Ellie Goulding’s new album Delirium is a more mainstream approach than her last albums that had more of the dance and rave sounds. It seems that some of the tracks are personal as well (hint, hint: “On My Mind”).
Delirium starts with a gazing intro which may make you feel relaxed at first but once the tension starts to build up and fade into “Aftertaste”, get ready to hear another side of the British singer. Goulding is leaving behind the EDM pop and going for a straight pop sound. However, we still get a small taste of dance pop in first two tracks, such as “Something In The Way You Move”.
We get a very different Ellie Goulding on Delirium and for her different can go either way. Some wonder if this album is even her. The closest you get to Goulding’s early days is maybe the track “Keep On Dancin’” where she roots back to her dance pop sound. Not mention her summer hit “Love Me Like You Do” from the movie Fifty Shades Of Grey, fits perfectly on the album.
When Ellie Goulding released her first single off of Delirium “On My Mind”, we automatically thought this album would get more personal, since the song was rumored to be a response to Ed Sheeran’s “Don’t”, but Goulding cleared up the rumors saying it wasn’t true. After the track “On My Mind” we get into the more mainstream songs and perhaps more personal as well.
This is a very transition album for Goulding, but it’s good thing. Goulding didn’t completely change her sound as many thought would happen, but she proved us wrong. She does experiment, but what artist doesn’t?
What you think? Is the a different Ellie Goulding? Leave a comment and let us know!
