Ellie Goulding's "Army" Video: Watch The Ode to Friendship & Fans

Ellie Goulding's certainly on a high with her highest-charting album to date (Delirium gave the electro-pop star her first Top 5 album in November), and another hit single ("On My Mind" hit the Top 20), but the British singer isn't forgetting the people that matter most, as she shows with her new music video for "Army."

The black-and-white visual opens with a handwritten dedication from Ellie to her "best friend Hannah" and her "incredible fans." Throughout the clip, we see candid footage of Ellie and Hannah cracking up, traveling in planes and goofing around backstage at festivals, along with concert footage of the "Lights" singer and the sea of fans supporting her.

While previous single "On My Mind" saw the star detailing the quirky ins and outs of a complicated relationship, "Army" now shows a different side of Goulding that proves her emphasis on friendship and fans, making the lyrics, "When I'm with you, I'm standing with an army" that much more powerful. Delirium has proven to be Ellie's most personal project in years and we're digging these more intimate moments.
