Interview: Ellie Goulding on Drake, Her Choice Girl Power Anthem & the Challenges of Being a Female Performer
Hours before Ellie Goulding rocked the stage with Katy Perry for the We Can Survive concert at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles last night (October 23), the British singer sat down with Radio.com to talk about the biggest challenge she’s faced as a female performer, who she’s listening to right now and how her voice ended up on Drake’s “Pound Cake/Paris Morton Music 2” off his latest album, Nothing Was The Same.
Though she just released a deluxe edition of her 2012 album, Halcyon Days, Goulding also talking about her upcoming recording plans, but says it might be awhile.
“I feel like it’s going to come together so much more when I find the right producer,” Goulding said. “But my instincts are telling me I’m not ready to start properly. I’ve been so horrendously busy with Halcyon and I’m still very committed to it and attached to it and I feel like I’m not quite ready to move on to something, a new chapter.”
