Ellie Goulding and Kygo at BBC Radio One on May 31, 2017 in London.
There’s something so captivating about Harry Styles‘ emotionally-political ballad “Sign of the Times.” It’s a heartfelt song for a generation that cries out for sense and meaning, and wouldn’t you know it, Ellie Gouldingdoes an incredible cover.
She joined Kygo for a quick trip to the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge Wednesday (May 31) where the pair performed a stripped-back rendition of hit collaboration “First Time” as well as a poignant “Sign of the Times.” Kygo shared teaser clips of the songs via Twitter.
Listen below and stay tuned for full versions.

Less than three months since the release of his Selena Gomez-assisted “It Ain’t Me,” Kygo is keeping the music coming with another collaboration on Friday (April 28). For this release, the Norwegian DJ teams up with Ellie Goulding for a record called “First Time,” which was announced on each of their social media feeds.
Even though Kygo is still hot on radio airwaves, “First Time” is Goulding’s first single since “Still Falling For You,” her late 2016 contribution to the soundtrack for Bridget Jones’s Baby. Earlier that year, the singer announced a hiatus from the music biz following a split from Dougie Poynter, her boyfriend of two years. But alas, the 30-year-old pop star has reportedly made a slow and steady effort on a new set alongside folks like Klas Åhlund, Jim Eliot, Carl Falk, Bloodpop and British singer/songwriter Raye.
Goulding hasn’t really dished much about the follow-up to 2015’s Delirium, but we’re going to expect that her collab with Kygo is just a small appetizer to the upcoming full-length set. Considering that she’s lined up to perform at the 16th edition of Morocco’s Mawazine Festiva in May, we’d like to think she’d offer up a little teaser of her recent studio sessions during the show, right? Fingers crossed!
Ellie Goulding ran into her ex bf during his gig in “Magic Mike Live,” and decided to take him for a ride … suspended above the stage.
Ellie was sitting front row Saturday at the new Las Vegas revue when her ex, Jackson Williams, pulled her onstage for one of his airborne stunts. You can probably figure it out from the video, but the stunt is called the “air f***.”
We’re guessing Ellie felt safe with a guy who’s been trained by Channing Tatum himself.
