BONUS: Ellie Goulding Tells Mashable About Her Instagram Music Video

Leading up to this month's album launch, Goulding unleashed a lyric video for Halcyon's lead single, "Anything Could Happen," which was infused with fan-submitted Instagram photos.

"I actually watched it and got quite emotional just because the amount of effort people put into it," she told Mashable after pulling out a smartphone to take an Instagram snap of a New York City sunset during Microsoft and HP's "ARTIST #TALK" event in September.

Goulding said she was surprised that fans submitted more than 1,200 Instagram photos for the video (watch below). Goulding had just joined the photo-sharing site in June before she asked fans to show her some Instagram love.
