Ellie Goulding Reveals The Cover Of New Single, “Sixteen”

The UK pop star strips it right back on haunting, new single, 'Flux.'

EDIT: The post has been updated with a streaming link for Ellie’s nostalgic, feel-good bop.

Ellie Goulding’s 4th LP is coming together nicely. The Brit has a hit on her hands with Diplo-produced banger “Close To Me” (top 30 and climbing on the Billboard Hot 100) and showcased her versatility on the stripped-back “Flux.” The third cut from the album will arrive tomorrow (April 12). It’s called “Sixteen” and has a rather special cover. “I asked my friends to send photos from when they were 16 [for] this single’s artwork,” she revealed on Twitter. “It was so much fun putting this together and it makes it so special to share it with you guys.”

In fact, if you look closely enough, you might spot some famous faces. Included in the collage are snaps of Katy Perry and RAYE. It’s a cute idea and hints at a nostalgic bop (hopefully) about that most awkward and wonderful age. And if that’s not enough Ellie to get you through the month, the prolific pop star also features on the star-studded Game Of Thrones soundtrack. It’s still unclear if she has contributed a new song, but the chances are very good. See the cover of “Sixteen” below.
