Gearing up for her stateside tour, Ellie Goulding has released 9 remixes of her smash hit, “Lights” from her debut album. The remixes feature a variety of contributors: Drop Lamond, Fernando Garibay, Captain Cuts, Ming, RAC, Bassnectar, MK Charlee, Max Gordon, and Shook. Above, find the video for the Bassnectar remix. While “Part 2″ of the remixes are currently only circling the DJ circuit, “Part 1″ is available for purchase! All remixes, however, are streaming on the Giant Step Jukebox.
This spring, Ellie made headlines when she was personally asked by William and Kate to play at the royal wedding where she performed a gorgeous cover of Elton John’s “Your Song.” May followed with performances on Saturday Night Live and Live With Regis and Kelly. Ellie’s “The Lights Tour” commences July 23rd in Atlanta and wraps in late August. Find tour dates after the jump!
Buzznet recently did a video interview with the “folktronica songstress,” which touches on everything from unicorns to Drake to Nachos. The London Evening Standard also caught up with the seeming overnight sensation to discuss the royal wedding and her journey thus far.
