I swear anyone who knows me knows how much I SWOON Ellie Goulding. I copped the album on the first day of release, I attended her greatest ever show -the 2010 iTunes festival at Roundhouse Camden thanks to my mate Holly- and I attended a next one at HMV Hammersmith that november. Other than having one of my fave fusion albums -I call Lights fusion because she and the producer Starsmith managed to fuse traditional folk song with acoustic foundations and contemporary futuristic electronica. Yes I love Ellie’s voice, not just her looks, I love the tone of voice, the way she blends her vocals to sound like a swooners dream and choice of songs -this cover being perfect. I admire The Weeknd but I haven’t really delved beneath the first release [House of Balloons] as What You Need was my fave song, I feel that this cover may just be the thing that sets me on my journey…
Big up Xaphoon Jones from Chiddy bang on production because if this cover is an indication of what the sophomore album will be like then I’m getting PRETTY PRETTY GASSSSED!!! Yo! Ellie, I’ve been waiting two years for you to drop something and if Xaphoon is producing the bulk of it I’m getting GAAASSSSSEDDD because you’ve got a versatile voice and I’d love to hear you showcase it on something Hip Hop/R&B-ish.
