After announcing the track earlier in the week, Ellie Goulding has now revealed her new single ‘Close To Me‘.
Featuring Rae Sremmurd’s Swae Lee, ‘Close To Me’ also hears production from Diplo, and marks Ellie’s first piece of all-new solo music since her last solo record, ‘Delirium’. Earlier this year, the singer also shared her cover of ‘Vincent’, Don McLean’s poignant tribute to Vincent Van Gogh.
In an interview with Radio 1’s Annie Mac (who premiered the song), Goulding tells of her three-year break between releasing ‘Delirium’ in 2015 and her upcoming fourth studio album – “I just wanted to spend time with my family and see my friends a bit more. I moved to New York for a bit…. and I’ve been living a bit”.
