Next month Ellie Goulding will release her much anticipated album Halcyon.
More recently, the “Lights” singer has teamed up with actress Dakota Fanning for her UK single, “I Know You Care.” The single is featured on the soundtrack of Dakota’s new movie Now is Good which stars herself and Jeremy Irvine.
In the film, Dakota plays a 17-year-old who is passionate about life. Diagnosed with a terminal illness she decides to abstain from treatment and is determined to use every moment. As a result, she compiles a bucket list of things she wants to experience before she dies.
Set in England, the music video for “I Know You Care” features touching and poignant scenes from the movie in which Dakota’s character Tessa falls in love with her neighbor Adam, who is played by Irvine. Ellie’s voice and lyrics capture the emotion of the film.
Halcyon will be released Oct. 9th. Goulding wrote and co-produced all the tracks on the album in her hometown in the Hay Valley, West England.
