Lorde's First New Song in Almost Two Years Is Finally Here

Posted March 03, 2017

In the video, which was directed by Grant Singer, Lorde is rocking a sexy pink cocktail dress as she paints the town, well, pink.

"Green Light" is the first track to be lifted from Lorde's sophomore album, Melodrama, which is yet to have a confirmed release date.

Green Light was the first single to be released in the lead up to an expected second album from the pop star.

"I am so proud of this song, "wrote Lorde on Twitter". The album would go triple-platinum, win two GRAMMY® Awards, and spawn the seven-times platinum record-breaking global juggernaut single, "Royals", and quadruple-platinum follow up "Team." The former cemented LORDE as "the youngest solo artist and the only New Zealander to achieve #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 since 1987".

Nintendo Switch game cartridges taste awful on objective
If history serves, Nintendo consoles can stay off store shelves for months - even the Wii U was pretty hard to find for a while. But one seldom-discussed area in which the Nintendo Switch excels is in getting kids not to eat the goddamn cartridges.

Lorde joined Bowie's band onstage for "Life on Mars?" - a stunning version of the late performer's song.

'[It's] about me trying to figure out how to put myself back together [after heartbreak]'. It's complex and amusing and sad and joyous and it'll make you DANCE, ' she wrote on Twitter this week. You can check out more of the lyrics at Genius, along with some explanations, but here's a sneak peek of her written brilliance.

"Green Light" sees the 20-year-old channeling her lyrical introspection outward, into a moment of glorious, gospel-flecked dance-pop. "This is where we begin". Lorde tweeted some pictures from the Auckland events featuring the auto, sand and the lyrics all bathed in green neon light. Knowing Lorde, it likely will be.

If "Green Light" is any indication, her upcoming album is going to be entirely relatable. Whoever thought Lorde couldn't top her energetic and incomparable debut album clearly thought wrong. "And this stuff that we've made I just really feel like we've pushed each other to make stuff that is better than anything either of us have ever done".
