Today sees the huge announcement that pop megastar Ellie Goulding has given her fans around the world brand new details of her highly/hotly anticipated upcoming fifth studio album ‘Higher Than Heaven’. Ellie’s new album is set for release on February 3rd 2023. Alongside the announcement of her new album, she has also released a brand new, ‘Let It Die’ – which you can watch below.
Speaking about the new album Ellie explains that there was definitely darkness about [the past two years] that was palpable in the studio, with everyone having gone through it differently. “I think for that reason, nobody wanted to sit and agonise over some relationship or some drama,” Ellie says. “So that’s how this album came together. [Higher Than Heaven is] about being passionately in love. But it’s a hyper form of love, almost like a drug-induced feeling. It feels almost artificial and there’s the potential for a crash.”
This month also marks the official 10-year anniversary of Ellie’s second album ‘Halcyon’ which charted at #1 in the UK and stayed in the top 100 for over two years. To mark the anniversary, Ellie released a new digital project ‘Halcyon Nights’ – Part 1 is the original album and Part 2 comprises of bonus tracks from the Halcyon era including six songs that have never been available to stream until now.
