Ellie Goulding: ‘Hanging On’ Featuring Tinie Tempah!

Check out the premiere of Ellie Goulding‘s brand-new track “Hanging On” featuring Tinie Tempah! The cover of Active Child’s “Hanging On” serves as a buzz single from her anticipated sophomore album due out later this year. The 25-year-old English singer-songwriter may finally be ruling the U.S. with her single “Lights” but it’s been almost two years since we received any new material. “Hanging On” is our first glimpse of Ellie‘s direction for the new record and it’s already clear she’s headed for a much darker and emotional soundscape. The track alternates between tender electronica and massive bright explosions of drums in its infectious chorus, adding even more sophistication and depth to the original sound found on Bright Lights. I can’t wait for more! What do you guys think?

    She’s a sweet little thing.. Almost like a disney carachter. But she knows what she’s doing. This is magical (again)! Glad that she finally got the succes she deserves in the US. I normally love Tinie Tempah but Ellie’s so amazin that he kind of destroys this song.

    Pure perfection.
    Lights/Bright Lights is one of my favorites albuns ever. I still have all the tracks in my Ipod since its release. Can’t wait for more music from Ms. Goulding.

    yeah… tinie tempah sort of ruins the song but I’m excited to hear she’s sticking to her magical sounds!

    I am getting a bit of a florence and the machine vibe from this with her heavy falsetto and sounds like harp in the back(?).

    I really like it.
