The 'Starry Eyed' singer-songwriter says her latest release should "provoke positivity".
Ellie Goulding has revealed that she hopes her new single 'Anything Could Happen' can encourage people to get engaged.
The 24 year-old star told MTV News that she wants the track to inspire proposals or people taking a chance in their lives.
"I'm hoping it will make people go out and propose to their girlfriends or go on that holiday they never ended up doing," she admitted. "I hope it will provoke positivity, as opposed to making people really sad."
The star was recently pictured filming the music video for the track and also admitted that her new music reflects a more "grown up" side.
"I've moved on quite a bit since the first album, because I've discovered so much; I've learned a lot more and I've grown up a lot more," she added. "I've gained more influences and different influences and people have influenced it; I suppose just circumstances."
Her debut album, 2010's 'Lights', produced the the hit singles 'The Writer', 'Your Song' and 'Starry Eyed'.
'Anything Could Happen' is the first single from second album 'Halcyon' - which is due for release in October.
She is also expected to feature on Calvin Harris' new album,'18 Months' alongside the likes of Rihanna and Tinie Tempah.
