Ella Henderson turns into a panther in video for new single Mirror Man – watch

Former X Factor singer says “everyone is desperate” to know the identity of song’s subject

Ella Henderson turns into a panther for the video for her new single Mirror Man.

Henderson, who was nominated for Best British Female at last month’s BRIT Awards, shifts between human and animal form throughout the video for the single, the third to be taken from her album Chapter One.

Mirror Man was written with Al Shux, whose other songwriting credits include Jay-Z and Lana Del Rey. Speaking about the song’s genesis, Henderson said: “It’s about the most self-centred person I’ve ever met. Everyone has experienced that type of person. They love themselves before they can love anyone else. Mirror Man is probably my favourite song to sing live. I’m not about attitude at all, but the song is so honest and rude that everyone loves it, and they’re desperate to discover who Mirror Man is.”

The Lincolnshire singer, who finished sixth in the 2012 series of The X Factor, goes on her first tour this spring as support to Take That.
