Ellie’s new album Brightest Blue has been applauded by critics across the globe with The Guardian stating it’s “a triumph of heart and ambition” and “her best yet”, whilst Variety claim the album is her “best and most complete work, a lovelorn mess of emotions atop a mass of vibrant soundscapes.” The album is presented in two parts, the first 13 tracks are the thoughtful contemplations that make up Brightest Blue (executively produced by Ellie Goulding & Joe Kearns) and the second part, EG.0, consists of huge pop bangers with collaborators including Lauv, Swae Lee and the late JUICE WRLD. Across the two halves Ellie enlisted a number of writers and producers to help create the finished product, including the likes of Tobias Jesso Jr., Starsmith, ILYA, serpentwithfeet, Patrick Wimberly (of Chairlift) and Jim Eliot amongst others.
Explaining her reasoning behind the double album Ellie says “I’m fascinated by the mechanics of writing a big pop song, but it’s something different from what’s on Brightest Blue. EG.0 is a collection of songs that I've written as a somewhat of a character, where it's literally like my alter ego. I liked the idea of being able to play a really strong powerful woman, which wasn’t the case on Brightest Blue.” Though her voice is confident and passionate on Brightest Blue, it explores her insecurities - but EG.0 is pure bombast. “They really show my craft as a writer because it ain’t easy writing those big American songs - and I’ve learned to be proud of that in a different way.”
