Lorde Grows Up in Highly Anticipated Song/Video 'Green Light'

    Well, well, well... The moment we've all been waiting for is finally here. If you're like me, you were impatiently sitting at your computer counting down the minutes until 2pm, when Lorde's first single in nearly 4 years was scheduled to drop, and now "Green Light" is officially here. Along with the song also came a video and a title for her sophomore album: Melodrama.

    There's a lot to prematurely unpack here, but the overall verdict is good. Really good. I can already hear her day one fans crying now, "this isn't Lorde!" and "she's sold out!" But let's stop right there: good artists do not make the same thing for the entire duration of their career. If Lorde put out something creepy and slow, similar to her debut, it'd probably be a little depressing to see that she has not grown at all in the last 3-4 years. A new album calls for a new era.

    Everything about this is different. She ditched the flinch-y dance moves, the all-black wardrobe, the crazy hair, lyrics about being a kid, and slow-burning sonics. With the death of that came the birth of refreshingly new attributes: color, confidence, movement, and bite. Channeling her inner Kate Bush both stylistically and musically, Lorde's new attitude is artful and euphoric - almost cinematic at times. Really, it's another song about heartbreak, but no one sings about heartbreak quite like Lorde does. She once was a quivering, in-love teenager who wrote about staying young, but now she's a cool, mature woman who has finally been through enough shit to write about. And most importantly, she didn't lose what she has always had (as the album title suggests): drama.
