Any lingering doubts that Ellie Goulding is not ultra-cool should be squashed with the arrival of the "Goodness Gracious" music video, which shows the U.K. songstress dancing in light-up shoes, partying with futuristic-looking pals and even skateboarding with ease.
The video for the new "Halcyon Days" single, which was directed by Kinga Burza and debuted on Sunday (Jan. 5), finds Goulding lighting up the night with the same pop pyrotechnics that highlighted the "Burn" music video. This time, however, there are bleached shots of palm trees, fishtanks, sunsets and the singer's friends hula-hooping, as well as the ultraviolet light-assisted makeup that popped up in Demi Lovato's recent "Neon Lights" video.
"Goodness Gracious" is the latest single from "Halcyon Days," the deluxe edition of Goulding's 2012 album "Halcyon" that was released last August. "Burn," the first single from the reissue, has sold 984,000 downloads to date, according to Nielsen SoundScan, while "Goodness Gracious" is just getting started, with 11,000 downloads sold.
After opening for Bruno Mars on his Moonshine Jungle tour last year, Goulding will kick off a spring headlining tour in New York on Mar. 12. Rudimental will serve as the opener on the run.
