Ellie Goulding: 'My new release is a break-up album'

Songstress Ellie Goulding revealed details about her brand new album earlier today (July 30) and admitted it is something of a "break-up" record.

Talking about the forthcoming release, which is titled 'Halcyon', the 'Starry Eyed' hitmaker explained that although she didn't set out to write about love it crept into the tracks and helped shape her new music:

"This album for me is a journey from dark into light, from confusion to understanding. I didn't set out to write a break-up record but I think it became one."

"I'm so incredibly proud of this record, I really can't wait for you all to hear it. Going to post a little teaser later this week I think."

She returned to social networking site Twitter earlier this afternoon and thanked her fans for the support and anticipation they have shown towards the record so far:

"As ever overwhelmed by your positive responses... I just can't wait to share this with you and be seeing you on tour again..... JOY xxxx"




She's set to unveil 'Halcyon' on October 8 and you can watch her video for 'Lights' below:
