Ellie Goulding does not have the spinning peppermint bra of Katy Perry or the tabloid-baiting love life of Rihanna. But she consistently puts out good music without any need for bells and whistles. (The fact that she performed for Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding reception should not be held against her.) Earlier this week Goulding put out a new single, Hanging On, featuring Tinie Tempah, and yesterday she dropped the music video.
In other news, Ellie Goulding’s single Lights also hit the top five this week, following a new high of sales by her album of the same name. The Guardian teases that Goulding is at work on her second album with Calvin Harris and Swedish House Mafia.
In the mean time, she’s offering a download of Hanging On for free.
