Pop songstress Ellie Goulding has revealed this week that she’s started working on her next album, which will be the follow up to 2012’s ‘Halcyon’ which she re-released in 2013 as ‘Halcyon Days’.
We’re really excited to see what Ellie has in store for us all, and by the sounds of it, so far at any rate, she’s incredibly happy with what she’s come up with.
As fans of Ellie’s will know, she has been very busy as of late performing shows across the globe, and while it was revealed that following the tour, she’d be taking a break, she’s doesn’t intent to stop working on new music.
The ‘Goodness Gracious’ beauty spoke about the new album during a Q&A session at the Bacardi Triangle music event down in Puerto Rico, and it was during the session that she confessed that the new project is proving to be an exciting one!
She said: “I’ve done a few songs that I’m really, really happy with,” however, she continued, “I kind of don’t want to give it away so soon…
“I feel like if I start talking about it now, it’ll affect the process.”
Talking next about the direction of the upcoming release, Ellie explained that while it’s something that she’s very excited about, it’s not a subject she dwells on.
She said: “I think it’s easy to do something new and crazy, but I don’t really overthink it when I get in the studio. I start a lot of stuff on guitar, and I always have someone who plays piano with me.”
Also during the Q&A, Goulding spoke about the Royal Family following her performance at the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding back in 2011, and she explained that she wasn’t nervous about it because the couple are good friends of hers.
However, she conceded: “Performing in such an incredible place it can make it quite surreal…”
Of the Royal couple, Ellie remarked: “I think they’re big fans of British music, and I feel lucky that I’m one of the people who gets to represent that at the moment.”
