Lorde reveals David Bowie was inspiration for her second album

Lorde reveals David Bowie was inspiration for her second album”

While "Pure Heroine" contained tracks dripping in teen angst, "Green Light" showcases a more mature Lorde who is able to dance off her heartbreak.

The Lyrics:Those great whites, they have big teeth/ Oh, they bite you.

"Green Light" sees the 20-year-old channeling her lyrical introspection outward, into a moment of glorious, gospel-flecked dance-pop. "With the first taste of sophomore album Melodrama, Lorde has entered her prime and hit her mark".

"Green Light" is, like all of Melodrama, a collaboration with Jack Antonoff - a fact that will probably garner it (somewhat justifiable) comparisons to Taylor Swift's "Out of the Woods".

Lorde is no longer a teenager and her music is truly showing that.

It sounds so happy and then the lyrics are so intense obviously. "And that's the song for me", she said. I say, "She thinks you love the beach, you're such a liar".

It's hard to create a breakup song that's actually light and joyful, but Lorde nailed it with her hotly-anticipated comeback track "Green Light".

Of course, this endeavor into the unknown sounds effortless; like Lorde's best songs, "Green Light" lands like a sucker punch on the first listen, and different details emerge on the 20th. In 2013, Billboard reported that she was the first female solo artist to top Billboard's Nielsen BDS-based Alternative Songs chart in more than 17 years.

The New Yorker magazine said, "heartbreak has given a much-needed shock to her system".

"I knew I couldn't make the same thing again, and I had to figure out what it was that I wanted to say". "There's definitely moments where it's like, 'Oh, she really went there'". In "Green Light' she does her makeup - an act undertaken in private spaces, or spaces of familiarity - in a stranger's vehicle".

Reflecting on the difference between LA, New York and Auckland, she spoke of her love for her hometown. But even if this song isn't entirely representative of the new album, I have a feeling that Melodrama will still be witty and weird and scary and lovely, like everything Lorde does.
