Oh sheeeet I'm so excited to announce my first run of intimate (distanced 🥴) shows for 2021... Pre-order any format of the album from my official store by 5pm BST on Tuesday, June 30 for exclusive pre-sale access 🤙🏼 You'll receive your pre-sale code by 8pm BST on Tuesday, June 30 and the pre-sale starts on Wednesday, July 1 . The feeling I get from my new album is that people get to immerse themselves into a world of hope despite everything being so bleak, you have to tear through your own demons to get to the other side but also realising that you can free yourself from toxic relationships! Looking forward to finally being able to see you all and be with you once again. 💙x

The concert tour will follow the release of Ellie Goulding's recent album of the same name: "Brightest Blue". 

The album is divided in two parts, "Brightest Blue" and "EG.0". Speaking about her latest release, Ms Goulding said the first half: "Reflects 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.”

Ms Goulding said the second half of the album: “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.
