Skrillex and Ellie Goulding have been recording with Swedish House Mafia, reportedly for Goulding's new album.

Sebastian Ingrosso of Swedish House Mafia has spoken about the demo the three acts made together, saying the session was "no pressure, just fun". Talking to Billboard, Ingrosso explained:

We made a demo and it was amazing; we had a blast… Ellie is a great artist... her voice is amazing. Skrillex, enough said, he is Skrillex.

Ingrosso revealed that the DJ and singer, who are a couple, were late to the session, which was arranged by the Interscope record label, saying: "Ellie and Skrillex came in 30 minutes late, and we had already started with a melody. Skrillex freaked out, he loved it, and after a few hours we wrote the song."

Ingrosso said that he believed the track will be included on the follow up to Goulding's 2010 debut album, 'Lights', but added: "in this business you don't know until you see it on iTunes".

Skrillex recently revealed that he started dating Ellie Goulding after they sparked up an internet romance. He told Rolling Stone that their relationship had blossomed after he sent her an unsolicited email.

Skrillex will headline this summer's South West Four Weekender. The DJ, who released his new EP 'Bangarang' in February, will headline the festival's closing night, with Chase and Status confirmed to close the show on the opening night. SW4 will be Skrillex's only festival appearance in London of 2012.
