I'm looking forward to it! The shows in June will be the first chance for your fans here who are under eighteen, to get to see you live. Do you have a message for them, ahead of the tour? Just that, I'm so happy that they're able to see a show and I'm really excited to see them.

Interview: Ellie Goulding on her upcoming 2014 New Zealand 'Halcyon Days' arena tour!
I have a real mix of young and older fans, so it's important to me that everyone gets to see the show. I'm really happy about that. After having toured the songs on your 'Halcyon' album for over a year now, have any of them changed in meaning for you in retrospect? I think 'retrospect' is the word, really - because I'm able to perform the songs with a difference now, in that when I wrote them obviously there was a lot of emotional stuff going on.
When I wrote 'Halcyon' I'd come out of a weird break-up and I was feeling there was all kinds of shit going on, like loneliness and feeling a bit lost, and now when I sing them I'm with the comfort of my fans and my band and people around me, and I can sing them with a bit more of an air of positivity and hopefulness than I ever did.
Even when I sing songs about my Dad and songs about my family and that kind of stuff, it's more re-enactments than anything, because obviously to keep having the same emotion is too intense. So I perform those sings as a re-enactment now; it's a better feeling, it's happier. Do you feel any closer to reaching your Halcyon Days now - like calmness and peacefulness somewhere, someday - than you did when you were first writing and recording the songs?
Yeah, I'm starting to feel it now.

Like the last few months I've gone through quite a few changes and have been getting more and more peaceful within myself. I don't ever know if the Halcyon Days really come - it's one of those things that you're always moving towards but even if you don't get there, you strive to get there.
I feel like I'm in a good place at the moment. Even the smallest changes, like I stopped eating meat four months ago and I've been doing different kinds of exercise like Yoga and stuff like that, little changes have made me feel a bit more at peace I think. Are the new songs on 'Halcyon Days' representative of the sound you want for your next album?
No, I think the next album is going to be different again. I have so many things in mind.Ellie Goulding - Burn
Weirdly, things like Drake's new record is having a really big influence on me, and I don't know what that means right now but I've been listening to some really different stuff. Kind of a combination between house and garage and hip-hop, so I'm not really sure I think I'm starting to understand and form an idea of what my album is going to sound like I think I'm getting there.

You must be pleased that so many rappers have been sampling your songs! I know, it's great. I think it's a sign! What was it like co-writing 'Goodness Gracious' with Nate Ruess from fun.? I love Nate, he's just so much fun, I love hanging out with him. In Australia we first met and we hung out loads, and it turned out we were big fans of each other's writing.
Sadly, we didn't get to write the song in the same room which was a shame, but he wrote his bit and I wrote my bit and I sent it back to him to see what he thought and thank goodness he liked it, because that would have been embarrassing if he didn't.
Excluding your cover of 'Your Song', 'Burn' was your very first single to be released that wasn't a song that was specifically written for you originally. What was it about the song that made you really want it to be a single for you? I just loved it. He [Ryan Tedder] sent me a bunch of stuff and then he sent me this song, and as you know I never usually do songs that aren't mine, but I knew that I could work with that song, I knew that it was special.
I don't know whether it's instinctive or whatever, but that song I just connected with even though I hadn't initially written it. I changed it up and sang it and it just became my song!
And then it went Number One! It was really interesting seeing you all standing in a line on-stage together, all dressed really differently and from different musical backgrounds. Ignoring superficial things, what do you think are the most important fundamental principles of female empowerment, that universally apply to any female?
The most powerful thing that I feel, is that I have control over what I do. I dunno, maybe you do? But that's the only thing I think, is the challenge - getting people to see through that and getting critics or whoever to see past what you wear and just concentrate on the music.
The following day, another video teaser was uploaded revealing the title and cover art for Goulding's third studio album, Delirium.
She also announced that Delirium would be released on 6 November. She performed a variety of songs similar to her Apple Music Festival setlist.

She sings like she is strung out on the melody, warbling from a place of desperate emotion. It really is that rarest and perhaps most accidental of gifts: He then continued in regards to her vocal layering stating, "producer Jim Eliot puts her voice front, back and centre, banking up choral walls of vibrato, fashioning hooks from cut up samples of chirrups and chants, and creating unusual textures from trills and warbles".
I have to really control it because it just kind of goes everywhere. Like, sometimes stuff comes out that I don't expect. A lot, actually [ It's so funny because my favourite thing to do is imitate opera singers, but I've never had a singing lesson. Oh, I had a lesson just to teach me how to breathe better, but I never really had a singing lesson.
The album contained "sparkling pop with a folky heart and an electronic edge" and was noted as being infectious. She stepped away from the electronic sound of her previous album and moved to a more tribal and anthemic sound containing a bit more piano and vocal.
