Fresh from the announcement of her highly anticipated fifth studio album Higher Than Heaven, Ellie Goulding is returning to Dublin.
The English pop star has announced details of her UK and EU Higher Than Heaven tour, which opens with a show in Dublin’s 3Olympia Theatre on 16th October 2023.
Last month, fans were given an exclusive preview of the new album when Goulding returned to the stage for two sold out intimate shows at London’s iconic KOKO in Camden.
Higher Than Heaven is due for release this April 7th and comes fresh of the back of new single ‘By the End of the Night’ and ‘Miracle’ - her recent collaboration with Calvin Harris, has peaked at No.2 on the UK Official Chart and continues to grow.
The forthcoming album has seen the 36-year-old enlist some of pop music’s finest to craft the album with her, Greg Kurstin (Sia, Maggie Rogers, Elton John), Jessie Shatkin (Charli XCX, Years & Years), Koz (Sam Ryder, Madonna, Dua Lipa) and Andrew Wells (Halsey, Yungblud), with the finished record seeing Ellie put her own spin on modern pop music.
Speaking about the new album Ellie explains "There was definitely a darkness about [the past two years] that was palpable in the studio, with everyone having gone through it differently. I think for that reason, nobody wanted to sit and agonise over some relationship or some drama. So that's how this album came together. [Higher Than Heaven is] about being passionately in love. But it's a hyper form of love, almost like a drug induced feeling. It feels almost artificial and there's the potential for a crash."
To date Ellie has celebrated 10 platinum singles, three No.1 albums, two BRIT Awards, a GRAMMY Award nomination and a Golden Globe nomination. She has sold over 27 million albums and 218 million singles, amass 43 billion streams worldwide. Ellie is also one of the most streamed female artists on Spotify with over 8 billion streams. With over 50 million followers combined on her social platforms, she also earned YouTube’s Diamond Award with 10 million subscribers on her YouTube channel and over 6.8 billion views globally.
In 2017, Goulding was awarded the UN’s New Voices Award, and in recognition of her wider activism became a goodwill ambassador for UN Environment. Earlier this year, Goulding also became a TIME100 Impact Award winner and shortly after, announced her ambassadorship with the WWF.
