Though it was only last week that Ellie Goulding released a second EP of “Lights” remixes, including a turn by Lady Gaga associate Fernando Garibay, the charming British warbler (currently on tour in the US) has premiered a new music video for “Starry Eyed.” The song was produced, like much of Lights, by Starsmith.
Taking a literal cue from the song’s title, this second “Starry Eyed” video — there’s a UK take featuring gymnastics and levitation — features Goulding encountering her very own Starman. Plenty of skyward gazing is involved, though “Starry Eyed” starts on the ground with some Mini Cooper branding to help pay for the special effects that follow.
Several of Goulding’s US dates are sold out, but having seen her do her thing live twice this year already, I highly recommend catching her if you can. She is making a couple of in-store appearances at Best Buy along the way, so perhaps that’s your, ahem, best bet for seeing Goulding this time through.
