While U.S. fans are eagerly awaiting an official visit from Ellie Goulding stateside, the popular British singer is about to release "The Writer" in the U.K., which is already the fourth single from her popular debut LP.
The singer has confided in interviews that this track is the one closest to her heart. "It is the most personal and emotional song I've written yet," she told Sky. "It's about how you'd do anything and change absolutely everything about yourself if necessary, just to be noticed by this one person."
Emerging British electro-pop outfit Friends Electric put their crafty hands on "The Writer" and intensified the atmospheric quality of Ellie's original with sparkling synths, shimmering strings and a lush Ballearic groove. This beautifully crafted new version of "The Writer" perfectly fits the song's vivid melody and Ellie's mesmerizing delivery. It's like stepping into fresh morning dew on a warm summer day. Well done.
