Ellie Goulding drops lavish “Close to Me” video

Spoiler alert: You’ll want to buy a ticket to Budapest.

Ellie Goulding recently made her return to music with “Close to Me,” a laid-back bop featuring Swae Lee of Rae Sremmurd, and Diplo. Now, she’s brought the song to life with a lavish visual.

Filmed in Budapest, the stylish video sees our leading lady striking poses around the Hungarian capital, dressed in outfits lifted straight from the pages of Vogue. She’s joined by a troupe of dancers throughout the clip, one of whom might even be the subject of the song (you know, the one Goulding wants to keep close to her). Even Swae Lee shows up for his verse. Diplo, however, is missing from the picture.

Regardless, it’s a feast for the eyes, and it’ll probably make you want to book a flight to Budapest ASAP. Check it out below:
