Tickets have gone on sale for the lovely Ellie Goulding’s first headline show in London on December 1st at Cargo. She should have no problem picking up enough fans to fill the space over the course of her upcoming 9-date tour with Little Boots and with the added bonus of her Florence + The Machine support slot at the Union Chapel on November 22nd. Ellie’s debut single ‘Under The Sheets’ received its first radio play last week ahead of its November 9th release through Neon Gold Records. You can currently download the Starsmith-produced track for free from the label’s blog.
