British singer Ellie Goulding contemplated her youth as a rebellious teenager in new single “Sixteen”. The song will likely appear on her fourth studio album, which will come out at an unknown date.

“That age was such a pivotal year for me in many ways and this song is so close to my heart,” explained the British singer in a statement.


The song was co-produced by Ian Kirkpatrick — who previously collaborated with Britney Spears and Julia Michaels — along with FRED and Mike Wise.

Goulding also released the accompanying lyric video, which features a collage of pictures of her friends when they were 16. The artwork includes snaps of Katy Perry and RAYE.
