“It is an honour for me to be chosen to perform at such a prestigious event, and to do it alongside such an incredible artist makes it even better,” Ellie said.
“I’ve been such a huge fan of James & I think he’s just such a great guy. I’m looking forward to performing with someone who will be just as stoked as I am to be at the Grammys for the first time,” Tori said about her duet with James.
The Grammys will air live on Monday, February 15th.
“‘Army‘ is about one of my best friends. She’s been with me since college, and we spend a lot of time on the road together,” Ellie said about the song. “It’s about when I’m with her feeling like I can take on anything.”
“Army” is off Ellie‘s album Delirium, which is available in stores and on iTunes now!
The 29-year-old “On My Mind” singer chatted with the glossy about the status of their relationship, songwriting and more. Check it:
On being in a relationship with someone in the business: “Dougie and I have such different musical worlds, but he understands when I’ve had a tough rehearsal or tough couple of days traveling. I don’t like to rely on him to get me through everything, though. I’m an independent person—I do like to take care of things myself. It’s important to figure out ways of keeping your own Zen.”
On the status of their relationship: “Relationships have their ups and downs. And sometimes, yeah, I want to be left alone. Dougie is respectful of that.”
On her solo songwriting process: “My music and me, it’s such a solitary—I don’t want to say lonely, because that sounds sad—internal thing. It’s hard to explain. Fans say, ‘Oh my God! I love [the song “Lights”]!’ and I’m like, ‘Ah, thank you!’ But in my head I’m thinking, God, if only you knew what I went through to write that.”

Ellie Goulding lets her friend take the lead vocals while performing at her annual “Ellie Goulding and Friends” concert at the Roundhouse in London, England on Wednesday night (December 16).
The 28-year-old “On My Mind” singer gathered her close friends — Years & Years‘ Olly Alexander, Kwabs, MNEK, John Newman and Marcus Mumford for the holiday gig.
“Last night was truly epic. The dedication and good spirits of every person involved really moved me. Every musician who came to perform did so out of the kindness of their hearts, giving up their time for a wonderful cause- once again there were a lot of laughs, some tears, but mostly a lot of Christmas cheer and everyone happy to be raising money for those less fortunate,” Ellie wrote on Instagram.
She added, “I cannot thank them enough. Those people who face Christmas without a family or without a real home were in our thoughts all night. Much love xxx”
Ellie, who’s also pictured out with a friend doing some holiday shopping earlier in the week, also debuted a new cover of “O Holy Night” — listen below and download from her website!
Ellie Goulding shows off her two awards after performing at the 2015 40 Principales Gala Awards held at Palacio de los Deportes Pavilion on Friday night (December 11) in Madrid, Spain.
The 28-year-old “On My Mind” singer picked up the honors for Best New International Artist and Best International Song. Jasmine Thompson also performed at the show.
“It goes without saying that writing a song with someone you are friends with and someone you get on with, you can’t really replace that with anything,” Ellie recently shared about reuniting with rumored flame Niall Horan to write songs.
She added, “I write the best songs with someone I feel truly comfortable with. So, definitely I think it will be a laugh.”
