Calvin Harris is releasing hit after hit and he has done it again with Outside featuring Ellie Goulding. Ellie Goulding is a great addition to Calvin Harris. This new song off of Calvin Harris’s new album, Motion, is surely a hit and is likely the next single to be promoted and rock the EDM world.
If you can’t remember the previous Calvin Harris & Ellie Goulding hit, it was the 2012 Electronic Dance Music master piece: I Need Your Love.
While I Need Your Love was about how two lover need each other, Outside gives the parallel perspective of an ex lover looking in from the outside. It’s almost ironic the two chose this theme for a new song. It’s an artistic display to interpret opposite romantic emotional extremes through musical narrative.
Ellie Goulding, a popular English singer-songwriter and actress, first reached stardom in 2010 with the release of her first studio album: Lights. The album debuted at the number one spot in UK album charts and has sold over 850,000 copies in the UK.
Aside from Ellie Goulding’s success with Calvin Harris she was also featured on Zedd’s debut album Clarity, where she brought her vocal talent to the song: Fall into the Sky.
What to Expect from Motion
We have been covering all of the latest news about Motion and truthfully it is all pretty amazing. The marketing behind Motion is a constant barrage of information that makes it a task for an EDM news blog to keep up. A sneak peak of Gwen Stefani Together being released on Instagram one second, then an Ellie Goulding song the next! You can’t forget the release of Slow Acid and the associated video are doing well too, with over 2 million views on YouTube in a matter of days.
It’s hard to say what is going to come next, but I suspect we should be seeing a video for Outside very shortly. Considering the complete audio of the song has already been released and promoted as what may be considered a single to the album, Motion, it wouldn’t be unlikely that the music video is released in the next coming months. When the video is released is usually when you see a song go from popular among Electronic Dance Music listeners to popular in the more mainstream light as a Pop song as it climes the charts to that coveted #1 Hot 100 spot, which this song undoubtedly will.
