Ellie Goulding Officially Announces 'Halcyon Days'

Last night, I reviewed Ellie Goulding's upcoming single, entitled "Burn," and had speculated a new album from Ellie Goulding. Apparently I spoke a little too soon, because today Goulding announced a repackaged version of Halcyon via Facebook.

The release will be titled Halcyon Days, and will be a deluxe re-release that includes the original album plus seven new songs, including "Burn." According to her Facebook post, the new songs will also include collaborations with Madeon, DJ Fresh, BURNS, and fun. front-man Nate Ruess. 

I'm fine with all of these collaborations except the last one, but mainly because I haven't heard of DJ Fresh or BURNS, so I can't really judge them yet. However, Nate Ruess' voice is absolutely unbearable and I don't want him fogging up a new song from Goulding. He needs to go back to singing "Some Nights" and leave my pop stars alone.

Goulding is following plenty of her peers by releasing a repackaged version of her album, which is a concept that has become very popular in the past few years and has been done by artists like Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, and Lana Del Rey. Many fans complain that they have to re-purchase the older album to get the new songs, but is it really that big of an inconvenience? I actually think it's kind of cool to see all of the different releases in my album collection. If you're really that hot and bothered by the extra disc, just buy the new songs digitally.

No other information has been disclosed about Halcyon Days as of yet, except for a release date of August 26, 2013. I'm going to be sure to pre-order the album as soon as I can, and will definitely be reviewing it here for everyone to see.
