Tomorrow Ellie Goulding’s second album, Halcyon, is released in the United States. It has been available for pre order for some time, and it has been well received by fans and critics alike. It is a complex follow up to her wildly successful first album Lights. The interesting thing about Goulding is that it took almost two years for her first album to produce a top ten hit in the United States. The song Lights finally hit the iTunes top ten in July of THIS SUMMER. Talk about a long wait. She is known to be a folk singer with a funky pop backing. This new album moves her farther away from the folk side and more to the serious pop star.
