Listen to Ellie Goulding's unreleased "Halcyon" track, "You, My Everything."
Ellie Goulding Stans will be happy to know that while they're waiting for their electro-pop Queen to release a new disc, they can bide their time (or party down, either one) with an unreleased track from Halcyon's studio sessions, titled "You, My Everything." And you know what that means, right? Today is officially the first day of a new holiday we're calling "Summer Hanukkah." Or "Summer Christmas." Or just a nice reprieve from this hot-ass summer.
Listen to Ellie Goulding's "You, My Everything" after the jump
Premiering in an episode of the English teen drama "Skins," the Jim Eliot-produced track features twinkling, layered synths, and the "I Need Your Love" singer's ethereal pipes rising above the noise as she chants: "You were my backbone when/ My body ached with weariness." Then, as the hook rolls around, the song bursts into a high-energy, '80s-tinged dance tune that could've come directly from any Jane Fonda workout video. But maybe that's just us. But if anyone wants to come over for some in-home Pilates led by yours truly and soundtracked by Ellie's new record, lemme know.
