Lorde Delivers New Dance-Driven Track “Green Light” As First Release In Years + Music Video

Lorde Green Light

20-year-old singer Lorde quickly rose to fame back in 2013 following her hit single “Royals” and her incredibly successful, impressive debut album Pure Heroine. She built on this momentum getting a Flume remix and collaborating with Disclosure as she won over music fans around the world. Now after years of not releasing music, the talented singer has finally shared her first new single “Green Light” and announced her new album will be titled Melodrama, see artwork below.

“Green Light” takes a much more dance-driven direction than her previous releases and it's sounding like a natural progression for Lorde. The track builds in energy leading up to the chorus, which packs a bouncing piano chord melody and very catchy vocals.

Lorde joined Zane Lowe to premiere the track on Beats 1 and did an interview to speak about what she's been up to since we last heard from her. Lorde revealed she's been working on her project closely alongside Jack Antonoff, who's worked with bands like Bleachers and Fun. She also said she was actually credited as a producer on every song off her forthcoming album. Enjoy!

"Green Light" had an interesting rollout as Lorde had been teasing the song in short TV commercials as well as recently tweeting fans locations in New Zealand to hear part of the song as part of a scavenger hunt. At these locations including a beach, fans also found an appropriate green light theme where there were green smoked-filled parked cars and lit up messages of lyrics from the song. Lorde is also set to perform on SNL March 11 as well as upcoming festival performances including Coachella, Bonnaroo, Governor's Ball. Enjoy!

A-Trak recently hopped on a song with British producer Jamie Lidell to create the magical track "We All Fall Down." Now A-Trak has turned his sights towards Disclosure's massive hit with Lorde titled "Magnets." Disclosure themselves remixed the song not too long ago and now A-Trak has stepped up to offer his own take on the track.

Morphing the song into an electro-house banger with the addition of killer synth work and bombastic drums, A-Trak kicks "Magnets" into overdrive. Check out his remix below and make sure to watch the original song's music video if you haven't yet.
