It has been four years since Lorde released her first and only album, Pure Heroine, but the latest one is on its way and its going to be called Melodrama. With funky tunes, clever lyrics, and iconic influences, Lorde has created a true masterpiece – and can’t wait for the world to hear it! With the release of one song so far, Green Light, Lorde says that the album is about the feelings she has felt over the last few years of her life, which led to a very colourful and vibrant lifestyle. She partied a lot, figured out where she wanted to be, and generally loved life by the sounds of it.
Lorde released her newest song just yesterday titled Green Light. The song has a pop beat to it and she says it’s the most upbeat song on the album. The song tells a tale of her recent romance which ended in heartbreak. The singer-songwriter has created a tune that is both emotional and dance worthy.
In a recent interview, Lorde mentioned how David Bowie has influenced much of her upcoming album. With his quirky lyrics and genius songwriting, Bowie has always had a big influence on the singer. She mentioned that he was always in her thoughts and in her heart during both the time she spent writing songs and when she was in the studio recording the album. David Bowie was a huge fan of Lorde himself and even said that she was the “future of music”. Last year, Lorde sang at a tribute to David Bowie, which was beautifully done.
