Two pieces of exciting Elliphant news to get to today. The first is that she's released the cover for her album Living Life Golden (picture) in which she's being cradled by a large cuddly creature. It's brilliant. The second is that she's released the opening track off the album Step Down. The tune was produced by Joel Little who had his hands all over Lorde's Pure Heroine and you can sort of tell here apart from the fact that Elliphant's boundless charisma makes it impossible to make comparison. It's a pretty placid instrumental but as always Elliphant finds a way to elevate it to another level like when she descends into yelling at the end.
The Swede will be in the country for Falls Festival at the end of this year and you can also catch her at a few sideshows which you can peep here.
Living Life Golden is out 25th March 2016.
