Lorde Just Dropped Her First New Song (and Music Video) in Years

Lorde Just Dropped Her First New Song (and Music Video) in Years

The video of her new song would be released with a video directed by Grant Singer.

It's been almost four years since Lorde released her debut album, 2013's "Pure Heroine", and in a new interview with Zane Lowe on Apple's Beats 1 radio show she explains the long hiatus between that album and her upcoming followup, the highly anticipated "Melodrama".

The break-up anthem was co-crafted with Canadian producer Frank Dukes and Jack Antonoff - who also worked on her friend Taylor Swift's 1989 - which is why its jaunty, if jarring piano melody in the pre-chorus recalls Antonoff's solo work as Bleachers. I am so proud of this song.

'[It's] about me trying to figure out how to put myself back together [after heartbreak]'.

In 2013, a 16-year-old LORDE quietly, yet confidently asserted herself as the voice of a generation with her full-length debut, Pure Heroine. It's complex and amusing and sad and joyous and it'll make you DANCE.

"'I was like "oh sh*t, this is it.' This was kinda the first thing that we really... all of a sudden everything else we'd written for the record started to make sense", she explained".

The title, "Green Light", refers to a stoplight-esque situation, where the light is turned red but you're ready to go.

Lorde also tweeted about her new music, revealing that her sophomore album will be titled Melodrama along with a link to stream her first single.

"Green Light" locates the universality in a very specific experience, as a truly effective pop gem should. "This is where we begin".

She said creating new music was really about "processing what I wanted to say next and I knew it couldn't be any old thing, it had to be really special and really singular".

"Green Light" is the launching point for this new project; a complex sprawl of emotions and sounds.

According to Lorde, the song was the moment of epiphany for her entire second album. And let me tell you, as much as I love being full noise album cycle girl, it's been a motherfucking joy.
