Mark Ronson, Ellie Goulding, Rita Ora tipped for success in 2015 by UK government

Mark Ronson, Ellie Goulding, Rita Ora, Coldplay and Emeli Sande have been tipped for success in a new report by the UK government as it is revealed that the UK’s Creative Industries are worth a colossal £76.9 billion per year to the UK economy.

In a press release, a government spokesman said: "2015 looks set to be another bumper year for UK creative talent. There is already a huge number of highly anticipated offerings from every sector of the UK’s creative community."

The report goes on to name Ellie Goulding's much-anticipated follow-up to Halcyon, Coldplay's new album A Head Full Of Dreams, the forthcoming new albums from Sande and Ora, and Ronson's Uptown Special, which is released on Monday (January 19th), as albums they expect to be hugely successful. 

Sajid Javid, Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, said: "The UK’s Creative Industries are recognised as world leaders around the globe and today’s figures show that they continue to grow from strength to strength. Government is determined to continue its support for this most dynamic of sectors as part of our long-term economic plan. The tax reliefs we’ve got in place and are extending to Children’s TV and orchestras have been instrumental in attracting inward investment, and are part of broad package of measures designed to ensure the continued success of the Creative Industries."

Other releases named in the report include the new James Bond movie SPECTRE and the next instalment of Game Of Thrones.
