And Ellie Goulding took some time out of her busy schedule as she relaxed in Los Angeles on Thursday.

The Starry Eyed hitmaker, 32, set pulses racing as she showcased her toned bikini body in a strapless bikini while stretching out on an alfresco sofa.

The sultry black and white snap showed the songstress exhibiting her taut abs in a dark bandeau bikini with gold fastenings as she placed her arms behind her head and stared into the distance.

A pair of matching high-waisted bottoms drew the eye to her endless lithe legs.

The star wore her blonde locks tousled and showcased her radiant complexion by going make-up free,

The photo comes after the release of Ellie's music video saw  her reminiscing about her youth, as she reflected on her rebellious teenage years with her best friend.

Played by Molly Gudz and Emily Venus, the nostalgic clip saw a young representation of Ellie and her pal engage in underage drinking, smoking, and partying.

And as the teenagers partied, kissed boys, and got matching heart tattoos on their chests, in the current day Ellie sang and danced in her car alongside her friend, played by Watson Rose.

Of the song, the singer gushed: 'I’m so excited to share Sixteen with everyone. That age was such a pivotal year for me in many ways and this song is so close to my heart. 

'It takes me back to the reckless days of being a teenager and I hope it reminds us all about the innocence of youth.'

Ellie announced her engagement to art dealer Caspar Jopling in August last year. 

The Grammy Award-nominated singer previously admitted she was struggling to find the time to plan her big day and had enlisted the help of a wedding planner.

Speaking to Hits Radio's Sarah-Jane Crawford, Ellie said: 'I've got someone helping me do it, but I'm trying to focus on getting the album out. So its kind of a whole other ball game.'

Ellie and Caspar shared their engagement news with an announcement in The Times in August 2018 after 18 months together.

It read: 'The engagement is announced between Caspar, son of The Hon Nicholas Jopling of Yorkshire and Mrs Jayne Warde-Aldam of Yorkshire, and Elena, daughter of Mr Arthur Goulding of Hertfordshire and Mrs Tracey Sumner of West Midlands.'

Former GB rower Caspar is currently an art dealer at Sotheby's in New York.

The singer was previously thought to be in a relationship with Bobby Rich - a Judo champion who later became David and Victoria Beckham's bodyguard.

Before that, Ellie enjoyed an on-off two-year relationship with McFly star Dougie Poynter - but the pair split in 2016

The pop star has previously dated Skrillex, Greg James, Jeremy Irvine and Prince Harry, and she has been linked to Niall Horan and Ed Sheeran.
