At this point I think it’s safe to say that Ellie Goulding‘s upcoming album Delirium will be one of the Best of the Year, everything from “Love Me Like You Do” to lead single “On My Mind” to “Something In The Way You Move” to last week’s “Lost And Found” has been complete GOLD-ING. And she’s only just begun (having her fun). . .
This week, the talented UK goddess has thrown official “On My Mind” follow-up single “Army” into the mix as the LP’s latest iTunes pre-order treat. Co-written alongside Ellie, Savan Kotecha and Ali Payami, and produced by the forever-amazing Max Martin, “Army” is a soaring love anthem loaded with all sorts of sweeping melodies and lush Swede-pop production, all made perfect with one massive chorus: “When I’m with you/ When I’m with you/ I’m standing with an army/ I’m standing with an army,” Ellie declares.
But just like “Love Me Like You Do,” that first chorus go-around is simply just a tease of what’s to come. Each time she hits it, the song bursts with more backing vocals and even bigger gorgeous synth-pop production. And by the time she reaches that final build (“YEAH!!!/ STANDING WITH AN ARMY”), Ellie lets it all out and truly takes us to new heights. NEED ALL OF DELIRIUM NOW!
“Army” will be available at midnight – Pre-order Delirium on iTunes now!
