In the clip released on Monday, Goulding, 28, finds herself stuck in a relationship with a controlling man who runs a Las Vegas casino. Eager to turn the tables, the singer teams up with a pal, hops on her horse and heads to her man’s home turf.
“On My Mind” is the first single from Goulding’s upcoming third album, Delirium, out Nov. 6. Prior to its release last week, Goulding told MTV News her new anthem was not inspired by a specific person.
“I probably walked into the studio and I was like, ‘I’ve got this person on my mind,’ and then another writer goes, ‘I’ve got this person on my mind – it’s so annoying,’ and so we kind of formed the song out of all our different experiences,” she explained. “That’s the beauty of song writing; there’s no rules. It doesn’t have to be about one person. It doesn’t have to be about one subject.”
