Special thank you to all of the fans for submitting over 1200 photos to this lyric video project. ‘Anything Could Happen’ is the debut single from Ellie’s forthcoming album ‘Halcyon’ out on 8th October.
Not for everyone of course, but even I found myself enjoying certain parts of her debut album back in 2010, and hence felt it worth giving this single a listen. Sadly, it’s not quite up to par for me, lacking any real urgency and instead feeling like it trudges along for the verses before delivering an underwhelming hook. With that said, the production has some high points, particularly towards the last 90 seconds of the track, a section in which Ellie also shows off a slightly edgier, less polished vocal style that suits her quite well. There are definite signs of quality in here, but as a whole it just doesn’t quite capture the imagination as you’d expect it to.
You can pre-order her upcoming Halcyon album right now at various outlets.
