Album of the week: Ellie Goulding "Lights"

Last week we had the fabulous Marina & The Diamonds as album of the week, this week comes another fantastic female artist from the UK. 22 year old Ellie Goulding is someone we mentioned several times and finally her debut album “Lights” has been released this week in the UK and it looks like she will be number 1 in the charts on Sunday with it.

Her first singles “Under The Sheets” and the current “Starry Eyed” already showed how talented she is. She was on every important list of artists to watch out for in 2010 and won the BPI music award in the category “Critic`s Choice” last month. The album isn`t disappointing at all, with 10 great pop songs it`s only a bit short. Ellie has written all the songs, most of them with her musical partner Starsmith, who did work with Katy Perry and Paloma Faith. Ellie played¬† acoustic guitar on most on the tracks. The track “Wish I Stayed” is produced by our favourite FRANKMUSIK, who also sings backing vocals on the tune.

You can hear Ellie`s influences are diverse, from folk to pop, electro and rock. The songs are all strong and unique and grow the more you listen to them.¬† The strange thing is that you can only buy the title track of the album “Lights” on the digital iTunes version where you also get the videos for the 2 singles.

Ellie will be touring the UK big time in March and April 2010 and will be back in June 2010.

The album will be out in Germany on April, 9th.
