Ellie Goulding is set to go back to her electronic dance-pop roots

A year after releasing her fourth studio album "Brighter Days," Ellie Goulding has revealed she has already started working on her next record. During a recent appearance on "The Joe Wicks Podcast," the "On My Mind" singer described the forthcoming project as "a dance thing from outer space," per Music News.

Her latest release saw Goulding gear away from her original sound. However, the BRIT Award winner insists she will be going back to her electronic dance-pop roots for the next album. "I spent a lot of time by myself, quite introspective," Goulding said, adding, "I had a backlog of things I wanted to write about. It was quite deep and emotional. And this album is the opposite of that."

"I found this dream team of writers, who just for some reason, without even having to talk about it, were all on the same page. Together we're on this mission just to have fun," the mom to son Arthur Ever Winter Jopling continued. "We just want to make music for people to dance to and forget about everything in the past year." Goulding hasn't given any hints as to when fans can expect a new album. However, we can only assume they will be happy to hear a new project is on its way so soon.
