The amazing Ellie Goulding is coming back, and at the sounds of it, she’s back with a vengeance! On her upcoming record dubbed Halcyon, Ellie is set to collaborate with her beau Skrillex and heavyweight DJ, Calvin Harris, to produce a record rife with electronica.
To circle attention around Halcyon‘s upcoming release, Ellie recently debuted the opening single, “Anything Could Happen,” to the sound of swelling melodies and a fairly catchy hook. Despite this, the lyrics on the single leave much to be desired as the verses are sprinkled clichés and the chorus puts meaning to the word, “repetitive.” Regardless, the commanding bridge proves to be a solid fixture in the track, and when the music is cut and she belts, “I know it’s gonna be,” you really start to see the track shine.
While initially we were a little concerned as the amount of electronica that would be incorporated in Halcyon, Ellie happily looks to have calmed our woes with this gorgeous new single.
