The wait is finally over, folks. That's right, nearly four long years after the release of her debut album Pure Heroine, Lorde revealed that she has new music on the way. And lucky for us, it's coming very, very soon. Ahead of the much-awaited release, the 20-year-old entertainer took to Twitter to announce the astounding news with her more than 4.5 million followers, sharing that her single and video for "Green Light" will make their big debut on Thursday, March 2.
There's certainly no doubt that this big revelation is super exciting for fans of the "Royals" songstress. It appears that Lorde, herself, also couldn't contain her excitement over the new project. After months of teasing, she expressed her elation in series of tweets, saying that she was "overjoyed" and "proud" of her sophomore album's lead-out single, that's hitting airwaves shortly.
I don't know about you, but her explanation of the single certainly piqued my curiosity. The New Zealand-born songwriter wrote that the new song is "the first chapter of a story i'm gonna tell you, the story of the last 2 wild, fluorescent years of my life." Hey, I'll be the first to admit that judging from just the description alone, I'm totally here for it all. She also shared this little tidbit, in an effort to describe the feel of the song to fans:
i am so proud of this song. it's very different, and kinda unexpected. it's complex and funny and sad and joyous and it'll make you DANCE— Lorde (@lorde) March 1, 2017
It sure sounds like it's gonna be a bonafide hit, if you ask me. I mean, Lorde certainly knows what she's doing. Her breakthrough album, Pure Heroine, was definitely a huge success, garnering two Grammy Awards, two Billboard Music Awards, one MTV Video Music Award, and three World Music Awards for the then-teenager.
Over the past few months, Lorde has alluded to the genius behind the new music via social media, calling the lyrics the best she's ever written in her life — and after the smash success of her debut, that's certainly saying whole a lot.
Oh, Lorde, I'm so glad to finally have your "Royals" highness back.
