Ellie Goulding takes over The O2The tour news comes hot-on-the-heels of the announcement that Goulding will release her third studio album Delirium on 6 November on Polydor Records. It has been a whirlwind few years for the singer from Herefordshire. Since the release of her debut Lights in 2010, she has sold over 20 million records, had two no 1 albums, won two BRIT Awards and had Vevo views and streams both in excess of one billion.
This year’s "Love Me Like You Do" single, meanwhile, was a worldwide no 1 hitting the top spot in 70 countries and breaking the record for the most streamed song in one week. Some artists might be inhibited about where to go after such success but Goulding had no doubts: make everything bigger, better and braver.
