Ellie Goulding's sophomore album, "Halcyon" has finally been released. Critics applaud the singer for her refreshing new album which is "louder and darker than her debut," according to UK's The Sun.
The 25-year-old singer experiments with her trilling vocals and her signature electronic orchestra beats. Goulding is also experimenting with her fashion sense. She admits that the blonde sweet girl that was presented to the world during her debut album was a not the real her. She revealed to the British publication that she was always a rebel and that she put on the girl-next-door persona because that's what the public wanted her to be.
The Ellie Goulding that has now become a superstar no longer wears girly frocks and curled blonde tresses. The real Goulding stands out with pink hair on a partially shaved head. The singer's style has become more influential with her bad-girl punk rocker threads. "I guess I was made out to be like a really good role model," Goulding confesses. "Sensible, girly, flowery and blonde - but that wasn't me."
"I've changed the way I look a bit but not intentionally. I've cut my hair. I've got a bit of pink in it and lately I've become a bit monochrome, wearing a lot of black and white."
"There's definitely something switched in me in that I don't like to wear bright colors.
"I instinctively dress a bit tougher because I've spent a lot of time in the US and I realized there was a certain image projected of me here."
"I've always been an absolute rebel. When I was in my teen years I had piercings and wore all black."
"I smoked and drank and did what all my mates did around me. I was never a 'sensible one'."
"And my lyrics have always been dark. It's just that this time, the music is more raw around the edges and varies from song to song."
Goulding's first single off the album is "Anything Could Happen." The heartfelt pop song is intended to "make people go out and propose to their girlfriend and do that holiday they never ended up doing," she told MTV. "I hope it will provoke positivity as opposed to making people really sad."
The music video for the single formally debuts Goulding's latest fashion style. In the video, Goulding and her love interest suffer a major car crash but end up alive on a beach. Goulding appears to be an angel singing along a beach filled with silver bubbles. The singer explained that the music video is about fate. "The video is about myself and I suppose ... [my] love interest, you might say, [or] soul mate and we end up having an accident," she told MTV. "But did we? There you go, that's the thing. We end up having a car accident then we end up coming back to life."
Goulding didn't want "Halcyon" to be a breakup album but it ended up being that way. Many songs were inspired by her breakup with Radio 1 DJ Greg James last year. The singer calls the album a "journey from dark to light." She says that "it's personal to me, very personal."
