Ellie Goulding revealed the album title and cover art to ‘Halcyon’ earlier this week and just days after breaking the big news, she kept her promise and released an album snippet with an accompanying video.
‘Halcyon’ stays true to Goulding’s signature style with electro beats and high-pitched vocals. It also includes quite a few ballads and while she described it as a “break-up record,” what we’ve heard so far is the complete opposite. The album is expected to include collaborations with Calvin Harris, Swedish House Mafia and Skrillex.
The first single from ‘Halcyon’ will be ‘Anything Can Happen,’ which will premiere on September 30th and she is offering her fans the opportunity to be a part of the lyric video by posting Instagram photos of the lyrics to the song.
‘Halcyon’ will be out on Oct 8th in the U.K. and Oct 9th in the U.S.
