Published May 27, 2020For her first new record since 2015, U.K. pop vocalist Ellie Goulding has announced plans to released Brightest Blue, an LP that features both her vulnerability and her "confident, brave and fearless" side. The record arrives on July 17 via Interscope.
The album comprises two conceptual sides. The first "acknowledges a complex world where relationships still dictate our happiness and heartbreak and can still be the most painful thing in the world, no matter how enlightened you are," according to a press release. "The tracks also symbolize growing up and becoming a woman."
The second side — the "brave and fearless" side — features contributions by blackbear, Lauv, Diplo, Swae Lee and the late Juice WRLD.
Brightest Blue will mark the singer's follow-up to 2015's Delirium, which featured Goulding's notable hit, "Love Me Like You Do."
