Confirmed: Official U.S. Tracklisting for Debut Ellie Goulding Album
Yo yo! Check out this cool one-sheet promoting Ellie Goulding here in the States. I was pleasantly surprised this evening when I received an email from Universal Music Group with a digital copy of Goulding's Lights album in advance of it's March 8th U.S. release via Cherrytree/Interscope Records. AMAZING!
In related news, I also can confirm the tracklisting AND the correct track order for Goulding's U.S. debut album:
Tracklisting:Not sure if the album artwork will be different but rest assured, I'll let you know when I know. Now - let's discuss the tracklisting itself. I'm semi disappointed that other Bright Lights tracks didn't make the cut - specifically "Little Dreams," "Human," "Home" and "Believe Me." Maybe they'll show up on an iTunes bonus tracks edition or something? Here's hoping. I was also sort of hoping for a couple of COMPLETELY new tracks for the U.S. market. That being said, her album was virtually perfect as recorded so additional tracks really aren't necessary. I do think the addition of "Your Song" will be a nice introduction for Goulding here in the States, as it's a song everybody knows and loves.

All in all, I think the tracklisting is pretty solid. Expect more on the March 8th U.S. release of her album as well as upcoming North American tour dates. Remember, U.S. fans can download her EP, An Introduction to Ellie Goulding on iTunes now (HERE). Meanwhile, UK fans can expect Goulding's new single, "Lights" to be released in the coming weeks (no concrete release dates available just yet). While the video for "Lights" to leaked on the web last week, it's been swiftly taken down by Polydor. Here's hoping an official version of the video makes its way on to YouTube shortly. While the embed doesn't work anymore, check out my review of the single/video HERE.
