Hold Onto Your Faith, Lorde's New 'Green Light' Song/Video Is Here
Oh Lorde, we've been waiting a long time for this. Our beautiful mate from across the Tasman has finally dropped a new track and a clip to go with it. With this also comes the news that a new record, titled Melodrama, will be released mid-2017. Yes!
According to Lorde, the new track 'Green Light' is about her "first major heartbreak." "It's not something that I really am used to writing about," she said in an interview on Zane Lowe's Beats 1. "It took me a while to be able to figure out how to write about that."
In the interview, she gets deeper on the track: "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. I say, 'She thinks you love the beach, you're such a liar'. What the fuck, she thinks you like the beach?! You don't like the beach! It's those little stupid things. It sounds so happy and then the lyrics are so intense obviously. And I realised I was like, 'how come this thing is coming out so joyous sounding?' And I realised this is that drunk girl at the party dancing around crying about her ex-boyfriend who everyone thinks is a mess. That's her tonight and tomorrow she starts to rebuild. And that's the song for me." TBH it's the song for us too. It was always going to be.
Lorde also offered up some intel in a series of tweets:
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
