Ellie Goulding To Release Special Edition Of Lights


13 jan. 2011, 17h12m

Ellie Goulding is only 24 and already a success in her native England. The UK has been able to enjoy her debut album Lightssince March of ’10… but now we finally have details on the long-awaited US release (and it sounds like we got the better deal!)

Coming in at #30 on the Last.fm Best of 2010 countdown ain’t too bad for the young songstress. Accumulating scrobbles from the full length record as well as the An Introduction to Ellie Goulding EP, her singles “The Writer” & “Starry Eyed” have blown up all over the globe climbing all the way up to #1 on the UK charts. She was even gracious enough to stop by our studios during the US portion of her international tour to throw down a few acoustic renditions for us, and you can watch them

Nearly a solid year down the road; March 8th American shelves will finally be graced with Goulding’s Lights Special Edition! On the disc fans of course get the entire UK release track listing PLUS the never before heard title track “Lights”, a brand new song called “Animal” and a beautiful cover of Elton John‘s “Your Song”.

She’s critically acclaimed all over the globe and her pop-centric emotive song styles have garnered her plenty of good press state-side even without the record. The New Yorker called Ellie “the future of music” and the Los Angeles Times raved, “her set seemed to cement her pop bona fides.” So keep an eye out on March 8th for Lights complements of Ellie’s new American label Cherrytree Records. Oh, and while you are at it keep track of Ellie on Facebook, Twitter, Myspace& her Official Homepage. Multi-instrumental & vocally brilliant, Ellie Goulding is one of our favorites here at Last.fm Discover & we look forward to much more from her in the near future.
