Ellie Goulding's third studio album Delirium sees the British singer deviating from a path of soulful, low-key ballads, to pop with firepower.
Over 22 tracks , the Love Me Like You Do singer presents so-far unheard sounds with track names that explore the emotional turmoil of a break-up.
First track Aftertaste contrasts powerful dance beats with lyrics that touch upon the end of a relationship, before darker rhythms and themes are unveiled on Don't Need Nobody, Devotion, and Scream It Out.
Listeners will discover a hidden gem in the nostalgic Army, which forms a melodic reunion with Goulding's last album, Halcyon.
The deluxe version's I Do What I Love brings out the singer's defiant side, before she concludes her emotional journey with the optimistically named trio Paradise, Winner, and Heal.
The title Delirium makes perfect sense: a story of intoxication, frenzy, and ecstasy.
Goulding unleashes greater emotions in this album than its predecessors, and leaves it for us to work out who she's singing about.
