Whoa! This was rather unexpected.

Ellie Goulding has, without warning, dropped her first EP on iTunes three hours ago, entitled An Introduction to Ellie Goulding.

The EP contains “Under the Sheets” and “Wish I Stayed,” as well as two acoustic videos for “Wish I Stayed” and “Roscoe,” with a final introductory video to round it all out.

I haven’t been able to listen or view this yet (it’s also UK exclusive), but I’m looking forward to doing so later tonight.

Additionally, Goulding’s got a brand new, sparkling website. It’s nice and Web 2.0 looking, plus you can hear “Starry Eyed” in beautiful high quality in the audio player at the top of the screen. Good stuff.

…I’m just hoping this isn’t going to turn into another Little Boots hype debacle for 2010.

Thanks to my friend Raj over at EQ for noticing!
