Lorde Announces New Album, New Single and New Music Video, All in One Day

Lorde is back with her brand new single “Green Light” and a music video to boot, but these releases are only the beginning of her return.

The singer debuted the new track and the music video on Thursday (Mar. 2, 2017) and announced that 2017 will bring her sophomore album, Melodrama.

“Green Light is officially out in the world, and i am so pleased to share with you that this song is the first from my sophomore record, Melodrama. this is the cover, painted by sam mckinniss. welcome to the new world,” she wrote in the caption of the album artwork below.

Lorde spoke with Zane Lowe on Beats 1 about “Green Light,” which was co-written with Jack Antonoff and Joel Little, her primary collaborator on Pure Heroin.

“The song is actually about a heartbreak,” Lorde told Apple Music. “And it’s not something that I really am used to writing about … It was my first major heartbreak. And the song is really about those moments kind of immediately after your life changes and about all the silly little things that you gravitate towards.”
