Ellie Goulding releases Double-Album
While everyone is dealing with the pandemic by way of adhering to safeguard protocols, creatives and artists deal with it the best way they know, and that is to continue and ramp up on productivity, one that both caters to the fans and in the hopes of giving a semblance of the normal that we lost and hope to find again.
One such artist is Ellie Goulding.
She just released a Two-part album that collectively is called Brightest Blue.
The first part of the album contains 13 tracks that are more insightful and more introspective and produced by Ellie and Joe Keams. In contrast, the second part of the album called EG. O, are more of the party and upbeat tracks that we’ve come to associate Ellie with and these tracks were produced with the help of other artists like Lauv, Swae Lee, and the late Juice Wrld.
“I’m fascinated by the mechanics of writing a big pop song, but it’s something different from what’s on Brightest Blue. EG.0 is a collection of songs that I’ve written as a somewhat of a character, where it’s literally like my alter ego. I liked the idea of being able to play a really strong powerful woman, which wasn’t the case on Brightest Blue. They really show my craft as a writer because it ain’t easy writing those big American songs – and I’ve learned to be proud of that in a different way.”
In support of the album release, Goulding also announced “The Brightest Blue Experience,” a one-off pay-per-view exclusive performance presented by “Live Now” recorded and livestreamed from London’s iconic V & A (Victoria & Albert Museum) on August 26, 2020.
The showcase will see Ellie perform tracks from her new album for the first time as well as some fan favorites. Ellie will be accompanied by a special ensemble of live musicians and a very special guest to be announced in the coming weeks.
Fans can apply for the presale via https://www.elliegoulding.com/ from Friday July 17 at 8am until Monday, July 20th at 8am.
March 2020 marked the 10-year anniversary of Ellie’s debut album Lights. Ellie’s incredible career to date has seen her receive two GRAMMY Award nominations, a Golden Globe nomination, two BRIT Awards, sales of 18 million albums and over 140 million singles, and 23 billion streams worldwide.
