After teasing it on socials, Ellie Goulding has officially announced her fifth album Higher Than Heaven, and has shared new single "Let It Die" to accompany the news.

"Let It Die" is Goulding's first outing since linking with Alok and Sigala on "All By Myself" earlier this month, and follows her July Big Sean collaboration "Easy Lover". The new song lands with a Carlota Guerrero-directed video.

Higher Than Heaven will follow Goulding's 2020 album Brightest Blue, and saw her work with Greg Kurstin (Sia, Maggie Rogers, Elton John), Jessie Shatkin (Charli XCX, Years & Years), Koz (Sam Ryder, Madonna, Dua Lipa) and Andrew Wells (Halsey, Yungblud).

"There was definitely a darkness about [the past two years] that was palpable in the studio, with everyone having gone through it differently," Goulding says. "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."

"Let It Die" is out now. Ellie Goulding's Higher Than Heaven album will be released on 3 February 2023, and is available to pre-order now.
