Ellie Goulding Teases New Single “On My Mind”: Listen To A Snippet Of The Max Martin-Produced Track
Ellie Goulding (kind of) teased new single “On My Mind” yesterday (February 14) with a mysterious gif, but she ups the ante today by sharing a snippet on Instagram. While it’s hard to gauge the direction of the song from a couple of seconds, it’s fair to say that the Brit is pursuing a more commercial pop sound this time around. In fact, from the very brief preview, the Max Martin-produced jam could be mistaken for the latest from Demi Lovato or Selena Gomez. Which isn’t exactly a bad thing.
That’s in line with the description Ellie gave Capital FM in late August. “The first single? I really like it, it’s very different for me,” she said. “But I think it’s a good different.” The “Love Me Like You Do” hitmaker even explained the video concept. “Well it involves me and another girl who’s really hot and we’re sort of like Thelma & Louise,” she explained. “I guess [you’ll see it] in about a month’s time. I’m very excited about it.”
