Ellie Goulding: 'New album Halcyon is more pop than Lights'

By

The 'Anything Could Happen' singer said that gaining experience in the music industry has led her to explore different sounds, the results of which are evident in her sophomore release.

"I've moved on quite a bit since the first album, because I've discovered so much; I've learned a lot more and I've grown up a lot more," Goulding explained to MTV News.

"I've gained more influences and different influences and people have influenced it; I suppose just circumstances. It's a bit more tribal and anthemic; a bit more piano and vocal than anything.

"The last album was very electronic, but it was tied in with my voice; this one, to me, is way more of a pop record."

Halcyon will be released on October 7 in the UK and one day later in the US.

Goulding recently said that she feels like a new artist again.
