Lorde unveils new single 'Green Light'

Lorde unveils new single 'Green Light'

Director Grant Singer had also directed music videos for Taylor Swift and The Weekend.

"Green Light" is about Lorde's first real experience with heartbreak, and looks like she's recovering just fine.

Lorde just released her first song since 2014. A short video also showed two dates, "3.2.17 NYC" and "3.3.17 NZ", while a short clip from what is thought to be the new song can also be heard playing.

Lorde's been dying to tell you a story almost four years in the making. As the singer herself promised, the song is meant to make a person dance, and it accomplishes that goal perfectly without forcing Lorde to cave to any trend in pop or dance. You can check out more of the lyrics at Genius, along with some explanations, but here's a sneak peek of her written brilliance.

Tupac Shakur's death vehicle on sale
At the time of the drive-by shooting which ultimately claimed Shakur's life, the vehicle was owned by his manager, Suge Knight . The asking price is $1.5 million if you're in the market for a vehicle that a famous rapper was shot in.

Matchroom adds JD ahead of Haye-Bellew contest
There is little or no chance of this fight going the distance, but while it lasts it should definitely live up to the hype. I can understand what those fans are talking about. "He's extremely shook and that is the best way of saying it".

Reliable stocks in today's share market: Marathon Oil Corporation (NYSE:MRO)
The company reported $0.43 earnings per share for the quarter, beating the Thomson Reuters' consensus estimate of $0.26 by $0.17. Susquehanna Bancshares Inc reaffirmed a "neutral" rating on shares of Marathon Oil in a report on Wednesday, December 7th.

The upbeat track is a distinctly new sound for the 20-year-old, one that she described as "very different and kind of unexpected" in a series of tweets on Thursday. "Green Light" may be more "pop" than "alt", but we're confident this so-called "new chapter" will bring plenty of promise. "This is where we begin", Lorde tweeted yesterday.

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 into the city and I made new friends and started to realize that no-one is just good or bad, that everyone is both. In the video, she dances around town shaking her legendary head of hair under lights of varying colors.

Nearly four years ago, "Royals" - the debut single from the precocious, lion-maned New Zealand teen who had the audacity to introduce herself as Lorde - became the first song by a woman to top Billboard's Alternative Songs chart in 17 years. "The green light thing is saying "I'm not okay right now but I'm going to be okay". Whoever thought Lorde couldn't top her energetic and incomparable debut album clearly thought wrong.
