The British singer-songwriter recently released her new song, “Anything Could Happen”, in hopes of inspiring people to get married.
Goulding spoke to MTV News about the meaning behind the song: “I suppose it’s one of those songs where I sort of talk about bits of my childhood, but also about my friendship with this person, and, I suppose it’s a song of realisation. It’s called ‘Anything Could Happen,’ so I’m hoping it will make people go out and propose to their girlfriends or go on that holiday they never ended up doing. I hope it will provoke positivity, as opposed to make people really sad.”
She also added some details about her forthcoming album, Halcyon, which comes out on October 9: “I’ve moved on quite a bit since the first album. I’ve learned a lot more and I’ve grown up a lot more. Different influences and people have influenced it; I suppose just through circumstances. It’s a bit more tribal and anthemic; a bit more piano and vocal than anything. This one, to me, is way more of a pop record.”
