Ellie Goulding wants to release “Slow Grenade” with Lauv ahead of her forthcoming fourth album Brighest Blue, which comes out July 17. And he’s all for it.
“So I’ve been thinking about releasing one more song before #BrightestBlue comes out. maybe with @lauvsongs?” she asked her 6.6 million Twitter followers today (June 29). According to her tracklist, the English singer-songwriter split her album into two parts titled Brightest Blue and EG.0, and the Lauv joint falls in the latter with a few other star-studded songs featuring blackbear (“Worry About Me”), Diplo and Swae Lee (“Close To Me”), and the late Juice WRLD (“Hate Me”).
“yayayayayayayay :)” the “I Like Me Better” hitmaker replied on Twitter, which Goulding used as permission to reveal one of the song’s lyrics: “… slow grenade it’s blowing up my mistakes. so why don’t i, why don’t i stop it? @lauvsongs.” One clever Twitter user couldn’t help but join in on their cuteness and quipped, “LAUV ME LIKE YOU DO!!” in reference to Goulding’s Hot 100 No. 3 hit from the first Fifty Shades of Grey film.
Goulding later shared a sweet black-and-white photo of the two artists to announce that “Slow Grenade” would officially drop tomorrow (June 30), which Lauv later retweeted.
