LISTEN: Lorde Releases New Song and Announces Album

March 2, 2017

After teasing its release for a while, Lorde has dropped her new song, "Green Light."

"Green Light" is the first new song that Lorde has released since dropping her 2013 album, Pure Heroine. This is definitely a break from her typical sound, but that was to be expected. Take this tweet she sent yesterday, for example: "i am so proud of this song. it's very different, and kinda unexpected. it's complex and funny and sad and joyous and it'll make you DANCE." Either way, we're loving the upbeat vibes and Lorde's fresh-faced look in the music video. 

And as far as albums go, "Green Light" is the first single off the forthcoming Melodrama. There aren't too many details out about the upcoming album yet, but the singer confirmed the news on Twitter. 

If you're looking for a live performance of this song, we can probably expect one next weekend. Lorde is scheduled to appear as the musical guest on the March 11 episode of Saturday Night Live, and we're presuming she'll perform "Green Light."
