Ellie Goulding has shared another preview of her upcoming album, “Delirium”. On Friday, October 30, the British beauty dropped “Army” as the second single off the record, which is due out on November 6.
The new song may remind fans of Goulding’s hit “Love Me Like You Do” from the “Fifty Shades of Grey” soundtrack. Sounding like a slow tempo tune at first, it then builds into an explosive chorus as the 29-year-old songbird repeatedly declares, “When I’m with you, I’m standing with an army.”
In addition to releasing online the official audio of “Army”, Goulding shared a video of her performing the powerful track live at the iconic Abbey Road Studios. She shows off her signature vocals while accompanied by musicians playing piano and violins as well as a couple of backup vocalists.
Later on Friday, Goulding sent out an Instagram post explaining who inspired the song. “I realized that I had focused a a lot of writing on past relationships and it hit me I had never written about my best friend,” she began the post. “The person who was at my very first gig. The person who has seen me at my lowest and the first person I call in muffled sobs when something bad happens.”
