Since then, the singer has released a handful of songs on movie soundtracks, including “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” soundtrack, which she also curated.
It’s a great moment in a video for a song I’m shockingly not in love with. It’s also described the singer as complex, funny, sad and joyous. We’ll be eagerly watching for more singles and news about the new album, so keep checking back in for all the Lorde updates you need.
Lorde signed to a label at age 13 and released her first album at age 16. Fans ended up at Herne Bay beach to find the song’s lyrics being emitted from a lightbox as green lights lit the surroundings. “This is where we begin”, Lorde tweeted yesterday.
People have particularly been anticipating something new from Lorde ever since Saturday Night Live announced she’d be the musical guest on March 11. Lorde’s new song might have come after a four-year hiatus, but it sounds both fresh and familiar. She dances in the club, she dances on the street, she dances on the roof of her vehicle service ― though, who hasn’t danced on the roof of an Uber?
According to the 20 year old New Zealander, her new album’s music will recapture “the last 2 wild florescent years of [her] life”.
“I am so proud of this song, “wrote Lorde on Twitter“.
“I do my makeup in somebody else’s vehicle”, she sings over a minor key piano.
“And then I wrote a record about it, all of it, so much more than what I’ve written down here, and I’m in NY getting it done”, she added.
After what has felt like a very long absence from the music scene, Lorde has finally returned with a new single entitled “Green Light”.
