I don't know whether she would be good or not, she isn't the type of x factor artiist, she is very much her own artist and singer-songwriter. I don't know we'll see. As for new music she finishes touring stateside in May and I think will take a break so sometime in 2015.

I'm no fan of the X Factor so I would be pleased if she turned it down. It's a big commitment and I know that she said in her interview with Michael Parkinson the other night that she wants to take a break at some point. Did anyone else see that? It was called Masterclass on Sky Arts.

Listening to the tracks from Halcyon Days. I don't know how I feel about them. "Burn" is far from her best, in my opinion. I love Halcyon as a stand-alone album.

She has worked solidly since October 2012. I think to he wants to and deserves to take some serious time off.

As for Halcyon Days I always said it should have been a stand alone. The quality is not up to the standard of Halcyon and tarnishes the entire era. But it did wonders in revitalising her overall career so it did some good. hopefully album number 3 no rel-releases or label interventions ;p.

So glad you mentioned that, forgot all about it. Just checked and it's repeated 10am Tuesday morning, so thanks

Ellie talks about her new album

Looking forward to new material. I hope that it's more like "Anything Could Happen" and "Guns & Horses" instead of "Burn". I wasn't keen on the latter at all.

It's not too much of a surprise one of the issues with Halcyon was the huge gap and the album being so sonically different to her debut.

As a fan no more EDM, what made Halcyon so special was it was a bold move that pushed her way past her debut and delivered on her insurmountable potential. She needs a balance to consolidate her career and push her further but one that also doesn't fall short of her artistic merits.
