Ellie Goulding’s new album is slightly delayed - entertainment news

Ellie Goulding has delayed the release of her fifth studio album.

The pop star was due to release the follow-up to 2020’s ‘Brightest Blue’, ‘Higher Than Heaven’, on February 3, however fans will now have to wait until March 24.

The ‘Lights’ singer explained that she was forced to delay the LP for a bit due to “some exciting opportunities”, which she will “share” with fans “in due course”.

However, he teased the new single ‘Like a Saviour’, which is “coming soon”, and follows ‘Easy Lover’, ‘All by Myself’ and ‘Let It Die’.

He began the Instagram post: “To my amazing fans: I’m sorry to announce that we’re delaying the release of Higher Than Heaven until March 24th. I know you’ve all been very patient with me, but we’ve had some exciting behind-the-scenes opportunities pop up that haven’t I can’t wait to share with you in due course. In the meantime, as a thank you for your patience, I’m excited to confirm that my new single is called Like A Saviour. “I shot the video and it’s one of my favorite videos I’ve ever made. And as a little thank you for putting up with me, I wanted to give you a first look. We also filmed something really exciting this past weekend that ‘I’ll be coming around the album release. More on that very soon…”

Revealing the new release date, he continued: “Thank you all so much for sticking with me. I can’t wait to finally share this record with you all on March 24th and I hope you love it as much as I do.”

Ellie signed the post: “Sending you love and warmth as always, Ellie x.”

The 36-year-old star ditched ballads on her next album.

Ellie’s hit love songs include ‘Still Falling For You’ from the ‘Bridget Jones’s Baby’ soundtrack and ‘Love Me Like You Do’ from the erotic romantic comedy ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’.

However, the ‘Burn’ hitmaker noticed a change in people’s musical tastes post-pandemic, with most preferring upbeat dance tunes, so fans can look forward to just that ‘Higher Than Heaven’.

She said: “Nobody seems to like ballads right now after the pandemic.

“People want to make music to move. That’s basically what my new album sounds like.”

The ‘I Need Your Love’ hitmaker recently said of her return to her electronic dance-pop roots: “I spent a lot of time alone, quite introspective. I had a backlog of things that I wanted to write about.

“It was pretty deep and emotional. And this album is the complete opposite. I found this dream team of writers, who for some reason, without even having to talk about it, were all on the same page. Together we’re on this mission just to have fun. We just want to make music so people dance and forget about everything that happened last year.”
