Coming to viewers across the globe this Wednesday, August 26th, Ellie Goulding presents The Brightest Blue Experience, a one-off exclusive pay-per-view presented by LIVEnow, recorded and livestreamed from London’s iconic V&A (Victoria & Albert Museum).

Goulding has announced that during the livestream, close friends and recent collaborators Diplo and Blackbear will drop into the show to give fans a very special addition to the performance. The showcase will see Goulding perform tracks from her new double-sided Brightest Blue album for the first time as well as some fan favorites all of which will be accompanied by a special ensemble of live musicians.

“Since touring isn’t possible for the time being I’m so excited to be able to debut some of my new album to fans across the world with this one-off show,” Goulding shares of the event. “It’s a truly incredible opportunity to push my creative boundaries and perform inside one of London’s most iconic museums – I can’t wait for you all to see the spectacle we have put together for this extraordinarily special experience.”

The stream will also be broadcast via three additional streams to cater to audiences across the globe from North, South and America as well as Asia, Australia and New Zealand. The full broadcast times are as follows:

Brightest Blue is presented in two parts, the first 13 tracks are the thoughtful contemplations that make up the project that was executively produced by Goulding and Joe Kearns, and the second part, EG.0, consists of huge pop bangers with collaborators including Lauv, Swae Lee and the late Juice Wrld. Across the two halves Goulding enlisted a number of writers and producers to help create the finished product, including the likes of Tobias Jesso Jr., Starsmith, ILYA, serpentwithfeet, Patrick Wimberly (of Chairlift) and Jim Eliot amongst others.
