So Ellie has announced the name of her new single? No other details atm but i'm hoping for something amazing to kick start the new era.

Judging by the tattoos in the (terrible) artwork, this will be a collaboration with Diplo and Swae Lee.

Oh :(

Although Diplo was partly responsible for Silk City's Electricity and Swae Lee actually sounds good on Sunflower so there's still hope this will be good.

Right? :(

Basically everything Swae Lee sings sounds good and Diplo has been on a roll lately, so this should be a cute basic bop at worst.

Sherlock is it you? :lol:
Sounds somehow like a fun combination, curious what she has in store musically. Felt like the first time she was away for quite a bit from the spotlight since her debut.

I never liked her music, but I really enjoyed her last album so all in all I would be interested in new music. But please, no unnecessary featuring :roll: :-?

I am certainly ready for some new Ellie, it has been a long time coming! Just hope it will be more in line with her debut or second album.

On one side i'm VERY excited for new Ellie as it's been ages and she's still one of my favorite artists... on another side, i'm not really sure what to think about it if it's really a collaboration with Swae Lee and Diplo. Not that they'd be bad, i just wish she'd go with a solo song at first.

Maybe she's also going a similar route as with "Halcyon". So a first taste à la "Hanging On" and then the real lead single later on.

I'd rather Ellie go back to a (relatively) leftfield electropop, like ''Goodness Gracious''

I think i've just listened to the next UK #1 single. It's got such a catchy sing-along style chorus. It's the perfect balance between pure pop and r'n'b.

Ah, this is not what I was hoping for. It is quite nice, but at the same time very generic. It's certainly no Anything Could Happen or Dead In The Water.

Ellie Goulding is a crowd pleaser but I find everything she does a bit hipsterette.

Agreed! I think it still has her own unique sound (did she co-write this?) thanks to the plucked strings and uncommon chord progression. But it is way too repetitive for me, and a distinct melody like that can be problematic when it appears throughout the track.

First thoughts: Very disappointing. I even skipped it after a minute or so :( Will have to take more time for it i guess as i usually adore Ellie.
