ELLIE GOULDING — I KNOW YOU CARE

This may or may not make you want to give up on life, so consider this your warning. Ellie Goulding’s beautiful ‘I Know You Care’ is now a music video that features clips from Dakota Fanning’s new movie ‘Now Is Good,’ the story of a young women who’s diagnosed with a terminal illness while falling in love for the first time. Basically, it has all the ingredients to cause anxiety, depression, loneliness, and a loss of faith in mankind. But, at least it’s happening while Ellie Goulding is nurturing your wounds via a simple piano ballad and angelic voice. Be careful, this song may be on repeat for a while.

ELLIE GOULDING — HIGH FOR THIS

Late night posting is the best kind of posting. Ellie Goulding just released a cover of The Weeknd’s ‘High for This’ on soundcloud, produced by the talented Xaphoon Jones. It’s nice to hear something new from Ellie; she’s done plenty of covers that I love and this is just another one to add to her repertoire. I also enjoy seeing how she adds her own voice to this R&B hit. Free download too — siiiickk.
