The wait is finally over. As teased all week, Lorde makes a triumphant return today with Green Light, the first single from her upcoming sophomore album.

The opening chords suggests it’s going to another moody, intense ballad, but it quickly morphs into a euphoric house stomper. However, in an NZ radio interview this morning, she warned that Green Light was not indicative of the new album’s overall sound. “The whole album definitely doesn’t sound like Green Light – that’s kind of a curve ball I would say,” she said.

Her as yet untitled follow-up to 2013’s Pure Heroine will be released this winter. Check out the video for Green Light below.
