Following the release of her critically acclaimed fourth studio album, Brightest Blue, Ellie Goulding has released the video for one of its highlights, “Love I’m Given”, which you can check out below.
The new video for “Love I’m Given”, a powerful and emotive pop ballad taken from her recent album, sees Goulding team up with director Rianne White, who worked with the singer on “Flux” last year, alongside director of production Rina Yang (Kelela, FKA Twigs, Bjork). The talented team have created a striking visual which aesthetically echoes the artwork of the dual sided album, playing with the contrasting gold and blue artwork that Brightest Blue is presented in. The video sees Goulding boxing, shot at her local boxing gym during lockdown, juxtaposed with footage of the singer dressed in stunning gowns by Schiaporelli and Ashi Studio.
Speaking about the track and its video, Goulding explains “‘Love I’m Given’ is about accepting and being at peace with all the mistakes in your life and realizing you get the same love back you give out. The video represents the fight between calm and chaos. The Boxing ring is weirdly the place I feel the most pure and in control and the moments gold dress represent getting to a place of ultimate power when you know you are in the most powerful place you can be when you have that kind of revaluation about love and forgiveness.”
Recently, Ellie Goulding announced, “The Brightest Blue Experience” – a one-off exclusive pay-per-view presented by ‘Live Now’, recorded and livestreamed from London’s iconic V&A (Victoria & Albert Museum) next Wednesday, August 26.
