“Starry Eyed” was the second single from Ellie Goulding’s debut album Lights. It was released on 22nd February 2010 and reached number 4 in the UK Singles Charts. The song is the second track on the album Lights.

Goulding explained the meaning of the song to Digital Spy: “It’s about letting go. As opposed to all the sad and depressing things I write about, I decided to write something about the joining together of people in some kind of euphoric state - be it at a festival, at a show or in a club. I wanted a song that would reach out to people of every background and every enjoyment, whether you enjoy a natural high, taking drugs, drinking or whatever. Because I’m essentially a pop artist I wanted to write a song that everyone can relate to.”

About the inspiration for the video, Goulding said: “I wanted it to be quite simple and down-to-earth to keep focus on the song. I guess it’s just me kind of feeling the vibes. I wanted to be able to have freedom, which I literally do when I float in the air.”

Twenty three year old Ellie Goulding was awarded the Critics Choice Award at this years Brits, an accolade held by Florence + the Machine and Adele in previous years so a great omen of things to come! ‘Starry Eyed’ is the second track to be released from Ellie’s debut album ‘Lights’, it reached No.4 in February 2010.
