Ellie Goulding Premieres New Song ‘On My Mind’

Having hinted all week by posting snippets, Ellie Goulding finally debuted her new song On My Mind on both Radio 1 and Capital FM this morning.

The Love Me Like You Do singer has been busy in the studio working on new music and On My Mind looks set to be another hit for the songstress.  Ellie appears to have gone back to her roots on this song, saying “I think for the past couple of years I’ve maybe been filtering out lyrics quite a bit and going for a more typical kind of pop structure, but this song, we had so much fun writing it, it just comes back to that basic thing of having that person just constantly stuck in our heads.”

The catchy pop track was produced by Max Martin and features lyrics such as “Thought that you were cute and you could make me jealous/ Pour it down, so I poured it down/ 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“.


Some people are already speculating that the song is in reply to Ed Sheeran’s Don’t, but Ellie has been quick to dismiss those rumours.  She told MTV UK “I’m sorry to all the people that want it to be about someone — it’s not, it’s like a myth. I like guys with tattoos, my boyfriend has tattoos…but I don’t mind. People can read into it however they want. It’s fun to do that, I would do that too.”

Ellie also announced her new album called Delirium which is expected to be released on November 6th.  However, if you pre-order your copy, you will be able to get a download of On My Mind straight away!
