Get Ready Team: Lorde Confirms Her New Single Will Drop This Friday

Fans can expect a video to go with the song, directed by Grant Singer.

"Green Light" will be featured on Lorde's highly anticipated sophomore album, Melodrama, due out this summer. It's definitely not a rip-off - Lorde is her own wholly original person, and "Green Light" reflects that - but both songs address heartache, fall under the umbrella of dance pop, and include the same sort of dazzling '80s synths. It earned Lorde two Grammys and an honorary membership in Taylor Swift's squad, and thus raised an uncomfortable question: As the world she'd once been skeptical of swallowed her up, how would Lorde be able to retain that signature defiance?

The tornado of emotions, from hate to heartache to giddy possibility, whirls in three minutes and 55 seconds of jaw-dropping anthem, a song so seamlessly dynamic that it should be taught in music schools.

"And I'm so glad I took that time, because this record is the coolest thing I've ever made".

In 2013, a 16-year-old LORDE quietly, yet confidently asserted herself as the voice of a generation with her full-length debut, Pure Heroine.

The New Zealand artist announced the street displays on Twitter yesterday (February 28), explaining that she had "organised a few little glimpses at what's coming", before directing fans to consult the map of central Auckland.

Jim Cameron is gonna call you, he's read it and loves it.' I was like w-w-wait what!?' Lowe recalled. She continued, "I can't believe he won't be out there on a set somewhere anymore.

'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'.

New Zealand's young music sensation Lorde has finally released the first single from her new album - and it sounds "very different".

"Green Light" enters the market following several days of multi-channel marketing, including a TV spot, a promotional website and in-person visuals.

The single itself lyrically touches on betrayal ("I know about what you did and I wanna scream the truth/She thinks you love the beach, you're such a damn liar")-perhaps the heartbreak Lorde alluded to in a Facebook post in November. I moved out of home, and all of a sudden I was kind of figuring out, Who am I when I'm alone?

If "Green Light" is any indication, her upcoming album is going to be entirely relatable. It's the Lorde equivalent of Robyn's "Call Your Girlfriend" - a glorious female weirdo dancing out her heartbreak against an indifferent landscape.

Facing today's uncertain and troubled times, Lorde just wants us all to dance.
