Ellie Goulding displays her talent as she made a hit album from an experiment she did on pop music.

Delirium is Goulding’s third studio album. The album is a shift from her other art forms: folk music and electronic dance music to the world of pop. According to Ellie, she made this move in order to move her music to the next level. Now, this is an artist whose first two albums topped the charts. So the question was what does she exactly mean by the next level? She saw the album as a form of challenge to see if she could make a great pop album. This is really evident from the fact that the album contains about 25 tracks and play time is for more than an hour. She made a lot of songs and most of them sounded a lot like the hits songs of other artists but better. Next level could be one of two things: it could either be domination of the charts and the music market like no one has ever done before or it could be the creation of a new sound, a sound that will send waves all around the world and not just a particular state. To an extent, after the release of the album. We can all agree that Ellie Goulding has indeed moved to the next level. The songs that she created are quite exceptional, so much so that one of the tracks “Love Me Like You Do" was used as a soundtrack for the movie Fifty Shades Of Grey. The thing that made this album so exceptional goes beyond the lyrics. It is the fact that the songs will probably cease to become hits if they are sung on the lips of anyone else.

About

Delirium is the third studio album by English singer and songwriter Ellie Goulding, released on 6 November 2015 by Polydor Records.

The album spawned three singles: "On My Mind", "Army" and "Something in the Way You Move".
