Finally! Lorde has announced her first single in two years called ‘Green Light’.
The singer has been teasing fans on social media all week, but finally confirmed what they were hoping for: new music. “I am so overjoyed to finally announce that my first single, GREEN LIGHT, is coming out tomorrow at 8am nz / 2pm nyc,” she tweeted.
SHe launched a new website that gave viewers a glimpse of her riding in a car with dance-like beats playing in the background.
Another teaser showed her dancing her heart out in a club to her own vocals. Now, we finally understand why.
“I am so proud of this song. it’s very different, and kinda unexpected,” she continued to tweet. “It’s complex and funny and sad and joyous and it’ll make you DANCE. It’s the first chapter of a story i’m gonna tell you, the story of the last 2 wild, fluorescent years of my life. this is where we begin.”
Lorde also announced that the single would be released with a video directed by Grant Singer.
Last year, she opened up about her forthcoming album on Facebook, spilling emotional details of what’s to come.
“Sometime in the last year or so, part of me crossed over,” she wrote. “For one thing, I made a very deliberate choice to withdraw for a little while from a public life…As much as I love being full noise album cycle girl, it’s been a motherf–king joy.”
