Although Goulding made an appearance on Silk City's "New Love" last year, she hasn't released new music as the lead artist since 2020's Brightest Blue album, but this afternoon (4 July) she announced her first single of 2022, "Easy Lover".

"Easy Lover" lands next week and will feature Big Sean, and Goulding even shared a nine-second snippet of the song on socials. She wrote, "This has been a long time coming. It's had many lives and I'm expecting it to pop off in 2032. Can't wait for you to hear it."

As well as collaborating with Silk Sonic last year, Goulding released her debut book FITTER. CALMER. STRONGER..

Ellie Goulding's "Easy Lover" single featuring Big Sean will arrive on 15 July.
