Ellie Goulding pulled a fast one on all of her fans yesterday (July 4) on Twitter.
The singer, who has been teasing and promising new music for months now, took to Twitter to share a video of her and her team working on some “new music.”
Goulding is seen singing into a microphone in a recording studio, giving some simple vocals before taking a break. When the British pop star asks for the music to be turned up, her production team tells her to turn the knob on her monitor.
The song that then plays on the monitor isn’t actually anything Goulding is currently working on, but the song “Three Lions (Football’s Coming Home)” by comedians David Baddiel and Frank Skinner with the band the Lightning Seeds.
The song was written for the Euro Cup in 1996 and has become somewhat of an anthem for every win England has had in any major tournament, including the World Cup. Goulding, of course, used the social media platform to express her English pride and excitement over the team’s big win on Tuesday (July 3) against Colombia, moving them to the quarterfinal of the tournament.
