The fourth album is the upcoming as-of-yet to be named is the fourth studio album by English recording artist Ellie Goulding expected to be due out in late 2017 or 2018.


In March 2016, Goulding announced that she was to take a break and stated that she was not writing new material and was not sure when she would release a new album, adding that it might not be released next year.[1][2]

In April, 2016 Ellie told Daily Star Online

"I honestly have no idea when I will be working on my next album, I have been in the studio for other bits of work but not for an album as such. I’ve done a few collaborations and there are a few things in the pipeline, but to be honest I am snowed in with my tour at the moment. If I release the album it will be with songs I record in the next few months." [3]

In May 20, Naughty Boy firstly announced "Should've Been Me" at the Ivor Novello Awards in London on the 20th of May, 2016 and he exclusively told BANG Showbiz:

"My next single is with Ellie Goulding - that's an exclusive! It's called 'Should've Been Me' - I have not told this to anyone before." [4]

It is unknown as to why Ellie Goulding was removed from the track. Possibilities of this issue include the unsuitability of the song for Ellie or Goulding may have rejected in working with Naughty Boy.

On 19 August 2016 she released the song "Still Falling For You" for the soundtrack to the film Bridget Jones's Baby and its music video premiered on 25 August 2016.[5][6]

On 6 January, 2017, Goulding had announced that she has already started on making new music and possibly her new album. It may however also be a re-issue of "Delirium" however it is unlikely as the Target edition already has an abundance of tracks. [7]

The singer has been working in the studio with some of her usual collaborators including Klas Åhlund, Jim Eliot or Carl Falk. In 2017, Goulding has also worked with producer Bloodpop and British singer/songwriter Raye.

Later in April, 2017, an unreleased song: "President" was leaked.


The collaborations followed may or may not be for the album.

Many have speculated that there was going to be a new track with Calvin Harris and another male artist. In April, 2016, Ellie asked BBC Radio 1 to ask Harris about the new song. Harris stated that

"It's impossible to say, isn't it? She did record a vocal for me but there's no hook at the moment, erm, to that track. So it's kind of hard to say. I think she needs to get back in in order to finish it. I can't just conjure something up. I'm not trying to do a Kylie [Minogue] and Jason [Donovan] Especially For You duet." [8][9]

On September 13 2016 Harris asked his fans to guess the feature for his song "My Way" and many speculated that it would feature Goulding. It was later revealed that the song only had Harris on it. [10] Later, Harris stated that there was a new collaboration with a female artist and a male artist and fans theorize that it would feature Goulding and John Newman.
