Ghostly-Ghastly

Everyone, Ms. Ella Henderson!

Yes, that’s right, a crowd favourite from the UK X Factor, season 9 (2012) has released a new single, with the pre-release of her debut album, “Chapter One” set to retail around October 2014.

The first song I heard from Ella Henderson, “Missed,” was a haunting and beautiful ballad that Henderson was inspired to write thanks to her late Grandfather. I would technically call Missed the Debut Single, however another single has bested Missed to the front of the lines. Ghost, a quick stepped pop tune, has made it to the radio, and billboard top charts. The following are the lyrics for Ghost

I keep going to the river to pray
‘Cause I need something that can wash all the pain
And at most I’m sleeping all these demons away
But your ghost, the ghost of you
It keeps me awake

My friends had you figured out
Yeah, they saw what’s inside of you
You tried hiding another you
But your evil was coming through

These guys sitting on the wall
They watch every move I make
Bright light living in the shade
Your cold heart makes my spirit shake

I had to go through hell to prove I’m not insane
Had to meet the devil just to know his name

And that’s when my love was burning
Yeah, it’s still burning

[2x:]
I keep going to the river to pray
‘Cause I need something that can wash all the pain
And at most I’m sleeping all these demons away
But your ghost, the ghost of you
It keeps me awake

Each time that I think you go
I turn around and you’re creeping in
And I let you under my skin
‘Cause I love living in the sin

Boy you never told me
True love was going to hurt
True pain I don’t deserve
Truth is that I never learn

[2x:]
I keep going to the river to pray
‘Cause I need something that can wash all the pain
And at most I’m sleeping all these demons away
But your ghost, the ghost of you
It keeps me awake

Give up the ghost
Give up the ghost
Give up the ghost
Stop the haunting baby

Give up the ghost
Give up the ghost
Give up the ghost
No more haunting baby

I keep going to the river

[2x:]
I keep going to the river to pray
‘Cause I need something that can wash all the pain
And at most I’m sleeping all these demons away
But your ghost, the ghost of you
It keeps me awake

Now, here is the music video for the single:

Isn’t she beautiful?

So young, and so soulful, Henderson wrote Ghost along side Kenan Williams, Ryan Tedder, Noel Zancanella, and Michael Daley with production credit going to Tedder and Zancanella.

For any pop music enthusists, we definitely expect a great deal from Ms. Ella Henderson. Finally, here is Ella Henderson’s X-Factor Audition with her original song Missed.

Stay Innovative,

Mickey
