"I am so proud of this song," the singer wrote on Twitter on Wednesday. "It's very different, and kinda unexpected. 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 is the subject of the video, singing dramatically into a bathroom mirror, dancing on a car, and dancing in a club to a beat that is alternatively somber and upbeat. It's exactly what she promised. We are definitely dancing.
"Finally, here it is: the first single from my sophomore album, Melodrama..." she wrote. While Pure Heroine, her debut, was an incredible first act, this one is poised to be even better. We don't know exactly when the remaining songs on this album are coming, but that's okay, because we won't be getting tired of "Green Light" any time soon.
