Goulding: I just put up a barrier

Knutsford Guardian: Some of Ellie Goulding's songs were inspired by her own heartbreak Some of Ellie Goulding's songs were inspired by her own heartbreak

Ellie Goulding has admitted she has to "put up a barrier" before performing songs inspired by her own heartache.

The singer released her second album, Halcyon, this year and much of the record was inspired by her break-up with BBC Radio 1 DJ Greg James.

Ellie said that performing the personal songs of heartbreak each night is easy - as long as she acts her way through them.

"I just put up a barrier before I perform those songs," she said.

"It's just like acting - acting a really tragic, horrific event that happened to someone else. Sometimes that slips and I'll go back to feeling how I did when I wrote the song, feeling vulnerable.

"The feeling is always there, I just have to avoid it so I can perform the songs every night."

Ellie is set to tour the UK and said she particularly loves performing on home turf.

"It's a warmer feeling generally," she said. "The humour is different, and in places like Glasgow and Edinburgh, really rowdy."
