While the title track from her last full-length continues its slow, improbable climb up the U.S. Hot 100, English singer-songwriter Ellie Goulding has revealed the release date and album artwork of her sophomore effort.
"Can finally give you all details of my next album! It is called 'Halcyon' and it is coming out on Oct 8th in the UK and Oct 9th in the US!" Goulding posted on Twitter on Monday (July 30). The 25-year-old posted a follow-up tweet with the album art: a black-and-white shot of herself with her eyes snapped shut and golden hair whipping around her face.
In addition, Goulding has announced on Facebook that "Anything Could Happen," the first track from the album to reach the masses "very soon," will be given a proper lyric video with fan-submitted photos being incorporated into the clip. The singer has posted the "Anything Could Happen" lyrics in full, and invited fans to take snapshots focusing on single words from the song using Instagram and tagging them with #EllieLyricPhotos.
