Ellie Goulding has done it again. Her latest single, "How Long Will I Love You" is a paean to eternal love that tugs at our hearts strings — and our purse strings, as it has just been announced as the official song for the U.K. charity Children in Need.
Whether or not the singer herself is romantically entangled at present, she sure knows how to hit the mark when it comes to describing that love you feel for someone who just, well, completes you (sorry to get all Jerry Maguire on you, all of a sudden). No wonder the song also appeared in Rom-Com King Richard Curtis's latest movie, About Time, in which a hapless gentleman called Tim struggles with his time travelling abilities and his true love, Mary.
The single is available to pre-order today and will be available to download from November 10, with 20p from each download going to the charity. As the singer explains: "I've grown up watching BBC Children in Need so its fantastic that I'm doing this year's single! It is an emotional song, but in a really positive way, and I've been completely blown away with the positive reaction it's had already."
Watch the video below and prepare to get a little bit emotional — but for a really good cause.
