With a pulsating bassline juxtaposed with the 80s tinged synths, new single ‘Like A Saviour’ sees Ellie once again deliver a high energy pop smash. The accompanying video, directed by Joe Connor with choreography by Daniel Alwell, features Ellie and a cohort of backing dancers stranded in a desert – a landscape they must battle against as the song reaches its epic crescendo finish.
Ellie took to social media last month to announce the new single but also share the new release date for her forthcoming album ‘Higher Than Heaven’ which is now set for release this March 24th. Ellie explained “We’ve had some exciting opportunities appear behind the scenes which I cannot wait to share with you in due course. In the meantime as a thank you for your patience”
The forthcoming album has seen Ellie enlist some of pop music’s finest to craft the album with her, Greg Kurstin (Sia, Maggie Rogers, Elton John), Jessie Shatkin (Charli XCX, Years & Years), Koz (Sam Ryder, Madonna, Dua Lipa) and Andrew Wells (Halsey, Yungblud), with the finished record seeing Ellie put her own spin on modern pop music. “Higher Than Heaven” is jam packed with infectious hits that see Ellie’s signature vocals take centre stage whilst the production is pop music at its finest with stomping basslines, soaring synths and euphoric melodies.
Speaking about the new album Ellie explains “There was definitely a darkness about [the past two years] that was palpable in the studio, with everyone having gone through it differently. I think for that reason, nobody wanted to sit and agonise over some relationship or some drama. So that’s how this album came together. [Higher Than Heaven is] about being passionately in love. But it’s a hyper form of love, almost like a drug induced feeling. It feels almost artificial and there’s the potential for a crash.”
Next week will see Ellie Goulding return to the stage for two intimate shows at London’s iconic KOKO in Camden where she will perform two sold out shows on 7th and 8th Feb – performing a combination of her previous hits alongside recent singles and some exclusive new music from the forthcoming album.
