Today sees platinum selling, multi-award winning singer/songwriter Ellie Goulding team up with Grammy-winning producer Diplo and rapper/singer (one half of Rae Sremmurd) Swae Lee for their new single ‘Close To Me’ – out now on Polydor.
The new single ‘Close To Me’ is an addictive earworm that pairs Goulding’s distinctive vocals with verses from Swae Lee, brought together by Diplo’s inimitable production. It’s been over three years since Ellie and Diplo teamed up for ‘Powerful’, taken from Major Lazer’s ‘Peace Is The Mission’ album.
The collaborative new release is the first new music from Ellie Goulding since her 2015 album ‘Delirium’ which saw her global hit single ‘Love Me Like You Do’ viewed over 1.8 billion times. Ellie’s incredible career to date has seen her take home two BRIT Awards, sell over 14 million albums and 102 million singles, amass 13 billion streams worldwide and garner 14 million Instagram followers. Diplo is a multi-platinum artist, DJ and producer who has already delivered two huge global hits this year with LSD (his collaboration with Labrinth and Sia) and Silk City (with Mark Ronson).
