Ellie Goulding has shared brand new single ‘Sixteen’, penned by the platinum selling singer-songwriter herself alongside Raye and FRED.
The track produced by Ian Kirkpatrick, FRED and Mike Wise follows on from her recently released stripped down ballad ‘Flux’ and is a throwback to her days as a rebellious teenager. The lyric video features photos from Ellie’s friends when they were 16.
She commented, “I’m so excited to share “Sixteen” with everyone. That age was such a pivotal year for me in many ways and this song is so close to my heart. It takes me back to the reckless days of being a teenager and I hope it reminds us all about the innocence of youth.”
