British singer-songwriter Ellie Goulding is enjoying her first major taste of U.S. success as her single “Lights” hits #6 on this week’s Billboard Hot 100 more than a year after its stateside release. She’s also hard at work on a new album with some of the most in-demand producers in the world, including Calvin Harris, members of Swedish House Mafia and with her boyfriend Skrillex.
Now, we’re getting a first taste of what Goulding might be cooking up in the studio with the song “Hanging On” featuring Tinie Tempah, which she uploaded today (July 10) to her SoundCloud.
“Here’s the beginning of my new journey. Enjoy and share responsibly,” she wrote on Twitter.
Shortly after Goulding tweeted the link, her SoundCloud site briefly crashed because servers were overwhelmed by the amount of traffic they received. “Think you guys crashed the site,” she tweeted, “bare (sic) with us.”
Lucky for us, everything is back up and running!
Whether “Hanging On” will appear on her new album remains to be seen, but it’s certainly only stoked anticipation for the effort. “Hanging On” is pure power pop!
