Ellie Goulding has found to itself: it must no longer even chase (well, at least not permanently) because she is finally reached in their careers and their lives to a point where the music exactly the this life, with reality covers and really shows where it just is - after she had previously experienced FIVE years an amendments to the other and thereby was barely past come. Their new album "Delirium" marks a major step in this development because it creates on an entirely new perspective, a new foundation for the next chapter of her career as a singer. On the new song "Do not Panic" she already brings it very well to the point when she sings: "I've got big dreams, so do not overcomplicate it." By this time has worked with renowned co-authors and producers like Max Martin, Greg Kurstin, Ryan Tedder, Klas Ahlund and Guy Lawrence (Disclosure), they did so Ellie, "Like with this album a conscious decision with regards to orientation: I wanted to get to the next level."
What the above-mentioned "Big Dreams" are assigned a cursory look at the numbers: Ellie Goulding had two # 1 albums in UK in a row, it has the same won two BRIT Awards, has a total of over 20 million albums sold, the number of their views at Vevo is in the billions, and only this year was their single "Love Me Like You Do" around the world No. 1 on the charts. Incredible numbers, and yet thinks Ellie far from it, a gear shift down, on the contrary: "If there were a kind of fog was who has wrapped the first two albums, then was probably the fact that I just was not knew exactly who or what I actually be want. Each pop musician who does not perceive himself as incredibly casual and cool, automatically swings as a hint of uncertainty: If you're just extremely cool, you want to be a big star, and if you're a huge star, you want to be cool. With me was it perhaps a little so that I could not say exactly how my people perceive Ever; I had the feeling that I very different things were rumored and imputed. Now, however, I'm finally through with this whole issue. It may sound crazy, but a part of me really considered this album as an experiment - as an attempt to put an outsize pop album. And I just feel that now is the perfect time for it. "
Three years after the release of "Halcyon", happened on "Delirium" exactly what she means when she speaks of finally "airing fog" this. The predecessor was created in a particularly vulnerable stage of their lives, and she says that she only now really understands how personal and important this album was for them: "Yes, that was a dark portion, but how dark I was honest said clear only when I started to write the new album and take, because I was so much happier here, "she says. "On 'Halcyon' I definitely wanted to bring these chasms expressed, it was a sort of cry for help. And when I sing the songs of the album now live, I sometimes think: 'Wow, that's pretty dark and profound.' I mean, after all, the album ends with a title of 'In The Water Dead' is - what a rather clear statement is. "work on "Delirium" however, you have just made fun: "There are so many passages in these new songs that friends call me immediately: 'Oh, that are typical of you, Ellie!', By which they mean that I am as honest once again that it hurts already. For example, when I sing 'Everything you do I over analyze', I suppose everything is always so closely examined, this is such a place, which is probably really typical for me. On the other hand, there are also lines, such as 'I need a love to celebrate.' What is a beautiful, completely positive thing, if you say that, and quite different from 'I need a love that I can tear apart', as I probably would have written it earlier. "
One thing there is to do fOr Ellie, namely establishing the final tracklist, and she admits openly that she now pushes this task for some time in front of him: "I just can not bring themselves to the new album to crop so," she says. "That would be as if you look at a finger cut would. And I've taken up enough songs for three albums! And for each one of them I have everything taken out of me. rumrennen and call Part of me would love to, 'I'm a creative genius', but frankly I'm now at a point where I really overwhelm these songs. I need a much cooler head, if I am to make that choice. "
The mixture of self-confidence and self-irony that resonates in these statements, pointing to a further amendments to Ellies life back, because the whole attitude to her career is now a completely different than it was a few years ago: "I feel much accepted, and that is a feeling that I earlier did not. I think that a number of reasons: The music industry has changed so much that it is no longer possible quasi to be an artist who simply experienced just a hype - you either have the huge airplay hit or you have it just do not , Today it is much harder to be a really unknown underground artist or an absolute mega-star, unless you have any celebrity Background. My career began in a time when I could just barely allow me to establish myself. And I still would not classify as 'big name': I stand on a raised area - but I do not think I would have achieved nothing. I see myself then even more in between. What has changed in me, however, is this: If my earlier someone had made the proposal to play for a big ceremony or a big TV show, then I would have been really nervous and would have said: 'I do not really know. .. 'Well, not anymore. Today I'm ready for it. And I'm there I even owe yourself to tackle the whole way. I do not need more to apologize - and what general I should apologize "?
On "Delirium", the Ellie in London, in her home in Herefordshire (where they also with their ancestral colleagues Jim Elliot from "Halcyon" -VorgÄnger worked), has written and recorded in Sweden and Los Angeles, you can hear quite their trademark out - her exceptional voice, the unsparing openness and the tendency to self-exploration in the texts, the electronic beats, which it had done to her as a teenager - just rotate this time on even more. Even before it was aware that the work on "Delirium" insanely great will would, she says, because the chemistry between her and the musicians involved have just clicked immediately, "I have Max always considered this legend, but then I heard from various quarters that the working environment should be extremely relaxed with him , all very relaxed and amicable. And yet I was at first still pretty excited - after all the guy does not work with each together. When we fOr the recording of 'Love Me Like You Do' we met for the first time, he was even more permeable and cooler than it had been described to me: funny, friendly, but no less grounded. He's really passionate about it, and that is simply times extremely contagious. Actually we wanted to make just a few sessions, a few first attempts, but after the first shots he had said: 'Why do not we still hang a whole week off?' And a little later it was said: 'Just come back by whenever you feel then. 'We have never taken a solid plan. I wrote to one of his friends in Sweden One of the songs, and having heard him, he immediately called and said, 'Hey, the track is unbelievably good, we must continue to work.' Everything happened as if by magic - as if the non-plan been actual plan would, if that makes sense. And besides that, he has remained so incredibly modest, although it is responsible for songs that have changed the lives of countless people. He is really an exception, because not everyone is like this: Sometimes you meet people who do not seem to be a little grateful; perhaps they are talented unbelievable, but absolute assholes here. It was really great to work in this environment, the Max has since done for me. People like him make just very special songs; there is not a single throwaway idea here. "
Another like-minded was Greg Kurstin: "The time is just a treasure of a nerd," says Ellie. "And he's so incredibly intuitive in the matter. He sees an immediately know what kind of mood you are currently in, and so does the work with him so perfect. With it, one must not say much because he knows immediately what is going on. "
If you listen to the results of these recording sessions, one also understands why it Ellie to emphasize so difficult, this or that song from the album: songs like "Devotion", "On My Mind", "Do not Panic", "Nobody But U" or "codes" are all incredibly catchy statements by an artist, which clearly has the reins in his hand and never so confidently sounded like here. "Army", however, is likely to soon be one of the absolute milestones of her career: By directs our attention to her best friend Hannah says Ellie of how two lovebirds, can not be a crisis overcoming smash them. At the same time is "Army" one of several songs on "Delirium" in which Ellies biggest brand - the grandiose overlaying layered vocal tracks - clearly plays the leading role. "Yes, I know," she laughs, "this Abba-harmonies. When we made the recording, we even said, 'Oh God, this is typical Abba!' But clearly, there are just times the best pop songs of the world. ? And even to refer to it, how cool is please "Your plan is now also live implement the multi-layered and complex arrangements of new songs on stage:" I feel like backing vocals for even by a real chorus replace - or at least by a whole mass of singers. These new pieces so have wild and weird vocal arrangements that I have to make it easy. "
As for her own voice, has Ellie finally learned how carefully they must deal with it, and she knows what fOr wear just can thus bring a great tour with them: "I truly protect them, I drink a lot of tea, I inhale to keep my vocal chords in shape. They are just so incredibly precious ... I have no idea where they came from or to whom I owe her, but of course I realize that I have to protect them from bad influences. I wanted even be carried out my nose surgery inside because I could never really breathe well through my nose. However, yoga is then always: "And now just breathe through the nose", and then I'm sitting there with my mouth open and wheeze around. Only I'm just concerned about how that could in the future affect my voice. "
Although it is now visibly more relaxed and more rests in itself, it falls Ellie still not off easily, completely, "At Christmas I once completely freely taken me a few weeks, and then here and there only a week. But I've never taken since it all started a really long time out. "However, even if it makes you free for a few days, the cameras seem to now be able to track every step:" Of course there's people at which is much worse, but it's still a strange feeling to Ever deal with it to have. I want to now not lie on the beach and think about have, if I should move my stomach now, or whether my tan looks so good. Because of course, it may happen that afterwards sees such snapshots and thinking, 'man, I look evil!' As it is so that I never had the plan to look like a supermodel or a mega-babe: I was just only with my friends at the beach and wanted to have fun! "
"Really unsettle can me but nothing more," she says further, "because I now just know myself too well. I accept myself even more, because I have become simply more confident in what I'm doing. Such trivialities so bother me, not great. Earlier, at the very beginning, I was painfully shy; you can see that even when the images see Staring from the early days: My Posen, my clothes ... some things which I find now really extremely embarrassed. I have not then simply felt comfortable in my skin, and that was perfectly obvious -. At least for me "
One reason so Ellie, is certainly the fact that they "now not even gone to the BRIT School" is "or from a wealthy family" comes, "where you will be supported by the parents. The place from which I come, really was not the best and I have still managed to this point here. Previously my roots were embarrassed, but that's over now. On the contrary, I'm very open about and talk about it, because that is ultimately what has helped me to cover all the way up here. I think that even now pretty cool, and I also want to inspire other people with it. "
