Elena Jane “Ellie” Goulding. After what seems a long break in the UK charts, it’s rumored that in October 2012 you Goulding’s will be blessed with a Shiny new album ‘Halcyon’.
In an interview recently at the ‘Elle Women in Music Event’ she claims, her new album will have a different sound to her debut Album “Lights” and her Ex Boyfriend (Skrillex) has no influence on it at all.(1).
Her birth place Kington near Hereford will always be home to Ellie. However it seems the US is now her 2nd home. Her single ‘Lights’ went to number 5 on the Billboard 100, in March 2011.
It seems now there will be no end to what’s next? Check this mix by Skrillex “Summit”-(FT Ellie Goulding)
I caught up with Ellie in 2010 and wished her well with the new album, and did she enjoy Beach Break? “Thank you. I’ve really had an awesome time here at Beach Break, the crowd was amazing. The weather has been great. It’s such a nice location to play, Like a home to my roots kind of gig”(2).
