On July 30 English singer-songwriter Ellie Goulding announced she will be releasing her sophomore studio album, “Halcyon” on October 9, 2012 via Cherrytree/ Interscope Records. She also released the album artwork, and announced that a lyric video for the first single “Anything Could Happen” will premiere on August 13 via her VEVO channel.
In an issued press release Goulding said, “This album for me is a journey from dark into light from confusion to understanding. I didn’t set out to write a break-up record but I think it became one.”
All the tracks on the album were written and co-produced by Ellie Goulding and the majority was recorded in a converted barn in Ellie’s hometown in the Hay Valley, West England with producer Jim Elliot (Kylie / Ladyhawke).
On July 10 Goulding released a music video for her cover of Active Child’s song “Hanging On” which you can watch here. Her upcoming single “Anything Could Happen” is the first new original music from Goulding since she released her debut album, “Lights”.
