Ellie Goulding has announced a new UK arena tour for next year.

In all, she will perform in 10 cities across the UK, including Sheffield’s Motorpoint Arena on March 12 and Nottingham’s Captial FM Arena on March 13.

She will also release her third studio album, Delirium, on November 6.

Delirium is the follow-up to 2012’s Halcyon, which cemented Goulding’s status as a global artist.

The new album is It is available to pre-order now and the first taste of it, the new single On My Mind, was released this week.

“A part of me views this album as an experiment – to make a big pop album,” she said.

“I made a conscious decision that I wanted it to be on another level.

“It can be describing a really happy, crazy state, or it can be the complete opposite.

“I’m constantly in a state of delirium.”

Ellie Goulding’s star has been rising since the release of her debut Lights in 2010.

She has now sold more than 20 million records worldwide, had two number one albums, won two Brit Awards and had Vevo views and streams both in excess of one billion.

This year’s siongle Love Me Like You Do was a worldwide number one, hitting the top spot in 70 countries and breaking the record for the most streamed song in one week.

Tickets for her tour are available now online at www.elliegoulding.com

Alternatively, they are available from gig venues.
