LIsten: Ellie Goulding album sampler

After the phenomenal success of Ellie Goulding's cover of Your Song, I feared her second album would be a snoresome acoustic-ballad sobfest. I was wrong.

Ellie posted a 2-minute trailer for Halcyon on YouTube over the weekend. It's hard to draw conclusions but the work she presents is euphoric, percussive pop, strewn with hooks and blooming with harmonies. There is evidence of one "I am crying at a piano" moment, but even that sounds delicate and pretty in its own way.

But can anyone confirm whether the lyric at 1'47" makes a reference to "trouser love"???
