Ellie Goulding & Tinie Tempah: “Wonderman”

[kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/HvFZJFf8S6Y" width="550" height="445" allowfullscreen="true" fvars="fs=1" /]

This track from two of UK’s brightest shining stars, Ellie Goulding and Tinie Tempah, was released with an awesome space-travelling video, but said video is not available to watch in the US. To be fair, we’re just offering this audio here until we get some more from Ellie and her upcoming album Lights. But if you’re elsewhere, outside the US, google this mofo to watch the video.

Buy the “Wonderman” single from Tinie Tempah’s album Disc-overy on iTunes (not you, US), and check Ellie Goulding’s North American tour dates here.
