Ellie Goulding continued her reign last year as one of the queens of the emerging EDM/pop hybrid scene with last year's Delirium. Ever since "Lights" took the music world by storm earlier this decade, Ms. Goulding has been at the forefront of blurring the lines between dance and pop music at each step in her career. But it's also nice to be reminded that she's got a more traditional, almost orchestral side that gives off a chance to shine a spotlight on her powerhouse vocals. The primary track to showcase that side of her career from Delirium was "Army," and Ellie Goulding has just released a new music video for the track today.
Opening with a title card showing that the video is dedicated to her best friend and her fans, it's easy to see what Ellie Goulding was trying to accomplish with the piece. Combining a series of close-ups of Goulding's face as she sings the track alongside tour and studio footage of the performer, Goulding is offering an insider view of this stage in her career that we're sure her fans will eat up very willingly. And considering she's going to be a mainstay on this year's summer festival circuit, many of these fans should have plenty of fans to see her in the near future.
