While “Lights” is just hitting the Top 5 on the Billboard Hot 100, Ellie Goulding is preparing the release of her second studio album, Halcyon. A few weeks ago she released a promo single, a cover of Active Child’s “Hangin’ On” feat. Tinie Tempah. Then, a few days ago, she released an album preview, with snippets of a few of the new songs. She has announced the new single, “Anything Could Happen,” will be released August 21st, and the album is out October 8th. She definitely looks like she’s gotten a little more techno with this album, but she sounds absolutely fantastic on what we’ve heard so far. Discuss!
For the album preview, go to elliegoulding.com. The promo single “Hangin’ On” is available on her SoundCloud.
As a BIG fan of Ellie, I cannot wait for this new record. From the clips I have heard, it sounds nothing short of stellar, it’s got that “Ellie” sound, but sounds so fresh and pure at the same time. Very much looking forward to it. I still listen to the LIGHTS album every week and really hope she continues to see great success and her career really takes off here in the states.
Here are the song Preview for HALYCON.
Wow- I am in love with Ellie Goulding’s new single “Anything Could Happen.” The lyrics, production and music video are all very impressive. It’s cool that she would do something like this for her fans.
Maybe I underestimated her for BNA…
Here’s the official music video for Anything Could Happen: http://www.vevo.com/watch/ellie-goulding/anything-could-happen/GBUV71201285
All I have to say is…HOT DAMN! I love this music video, like severely. I think it’s incredibly well done and Ellie looks great. If this song gets big, and hopefully it does, I hope there is major recognition for the video as well. What do you guys think?
Minute and a half snippets are now on iTunes, about to go listen!
^^Amazing! Just streamed them!! This will be my fav. album this fall.
This girl is a total GEM! I adore her.
I like Halcyon overall, but I simply can’t stop listening to Atlantis. It’s very Jónsi, and I fear as it is with him, Atlantis will probably get on my nerves very quickly. But for now I enjoy it immensely.
Other standouts for me are:
Anything Could Happen, Figure 8 & I Need Your Love
Btw, why does Lights need to be included on the album again?
