Goulding sings about being the queen of her mistakes on a new song titled “Kingdom.”
The soaring mid-tempo tune was regrettably left off 2015’s Delirium, but fortunately it mysteriously surfaced onto the Internet today, and it’s a legitimate pop anthem.
Goulding can do it all – she recently performed a seriously beautiful rendition of “Fields Of Gold” then flipped the script with an acoustic cover of The Innocence Mission’s “Lakes Of Canada,” but in this latest tune, Goulding returns to her electro-thumping roots.
Soak it up, because the British beauty told fans earlier this year she has no plans to release new material any time soon. “I’m not writing new stuff,” she said. “I’m not sure when I’ll release a new album. It might not even be next year. I need time off for my own head. My plan is to have a month off in August and do more of my charity stuff and then next year I need to live a bit. Who knows? My situation has changed.”
Goulding also recently opened up about her depression. She recently broke up with her boyfriend of two years, McFly bassist Dougie Poynter. “People think I’m invincible but these past few weeks have been tough,” she said earlier this year. “When you’re in the public eye, it seems like you’re able to deal with stuff better than anyone else, which is not remotely true. I’m not in a relationship any more and that’s been hard. Having a break will be a good thing for me and my head.” The two reportedly called it quits due to their hectic schedules and his desire to grow his career as an actor in the States.
“I know he feels the same. But I think for me and anybody else going through the same thing, it’s really important to get to know yourself, be happy with your own company and like yourself. The only way I can do that is by spending time with myself. The last couple of weeks have been quite strange and quite different for me because I’ve been by myself so much, but I think it’s healthy to do. Everyone knows that breaking up with someone is a really terrible thing. It’s hard, complicated and it’s never going to be easy. I can’t think of any of my friends or family who have been through a break-up and actually thought, ‘That was all right.'”
