Having returned with the album lead single "Power" last Friday (22 May), Goulding has today announced her new double-sided album. Brightest Blue is Goulding's first album in five years, after 2015's Delirium.

The new LP will also feature Goulding's previous singles "Worry About Me" featuring blackbear, and Juice WRLD collaboration "Hate Me". Both tracks will feature on Side B, aka EG.0, of her new album.

On the first half of her new album, Goulding explains it "eflects my vulnerability… it acknowledges a complex world where relationships still dictate our happiness and heartbreak and can still be the most painful thing in the world, no matter how enlightened you are. The tracks also symbolise growing up and becoming a woman."

She adds of that the second half "encapsulates my confident, brave and fearless side and features all my recent collaborations. I often find myself writing about my thoughts and emotions in a way that I know will be catchy and memorable. I will always seek to use my voice in ways that no one would ever expect and look to collaborate with the least likely, exciting and eclectic group of other artists."
