UPDATE 11/18 AT 7:45PM: The Ellie Goulding signing has been moved to MONDAY NOV 21 at 3:30pm!

Popular British singer / songwriter Ellie Goulding will return to Amoeba San Francisco where, seven months ago, she recorded what is being released as her new EP, Ellie Goulding: Live at Amoeba Music San Francisco! She will do a special CD signing at our Haight Street location at 3:30pm, November 21st (the official release date of the live EP from Cherrytree / Interscope Records, which was recorded at Amoeba SF on April 14th, 2011).

This will truly be a historic day for Amoeba Music and a highly anticipated event for the legions of Goulding fans who helped propel her acclaimed debut album on Interscope, Lights (released last year in the UK and in March of this year in the US), to popularity. Goulding fans, both Stateside and back in Britain, have been fiending for a follow-up release from the unique and powerful vocalist, so you can bet that this Amoeba in-store will be a packed event.  Be sure to try and arrive earlier than the 3:30pm official start time if you plan on attending!

In her native Britain, the 24-year-old Goulding, whose Lights album ranked as the biggest and fastest selling debut album of 2010, has scored a series of Top 20 hits including "Starry Eyed," "The Writer," and her popular version of the Elton John/Bernie Taupin classic "Your Song." She also racked up a slew of industry awards upon her critically and commercially acclaimed arrival last year including a BBC Sound of 2010 award, a Critic's Choice 2010 BRIT Award, and a 2010 MTV Europe Music Awards for "Best UK & Ireland Act of the Year." After conquering Britain, Goulding turned her sights  (Lights?) to the US where her electro-folk-pop debut album Lights was officially released in March this year (before that it was an in-demand import-only album), followed by the artist doing a series of concerts and showcases including the incredibly well received Amoeba San Francisco in-store - all of which helped her score a US club and radio hit with the Lights title track. The infectious pop song (video below) has also enjoyed a deluge of remixes and studio reworkings including NorCal artist/producer Bassnectar's charged remix of "Lights", while mash-up master DOSVEC did a cool remix mashed up version by digitally teaming up the UK singer with Florida rap star Flo Rida that he titled "Feeling Lights." 

Flanked  by two musicians on acoustic guitars at Amoeba San Francisco, Goulding did an inspired, soulful, live unplugged version of "Lights" at the packed in-store performance on April 14th with members of the Amoeba audience shouting out "We love you!" throughout the memorable showcase. Other songs at this pitch perfect performance at Amoeba, which I can't wait to hear in final remastered form on the forthcoming Ellie Goulding: Live at Amoeba Music San Francisc, included "Guns and Horses," "Your Song," and "Starry Eyed."

The official release date for Ellie Goulding: Live at Amoeba Music San Francisco is November 21st, but you can pre order the CD today here. Like other popular powerful female singers from the UK such as Duffy, Adele and the late great Amy Winehouse, Ellie Goulding looks set to fully capture the ears and hearts of US fans on a grand scale - something that started at Amoeba Music San Francisco. Be a part of pop music history and catch the upcoming November 21st Amoeba Music San Francisco in-store meet-and-greet and CD signing, and be able to say, "I was there at Amoeba." And/or be sure to pick up the soon-to-drop new EP Ellie Goulding: Live at Amoeba Music San Francisco. More info on November 21st in-store here.
