Ellie Goulding has admitted that she often feels lonely, despite being in a relationship.
The 'Starry Eyed' singer, who is currently in a relationship with dubstep artist Skillrex, has said that despite being happy with him, their clashing musical careers is often the reason that they spend frequent time apart.
The 25-year-old has admitted that due to this, she regularly feels as if there's noone there to support and understand her.
''If someone asked me what emotion I felt the most it would be loneliness. My boyfriend travels around the world constantly. we see each other maybe once a month. So there's that, but there's also the loneliness of feeling you're the only person who can do things the way you want to do them.''
Continued the British songstress,
''I can be in a room with a bunch of friends and still feel pretty alone. I think I've always been like that, though.''
The singer-songwriter has also said that her new album Halcyon was a difficult experience because she felt completely isolated, even though she was working with a team.
Speaking to Culture magazine, she said: ''Making this record has definitely been the loneliest experience of my life - whether people have been there or not. I think part of me will always be like that, even during periods of happiness.''
Halcyon is the follow-up to Goulding's 2010 debut Lights and will be released on October 8.
