So much good Lorde news, so little time. On Thursday, revered recording artist and self-proclaimed non-royal Lorde shared the cover art and title for her highly anticipated second album. “Green Light is officially out in the world, and i am so pleased to share with you that this song is the first from my sophomore record, Melodrama,” the singer-songwriter posted on Instagram, “this is the cover, painted by sam mckinniss. welcome to the new world.”
This album art and title post is not the only awesome Ella Yelich-O'Connor content to hit the internet on March 2: Lorde also released the music video for new song "Green Light." A fresh jam, a fresh music video, a fresh album cover, and a fresh album title all on the same day? Consider me overwhelmed by this wonderful bounty.
Melodrama will be Lorde's first album since 2013 release Pure Heroine, her critically acclaimed and award-winning debut full-length record, and lead single "Green Light" is her first solo song since Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1 tune "Yellow Flicker Beat." Suffice to say, we fans have been looking forward to this moment for a while, and the wildly catchy and vibrant "Green Light" was beyond worth the wait. Same can be said about the music video, the album art, and the album title. Stoked to see what else Lorde has in store for us.
You can check out the Melodrama cover below.
And here's the terrific music video for the terrific "Green Light."
I'm not saying I'm going to go dance atop a car right now, but I'm not not saying that.
