Ellie Goulding reworks her smash hit, ‘Lights’ with new “sped up” version

Ellie Goulding has had many successes in her career but up at the top is the release of her hit song, ‘Lights’ The song catapulted her into the mainstream spotlight. And now, over a decade later, it has again been revisited, but this time with a new spin.

It’s a song that still generates buzz to this day. Released in 2010, ‘Lights’ introduced the world to Ellie Goulding and spawned a global obsession with the track from both fans and fellow artists. The original mix of ‘Lights’ ultimately rose to the #2 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 and has received a 5x platinum certification. With this notoriety has come many reworks but never a one from Goulding herself, until now.

Released just a few days ago, ‘Lights’ now has its newest reimaging from the very creator of the track with an official “sped up” version. As Goulding transitions into the next phase of her career, the ‘Lights (Sped Up Version)’ is designed to give listeners one final reminisce on the early days of the England-born singer.

This newest edition is a nice reminder of just how perfect and impactful ‘Lights’ is. While nothing else has been added or taken away, as simple as it may be, the small change of speeding up the track breathes it a whole new life. Not to mention, the melody, along with Goulding’s voice, still stands out as one of the best in the entire industry.

Hey everyone! I was blessed to have the opportunity to join the WRY team in 2020. I edit WRY's Youtube content and am also a writer for the website. I have been a massive fan in the EDM scene for over ten years and have been fortunate enough to see some iconic moments in person. Some of my favorite artists are Avicii, Martin Garrix, Krewella, The Chainsmokers, and KSHMR. I absolutely love to attend live shows. I try to spend almost every week at some kind of live event or festival (if not in person, at least watching online). And its a guarantee you can always catch me at Ultra Miami every year! Thank you for all the support! Follow me on Twitter to see which show I will be at next! Hopefully I can see you at an event or festival soon!
