Earlier this week, Ellie Goulding debuted the music video for “Figure 8“. Much like “Anything Could Happen“, the clip is another beautifully-shot abstract visual. It begins with Goulding laying in bed alone caressing a red piece of cloth. We soon realize the cloth belongs to her deceased boyfriend. In between a series of flashbacks with her lost love, we see Ellie singing through said red cloth. The video ends with the Brit dropping, fittingly enough, the red cloth and her levitating off the bed.
“Figure 8” is the second single off her Halcyon album which was released in October. I wonder if the music video’s theme of death is in any way supposed to represent her recent breakup with ex-boyfriend, dubstep king Skrillex. The two dated for roughly a year. They say art imitates life, right? If you’re worried Ellie will be alone during the holidays, fear not. Rumors have it she’s now dating Brit actor Jeremy Irvine. That was fast ;) Looks like the 25-year-old singer took as along as the length of the music video to get over Skrillex ;) Check out the “Figure 8” music video below.
