It’s officially been a year since Ellie Goulding released her last album Brightest Blue. Now, the star is starting to talk about what’s next for her. She teased an upcoming album that will see her go back to her electronic dance-pop roots.
Ellie’s New Record Will be an “Electronic Pop, Dance Thing From Outer Space”
In a recent interview with The Joe Wicks Podcast, Goulding revealed she’s ready to return to her electronic music roots. “I spent a lot of time by myself, quite introspective. I had a backlog of things I wanted to write about,” Goulding explained. “It was quite deep and emotional. And this album is the opposite of that. I found this dream team of writers, who just for some reason, without even having to talk about it, were all on the same page. Together we’re on this mission just to have fun. We just want to make music for people to dance to and forget about everything in the past year. “It is like a dance record. It’s electronic pop, a dance thing from outer space.”
Brightest Blue marked Ellie’s first full-length album in five years. This year, she teased a new era when she teamed up with Silk City, Mark Ronson, and Diplo on “New Love,” but she hasn’t released a solo single yet. “There definitely were certain things that set me back,” she added. “I felt like I was in a place where the songs were not reaching, they weren’t strong enough in my opinion. So I waited until I was properly ready and emotionally equipped.”
She admitted, “I also had technical stuff, like a change of management, I moved back to London and I got married. So lots of things happened in that time and it’s only really now that I feel like I’m completely ready to embrace that life again.”
