Ellie Goulding is hoping she can find a way to feature Sir David Attenborough's voice into a new song about the dawn of creation.

The 27-year-old has revealed she would love to include the 88-year-old broadcaster's sweet and soothing voice on her next record.

Goulding, who is a huge fan of Attenborough's wildlife programmes, told The Sun newspaper: ''I've written a lot of songs about relationships and break-ups. I feel like my next album is going to be about the beginning of the universe and also watching documentaries and loving David Attenborough - his voice and his knowledge is amazing.

''If I could somehow utilise his voice in a recording with me, it would be awesome - a chance to make a point with my music and his authority.''

Goulding is currently recording tracks for the follow-up to 2012's Halcyon, which was re-released as an expanded version titled Halcyon Days last summer.
