Ellie Goulding used a live radio interview to ask Calvin Harris when their next collaboration will be released.

The first-ever Electronic Music Awards has been postponed.
Top DJs including Diplo, Calvin Harris and Skrillex were set to be celebrated at the inaugural prizegiving ceremony on 23 April (16), but the awards show is now slated to take place in the autumn (16).
"As this is the first year of the awards, we have the luxury of flexibility, which we are taking advantage of to decide the optimal timetable to present the awards," a representative tells Billboard.com.
