Despite the still relatively recent release of 2012’s Halcyon and an extensive touring schedule, Miss Goulding seems to have found enough time to record a new single, titled “Burn,” set for an August 18th release. However, she has posted it online over a month ahead of the release via SoundCloud.
Continuing along the path started by Halcyon, “Burn” incorporates a slight Nicki Minaj-type feel while keeping the Ellie Goulding in it. This song is catchy enough that listeners may find themselves singing along only two listens in. It is definitely worth at least three listens in one sitting…or seven.
While Ellie has drastically evolved from the shy, indie rock chick into an esteemed, electro-pop princess, her music has consequently progressed into a relevant, stand-alone attraction with a bright future.
If you liked Halcyon, you will love “Burn.” Similarly, if you like modern pop music, this is a song and artist to check out. Listen via the SoundCloud player below.
