Global superstar Ellie Goulding returns with the release of her new single and accompanying video for ‘Worry About Me’ featuring multi-platinum-selling artist/producer blackbear, out now on Polydor Records.
Ellie has also announced that her new album will be released on June 5, with the record’s title and further details to be revealed soon.
‘Worry About Me’ is the first new music from Ellie Goulding this year and follows on from recent releases ‘Sixteen’, ‘Close To Me’ and ‘Hate Me’ as well her recent cover of Joni Mitchell’s ‘River’ which saw Ellie claim her third UK #1 – becoming the last number one single of the decade.
Listen to ‘Worry About Me’ by Ellie Goulding on the Lucy Bronze Training Playlist on Spotify.
For the new single Goulding has teamed up with acclaimed blackbear who rose to fame in 2015 and has since gone on to release five albums in the last five years as well as write and produce for a number of incredible artists.
‘Worry About Me’ is supreme slice of R&B fuelled pop, with a pulsating bassline throughout as Ellie sings “baby you don’t gotta worry about me” before blackbear jumps onto the track with his unique flow for his verse.
Speaking about the song, Ellie explains “’Worry About Me’ is a song I wrote reminiscing about a time a guy wanted me at his convenience, just as I was getting over him.
“It is intentionally tongue in cheek because I’m not at all bitter, I just found it humorous. It was refreshing to write, in the sunshine of LA, because at the time I was writing dark songs about my state of mind in New York.”
