About this album

Lights is the debut studio album by English singer-songwriter Ellie Goulding. It was released in the UK on 1 March 2010 on Polydor Records. The album sold almost 40,000 copies in it’s first week, debuting at number 1 on the UK Albums Chart.

Goulding worked with producers Starsmith, Frankmusik, Fraser T. Smith and Richard Stannard; the majority of the album was recorded in the former’s bedroom in Bromley, London.

Goulding explained that the album “is made up of songs that all started on a guitar over a period of about two years. A number of the songs vent romantic victories and failures.” She revealed that the first song she ever wrote, “Wish I Stayed”, is featured on the album. She also said of her music: “Though I write on guitar, I hear the entire sound of songs in my head. And Fin is someone who understands.”

    Wait, the cover up there - Ellie in the blue shirt, tilting her head back - is THAT the cover people hate? How? It's gorgeous. Don't really care for the dark cover with the MS Paint spray-can effect, though... [3] Lol @ MS Paint spray-can effect.

    The US cover is good, but I prefer the UK cover since it's the version I have in physical.

    Please read the following before uploading: The image should be the actual cover art for this album (preferably no less than 300 x 300px). If this album has multiple artwork, check if there is a release date to disambiguate. If that throws up nothing, use your best judgement and upload the artwork with the larger print run (most recognisable, popular). ^^according to this the four(!) people who uploaded the cover for the us version are unable to read
