Hot Video Alert: Ellie Goulding - Lights
FINALLY. Ellie Goulding is releasing "Lights" as her next single. The Richard Stannard (AKA Biffco)-produced single has always been one of my favorite tracks off Goulding's Bright Lights re-release and was originally supposed to be the British singer/songwriter's fifth single before the powers that be decided to release "Your Song" instead. The decision certainly seemed to pay off as "Your Song" became Goulding's highest chart debut yet, peaking at #2 on the UK Singles Chart - still - I was holding out hope that "Lights" would see the light of day as a single. Lucky me! We now have the music video and word that the Goulding/Stannard/Ash Howes co-penned track will be the sixth single for Goulding and single number two off of Bright Lights. While there's no official release date yet for "Lights" we can likely expect it sometime soon, given that the video premiered on January 16th. Speaking on the video, it's definitely Goulding's most mainstream POP video yet. Nothing crazy, just Goulding dancing around with some strobe lights and other cool visual FX. She's got a tambourine, some drums and some sexy outfits. Not gonna lie but I kinda like it. Thanks Prophet for the heads up on this video.
As previously mentioned, U.S. fans can expect to see "Lights" appear as the title track on Goulding's forthcoming U.S. debut album when it's released on Cherrytree Records March 8th.
