Lorde returns with new music video & single 'Green Light'

Lorde returns with new music video & single 'Green Light'

If Lorde's voice and music has moved you in any way in the past, her newest is just what you've been waiting for even if you think you haven't been.

In addition to the enthusiasm one would expect for a new Lorde single, "Green Light" received special launch-day support from the iHeartMedia stations at the pop, hot adult contemporary and alternative formats.

The song is unlike anything the "Royals", singer has done in the past and as it turns out, there may be a major reason for that. 'I feel like the whole time I spent writing this record I've had him in my thoughts, I've had him in my heart, ' she said on Radio 1.

The now 20-year-old New Zealander announced a second album called "Melodrama", her follow-up to 2013's "Pure Heroine" which won her phenomenal success while still a teenager. It took me a while to be able to figure out how to write about that. "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", she said.

So what do you need to know about "Green Light"?

"There's definitely moments where it's like "oh, she really went there". ' What the f-, she thinks you like the beach?! I had to tell the truth so starkly to myself and to my friends and people around me. "It's those little stupid things". She explained that the song is told from the point of viewpoint of a drunk girl, who is at a party, dancing and crying over her ex-boyfriend, and everyone thinks she is a mess. That's her tonight and tomorrow she starts to rebuild.

But despite the growing up, living in Los Angeles, falling in and out of love and finding new family in New York, Lorde revealed she has every intention of coming home.

Lorde became the youngest solo artist to achieve a United States number one single on the Billboard Hot 100 since Tiffany's I Think We're Alone Now in 1987.
