It’s True – Ellie Goulding’s New Album is ‘Brightest Blue’

It’s True – Ellie Goulding’s New Album is ‘Brightest Blue’

Anything can happen – and it did! Ellie Goulding just announced that her 4th studio album, entitled Brightest Blue, will be released on July 17th. It’s a double-sided album, meaning it has two parts: Side A, “Brightest Blue” and Side B, “EG.0”. We are so ready to dive into it – let’s discuss!

The Revealed Track List

The tracklist for Brightest Blue is as follows:

SIDE A – “Brightest Blue”
Start (ft. serpentwithfeet)
How Deep Is Too Deep
Love I’m Given
New Heights
Ode To Myself
Wine Drunk
Brightest Blue

SIDE B – “EG.0”
Worry About Me (feat. blackbear)
Slow Grenade (feat. Lauv)
Close To Me (with Diplo) (feat. Swae Lee)
Hate Me (with Juice WRLD)

Goulding says that Side A “reflects [her] vulnerability… it acknowledges a complex world where relationships still dictate our happiness and heartbreak and can still be the most painful thing in the world, no matter how enlightened you are.” We love an emotionally-insightful queen!

Meanwhile, Side B “encapsulates [her] confident, brave and fearless side and features all [her] recent collaborations.” Her closing track, ‘Hate Me’, features the late Juice WRLD, who tragically died last year at the age of 21. It was the low-key chill banger of last summer, and it’s a cool method to commemorate the rapper, by using the song as the album’s finale.

Her New Brightest Blue Single, ‘Power’

Her latest single is ‘Power’, complete with a full music video shot entirely during the lockdown. It snaps and surges as Ellie’s layered vocals dance over a beat that’s lovingly reminiscent of her Halcyon days. Over a cool bass line, an intermittent choir of Goulding’s echoing voice exclaims, “THE POWER!”. Her video, a documentation of private, sensual escapades, perfectly conveys the electric tone of the track – striking light against darkness.

[…] Ellie Goulding and Lauv collabing for ‘Slow Grenade’ is even better than we ever imagined. The pop song is powerful, just like a grenade. With each of their distinct vocals blending together smoothly, it’s so pleasing to hear. So not only is it a total bop we can dance to, but we can sit down and just appreciate how good they sound. The song is also relatable, as we find ourselves wanting things that might not be the best for us. Overall, this song is the perfect collab we needed and we already know we at Fresh Music Friday… Read more »
