Goulding began teasing the track last week while blacking out her social media accounts. The new collaboration follows her 2015 album, Delirium, which features smash hits "On My Mind," "Love Me Like You Do," and more.

"Well this is a track that I had, that I wrote in LA about six months ago and then Wes Diplo heard it," Goulding told BBC Radio. "It's one of these moments that just kind of happens and it just all fit together." 

The 31-year-old premiered her new single earlier today live from London while also giving the interview below. Goulding is rumored to release her highly-anticipated fourth studio album in the spring of 2019.
