Good LORDE. When is the last time you got chills from a pop song? For me it was when I first heard the new Lorde single “Green Light” yesterday. I subsequently watched the music video on repeat for the rest of the day until finally buying the single to just accept putting the song on repeat was the way to go. In the words of my good friend Scott, “Praise the LORDE AND MELODRAMA. BLEST”. For us, this new Lorde single is our 2017 Robyn, “Dancing On My Own” and a no-shame dance-a-thon happens no matter where we are when this song comes on.
Scott of course was referring to the name of the highly anticipated new Lorde album, Melodrama. “Green Light” is the first single we are hearing from this new Lorde masterpiece. “Green Light” is the epic, anthemic pop song of the year you can’t help but move to and get moved by. The single is produced by musical genius Jack Antonoff (Bleachers, Steel Train, FUN.) and he makes brief appearance in the video playing the piano. The duo met up in October 2015 and proceeded to recorded the album together over 10 months, mostly in Antonoff’s home studio and portions in NYC’s Jimi Hendrix-founded Electric Lady Studios. If this first single is any insight, this new album is going to be a massive, moving, story-telling, body-moving soundtrack of the year.
