It’s a bright blue day for Ellie Goulding, the British pop star whose long-awaited fourth studio set finally arrives.
Brightest Blue is split in two halves, and features an a-team of guests including Juice WRLD, Lauv, blackbear, Diplo, Swae Lee and writer-and-producer assists from Tobias Jesso Jr., Starsmith, ILYA, serpentwithfeet, Chairlift’s Patrick Wimberly and Jim Eliot.
Outside of music, Goulding is a tireless philanthropist and advocate. In November 2017 she was awarded the United Nation’s New Voices Award in recognition of her activism, and she was appointed a Goodwill Ambassador for UN Environment.
Goulding exploded out the gate in 2010 after topping the BBC Sound of… poll and scoring The BRITs Critics’ Choice award in quick succession.
So far, she has two No. 1 singles and album to her credit in her homeland.
Brightest Blue carries the previously-released tracks “Worry About Me,” “Power,” “Slow Grenade” and 2019 tunes “Close To Me” and “Hate Me.”
