Hollywood singer Ellie Goulding says she is addicted to exercise, which took control over her life.

Goulding’s new song “Worry About Me” is out now, which was released on 13 March, 2020.

“’Worry About Me’ is a song I wrote reminiscing about a time a guy wanted me at his convenience, just as I was getting over him, the songstress said of the tune. "It is intentionally tongue-in-cheek because I’m not at all bitter, I just found it humorous. It was refreshing to write, in the sunshine of LA, because at the time I was writing dark songs about my state of mind in New York.”

In an interview the singer, 33, opened up about how she felt she had to go to the gym everyday and how her husband and former Olympic rower Caspar Jopling helped her overcome her addiction.

"I don't consider myself to have an addictive personality but I felt as though I did at one point have a gym addiction that was just not fun, I felt I had to go to the gym every single day," Goulding said.

"I don't know whether it was a survival thing, because ­touring was so tiring, so hard, really taxing on your body and your mental health. I felt as though it was a ­survival instinct to be working out all the time, making sure I was super fit, super healthy and tried to counteract having drinks on tour and perhaps not eating very well," she added.

Last year, Goulding shared that she nearly quit music after 10 years of touring left her with anxiety.

She took a four-year hiatus after her 2015 album but Caspar, 28, helped her "rediscover" her passion and create a healthy relationship with exercise.

The singer said she saw "touring as real life" but felt really "inspired by Caspar's amazing willpower and determination".
