Ellie Goulding won't be appearing on Martin Garrix & David Guetta's new collaboration, 'So Far Away'

Garrix blames Goulding and Goulding blames her label...

Martin Garrix has confirmed that his collaboration with David Guetta, 'So Far Away', will no longer feature a guest vocal from Ellie Goulding.

Garrix gave the collaboration a road test during his Tomorrowland set earlier this year which seems to have annoyed Goulding's management and label.

Goulding admitted on Twitter that she hadn't even heard the track herself before he played it out, though she admitted say she was "cool" with that but it turns out her team were not best pleased and have blocked the track's release.

After a series of tweets between each artist and their respective fans (below), Garrix declared "she didn't want to release it", whilst Goulding stated that she had "always loved the song very much".

So everyone involved in the track loves it yet due to label politics it's not going to be released in its original form, and will now feature male vocalist Jamie Scott.

Of course, Martin Garrix has a history of locking horns with labels after he was forced to take Dutch label Spinnin' Records to court to free himself from his record deal.

Anyway, the alternative version of 'So Far Away' will be released tomorrow (1st December) and you can hear a preview of it below.
