After scrapping her Instagram account last week, it seems Ellie Goulding has finally dropped a hint about her long-awaited new single, ‘Close To Me’.

Sharing a new image of three animated tattoos on her profile earlier today (including one of Ellie’s own triangular imprint on her wrist), a little detective work shows the other two belonging to Diplo and Rae Sremmurd’s Swae Lee.

Update: Ellie has now confirmed the song will arrive on Wednesday 24th October, and will be premiered on BBC Radio 1 as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record. Check the teaser below:
