Ellie Goulding has opened up about her relationship with Skrillex and has claimed that she and her producer boyfriend are "very similar".

In March of this year, it was reported that the 'Starry Eyed' singer and the much-discussed dubstep DJ had began dating after Skrillex sent her an unsolicited email and their online flirting blossomed into a full-blown relationship.

Speaking to You magazine, Goulding said of their surprising romance: "I became very good friends with Sonny when we worked together and after that we realised we wanted to spend a lot of time together. Although we are very similar, I didn't see it coming at all, especially after such a sad time breaking up with Greg [James, BBC Radio 1 DJ].

"Sonny is based in Los Angeles but sort of lives in hotels," she added. "I've been splitting my time between my work and seeing him on tour because he pretty much does a show every night, so if I want to see him, I go along."

Earlier this month, Goulding revealed that although she and Skrillex had recorded a track together, the collaboration would not feature on her new LP 'Halycon' – although she did hint they would team up in the future. "I definitely wanted him to work with this record, and… there's no doubt that Sonny and I will work together, when we're both a little bit less busy," she said. "Because at the moment, his career is crazy."

'Halcyon' is the follow-up to Goulding's 2010 debut 'Lights' and will be released on October 8. It will be preceded by a single, 'Anything Could Happen', on September 30. The singer acted as co-producer on 'Halcyon', which was recorded in her hometown in the Hay Valley with producer Jim Elliot (Kylie Minogue/Ladyhawke).

Last month Goulding released of a cover of Active Child's 'Hanging On', which featured a guest appearance from Tinie Tempah. The song is also available to download by clicking here.
