Ellie Goulding: Here's what the fuss is about

By
It's called 'Starry Eyed' and it's the Brit Award-winning, BBC Sound poll-topping singer-songwriter's first proper single. "I decided to write something about the joining together of people in some kind of euphoric state," Ellie explained when we spoke to her back in December. "I wanted a song that would reach out to people of every background and every enjoyment, whether you enjoy a natural high, taking drugs, drinking or whatever."

Well, if you ask us, she's pretty much nailed it - 'Starry Eyed' manages to be folky, poppy and dancey all at the same time, twinkly but not twee, and otherworldly without losing its universal appeal. To be honest, it makes us want to put on a sparkly velvet cape - the sort of thing a wizard might wear - and dance around our flat like a big swishy idiot (having put the latch on first, of course). Anyway, press play below to watch the video, which features cartwheeling dancers, levitation and, as you might expect, one or two stars to boot.
