mechanics of writing a big pop song, but it’s something different from what’s on Brightest Blue. EG.0 is a collection of songs that I've written as a somewhat of a character, where it's literally like my alter ego. I liked the idea of being able to play a really strong powerful woman, which wasn’t the case on Brightest Blue.”
Though her voice is confident and passionate on Brightest Blue, it explores her insecurities - but EG.0 is pure bombast. “They really show my craft as a writer because it ain’t easy writing those big American songs - and I’ve learned to be proud of that in a different way.”
Shortly after the release of her new album, Goulding gave fans an incredible exclusive live performance titled “The Brightest Blue Experience”. The show was a one-off exclusive pay-per-view presented by ‘Live Now,’ recorded and livestreamed from London’s iconic V&A (Victoria & Albert Museum), which saw the star perform tracks from her new album for the first time as well as some fan favorites.
March 2020 marked the 10-year anniversary of her debut album Lights, which charted at No. 1 in the UK and went on to sell over 1.4 million records globally. Goulding’s incredible career to-date has seen her celebrate two No. 1 albums, two BRIT Awards, sell over 15 million albums and 132 million singles, amass 24.1 billion streams worldwide and surpass 10 million subscribers on YouTube, amassing over 5 billion views globally.
This week saw her awarded with two BMI Awards for her recent releases ‘Hate Me’ and ‘Close To Me’.
Also a UN Environment Ambassador, Goudling is known as a passionate advocate for environmental protection for our precious planet and champion of solutions to the climate crisis. She mixes this advocacy with her work to help end homelessness, supporting The Marylebone Project and fundraising for other nationwide charities working on the frontline of the homeless crisis.
