Look, I wasn’t feeling Ellie Goulding’s Delirium, but lead single “On My Mind” is undeniable — basically a grade-A Police song infused with diva-pop bravado. When Goulding brought “On My Mind” to The Tonight Show last night, that reggae/new wave undercurrent was even more pronounced, and the studio shine was scaled back. It’s a reminder of how much Goulding’s version of pop tends to resemble rock music when she takes a festival stage. Watch the performance below.
Delirium is out now on Cherrytree/Interscope.
