(Santa Monica, CA) Cherrytree/Interscope recording artist ELLIE GOULDING will release a live physical EP, entitled LIVE AT AMOEBA, exclusively through independent retailers on November 25th, on Record Store Day, also known as Black Friday. The EP — which features live acoustic performances of the British singer and songwriter’s hits “Starry Eyed” and “Lights” (currently climbing the Hot AC radio chart), plus a cover of Elton John’s “Your Song” — was recorded at independent record store Amoeba Music in San Francisco on April 14th, 2011, while Ellie was on the road for her first sold-out U.S. tour supporting her debut album LIGHTS.
To celebrate the EP’s release, Ellie will return to Amoeba Music in San Francisco to sign advance copies on November 20th. This in-store event begins at 5 p.m. Amoeba Music is located at 1855 Haight Street, San Francisco.
After wowing audiences with her sold-out “The Lights Tour” over the summer, Ellie will perform five arena concerts with Katy Perry this month, including shows at Madison Square Garden in New York City and The Staples Center in Los Angeles. Please see below for all dates.
And finally, Ellie will also perform at this year’s Nobel Peace Prize Concert, along with Sugarland, David Gray, Jill Scott, Janelle Monae, and Matthew Morrison, on December 11th in Oslo, Norway. The show will be broadcast live over the Internet in 130 countries. Please visit www.nobelpeaceprizeconcert.no for more details.
Having already conquered her native Britain with the best-selling debut album of 2010, Ellie has also won over American audiences and garnered rave reviews for Lights. The album is, as the New York Times put it, “a happy car crash of signifiers: part electro-pop, part soul, part blues, part indie rock, part folk that mixes heartfelt emotion with other-worldly atmospherics.” The Los Angeles Times raved: “plenty of ethereal hooks, the album carries a dark overcast with a handful of emotionally raw tracks.” Rolling Stone called Lights, “sweet, sexed-up folktronica” and Entertainment Weekly affirms “anthemic dance-pop confessional.”
The track-listing for Live at Amoeba San Francisco is as follows:
“Guns and Horses”
