In 2013, 16-year old Lorde blew the world away with her debut Heroine. The album went triple-platinum thanks to the smash hit “Royals” and won two GRAMMY® Awards, solidifying the singer-songwriter in the music scene before she was could legally vote. It’s been almost three years since we’ve heard new music and now, Lorde’s highly anticipated new single “Green Light” has dropped. The track has the familiar, angtsy beginning Lorde was known for, but soon the song crescendos into a jubilant, upbeat dance track. Check out the video below:
“Green Light” is the debut track off her upcoming sophomore album Melodrama, due out this summer. The single was produced by Lorde and Jack Antonoff, member of fun. and Bleachers. Antonoff clearly brought his talent for uplifting, theatrical pop to the single, pushing Lorde’s darker lyrics into the light. It’s a sad story of a failed relationship and the effort to move on set to infectious dance music.
Lorde is set to perform at festivals like Coachella and Bonnaroo this spring. Keep your eyes out for the anticipated national tour that will accompany the release of Melodrama. If “Green Light” is any indication, we are in store for another wave of pop perfection from this talented artist.
