Ellie Goulding has announced her fifth studio album, Higher Than Heaven, and given fans a taste of the record with a new single called "Let It Die."
Out on February 3, 2023, Higher Than Heaven follows her 2020 album Brightest Blue. Speaking about the upcoming album, Goulding said: “There was definitely a darkness about [the past two years] that was palpable in the studio, with everyone having gone through it differently. I think for that reason, nobody wanted to sit and agonise over some relationship or some drama. So that’s how this album came together.”
She continued: “[‘Higher Than Heaven’ is] about being passionately in love. But it’s a hyper form of love, almost like a drug induced feeling. It feels almost artificial and there’s the potential for a crash.”

According to a press release, the album will contain “stomping basslines, soaring synths and euphoric melodies,” with contributions from producers like Greg Kurstin, Jesse Shatkin (Charli XCX, Years & Years), Koz (Madonna, Dua Lipa), and Andrew Wells (Halsey, Yungblud). A tracklist has not been revealed yet.
The new single comes after the release of the song "Easy Lover" and Goulding’s collaborative single with Alok and Sigala, "All By Myself." The "Let It Die" music video sees the singer hanging with a horde of dancers in a museum-esque studio space.
