Amazon Freevee Celebrates International Women’s Day With Debut of Official Trailer for Monumental: Ellie Goulding at Kew Gardens, Premiering March 31
Amazon Freevee celebrates International Women’s Day by premiering the official trailer for its upcoming concert special, Monumental: Ellie Goulding at Kew Gardens. The special will debut exclusively on Amazon Freevee in the U.S., UK, and Germany on March 31, ahead of Goulding’s fifth studio album, Higher Than Heaven, which will be released on April 7 via Interscope Records.
Global musical superstar and United Nations ambassador Ellie Goulding will perform for the special at the world’s largest and most diverse botanic gardens, London’s Kew Gardens. The show includes acoustic performances of fan favorites and an exclusive world premiere performance of selections from her new album, Higher Than Heaven. Radio host Roman Kemp also sits down with Goulding to discuss her new album and life as a new mom. Furthermore, Goulding discusses environmental urgency with Kew’s senior science policy advisor, Dr. Carly Cowell. Goulding’s inspiring environmental work aligns with Amazon’s commitment to The Climate Pledge, which has recruited over 400 companies and organizations across 35 countries to take urgent action on climate change and commit to be net-zero carbon by 2040—10 years ahead of the Paris Agreement.
On April 7, Amazon Music will release a deluxe version of Ellie Goulding’s album Higher Than Heaven, which includes an exclusive six-track audio recording from her performance.
Monumental, the first variety special from Amazon Freevee, is an intimate music performance special with a smart, narrative approach. Taking location and storytelling to their apexes, the program creates unforgettable concert experiences at the most iconic locations in the world. Each hour-long special dives deep into the design, creativity, and ambition of these important music events and venues, telling the unique story of each featured artist and highlighting their connection to the location.
Monumental: Ellie Goulding at Kew Gardens is directed by BAFTA-nominated multicamera director Liz Clare (An Audience with Adele, The Voice UK, and the BAFTA Awards telecast). Monumental: An Artists Den Experience is created and executive produced by Mark Lieberman and co-executive produced by Amber Mundinger, both of Artists Den Entertainment. Todd Wagner, Mark Cuban, and Haley Jones of 2929 Productions also serve as executive producers.
Ellie Goulding’s incredible career has seen her garner two Grammy Award nominations, a Golden Globe nomination, three No. 1 UK albums, and two BRIT Awards. She has sold more than 27 million albums and 216 million singles and amassed 43 billion streams worldwide. With over 50 million followers combined on her social platforms, she also earned YouTube’s Diamond Award, with 10 million subscribers on her YouTube channel and over 5 billion views globally.
A long-standing activist and philanthropist, Ellie Goulding uses her platform to engage young people with global issues. Goulding was awarded the U.N.’s New Voices Award, and in recognition of her wider activism, became a goodwill ambassador for U.N. Environment. She is also a TIME 100 Impact Award recipient and ambassador with the World Wildlife Fund. Given Goulding’s urgent activism for a greener world, there is no better venue pairing than London’s Kew Gardens, which is both literally and metaphorically close to home for the pop star. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Kew Gardens is home to the world’s largest Victorian glasshouse, The Temperate House, which houses some of the world’s rarest and most threatened plants. The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew is a conservation charity and an international leader in scientific research and sustainable development.
