Ellie Goulding’s Latest ‘Delirium’ Cut “Don’t Panic” Produced By “Hello” Co-writer


Ellie Goulding remains calm in “Don’t Panic.”

Goulding’s promotional efforts are persistent. She gave fans a treat over the weekend, premiering yet another track off her upcoming Delirium record ahead of its debut on Nov. 6. The song is titled “Don’t Panic” and sees production from Greg Kurstin, who crafted “Burn” off Goulding’s 2013 album Halcyon Days, and most recently co-wrote and produced Adele’s “Hello.”

The tranquil tune can’t hold a candle to Adele’s record-breaking ballad, but nothing in recent weeks will. Instead, it highlights Goulding’s breathy vocals as she sings, “Our lives are playing out like the movies / Doesn’t mean it’s falling apart / Don’t panic.”

The song itself is probably our least favorite Delirium release thus far, but aligns nicely with her other tracks. Those include “On My Mind,” “Something In The Way You Move,” “Lost And Found” and her other recent premiere, “Army.” It’s not overly complicated, but we imagine it serves as a promotional release versus an actual single, and we’re OK with that.

Goulding also dropped by The X Factor UK to perform “On My Mind”:
