Only available on the Tesco-backed physical copy of Halcyon, “Stay Awake” serves as the final hidden piece of the puzzle that is Ellie Goulding’s sophomore LP. The best news however, comes by way of Hugo Pierre Leclercq, otherwise known as Madeon, who produced this monster indie-dance meets punk rock tune.
If you’ve ever heard to the French boy wonder on the boards, you will almost instantly recognize his sound as soon as the action-packed beat drops in at the 27 seconds mark. I have been waiting for this epic collab since this Summer, and I could not be happier with how it turned out. Indulge yourself with some bonus Halcyon below, and find the deluxe version out on iTunes here.
@elliegoulding Seems like people are really into Stay Awake, i’m hearing a lot about it! You sound amazing on it
