The repackage of Ellie Goulding’s album ‘Halcyon’ is now in stores in Australia – and as revealed here on the site recently, it includes a cover of Midnight Star’s 1986 hit ‘Midas Touch’, created by London producer Burns.
Ellie became a fan of Burns’ work after hearing a track called ‘Poison’, which he released for Record Store Day in Britain earlier this year.
Naturally, she decided then and there that he was the right man to tackle her long-held desire to record this cover version.
The track has now been blessed with an altogether simple video clip (below), which features a gold mannequin slowly coming to life, touching a nearby stone mannequin in the hope that (here comes the lyric) everything she touches turns to gold. Does it? You’ll have to play to find out.
