But Ellie Goulding denied that “On My Mind” is about her ex-boyfriend Ed Sheeran.
With lyrics including “Next thing that I know, I’m in a hotel with you/ You were talking deep like it was mad love to you/ You wanted my heart, but I just liked your tattoos”, a lot of things certainly do tie up with Ed and the lyrics to “Don’t”… Take a listen to our girl’s new single below.
The British singer-songwriter will be releasing her third album on November 6th through Polydor Records. She just dropped a new song, and we’re all pretty sure it’s about him. As well as the new single, it will also include the track “Love Me Like You Do”, which featured on the soundtrack for the movie Fifty Shades of Grey and topped the UK singles chart for four weeks earlier in 2015.
Delirium is an expansive pop album that reflects its globe-spanning creation. Ellie worked with Max Martin, Greg Kurstin, One Republic’s Ryan Tedder, Klas Ahlund and Disclosure’s Guy Lawrence as well as long-time writing partner Jim Eliot.
She taught herself to play the guitar when she was a teen.
“I’m sorry to all the people that want it to be about someone – it’s not, it’s like a myth”, she said.
The album will consist of a pretty lengthy 16 tracks, with an additional six songs available on the deluxe version.
The album title felt to Goulding like it was the word that summed up everything she’d been through to get to this point.
