WATCH: Lorde releases new music video - and it's EMOTIONAL

Lorde's official video for her new single Green Light is here.

The singer dropped her first new music in three years on Thursday, and the new single is upbeat, catchy and electric.

The 20-year-old looks completely grown-up in the music video for the first single off her sophomore album, Melodrama.

In the video, she dances on top of an SUV, romps through the empty city streets and whips her hair around in the bathroom of a club. After a long night, she stands on a bridge at sunset in the final scene.


The New Zealand native spoke to Apple Beats 1 about how the inspiration for her new album was heartbreak.

"It took me a while to be able to figure out how to write about that. It was my first major heartbreak. And the song is really about those moments kind of immediately after your life changes and about all the silly little things that you gravitate towards.

"I realised this is that drunk girl at the party dancing around crying about her ex-boyfriend who everyone thinks is a mess.

"That's her tonight, and tomorrow she starts to rebuild. And that's the song for me."
