Summer is waning, but for Ellie Goulding it seems like it could go on forever. The 26-year-old singer left her native UK and traveled to North America as the opening act for much of Bruno MarsMoonshine Jungle tour. Of course that’s when she wasn’t playing to capacity crowds at the world’s most prestigious music festivals, including Chicago’s Lollapalooza.

We caught up with Goulding to talk about the expanded reissue of her 2012 album, Halcyon, as Halcyon Days, now bolstered with 10 additional new songs and set for release next Tuesday, August 27.

“It’s a little happier than everything I’ve done before,” Goulding said of the new songs featured on Halcyon Days. “It’s kind of the more uplifting songs. It embraces my love of electronic music a bit more. I’ve got collaborations on there with DJ Fresh, Greg Kurstin, Nate Ruess from fun.

“Basically, after my album came out, it’s been a weird time for me,” she continued. “I feel like now I’m so much deeper into Halcyon that I just wanted to expand it. I wanted it to last longer, because I’m not done with this record yet. For anyone else, it might be a time to move on and make another record, but I don’t think it’s the end yet.”
