Good evening readers, welcome back to MikeyMix! Minutes ago teen-queen of alternative music Lorde released the first track ‘Green Light’ from her highly anticipated sophomore album ‘Melodrama’.
I haven’t been this excited for a track release since Lady Gaga released ‘Perfect Illusion’ back in August so the minute the clock struck 7 (UK time) I quickly opened up Apple Music and played the track as soon as I can.
As promised the 3 minute 54 second track is different to anything Lorde has ever released and this risk has definitely worked in her favour!
Everything about this track is perfect in my opinion: the beat sounds fresh and has a good balance of fast and slow, the lyrics are clever (in true Lorde fashion) and the voice acts as the icing on the cake and truly compliments the beat and lyrics.
Although it’s only been released for about fifteen minutes I’ve had this song on repeat as I am enjoying it so much, the song was definitely worth the wait and I am so excited to see what this new era brings as if this song is anything to go by it’s going to be good!
I’ll be giving this track a 5 out of 5 star rating as the minute it began I fell in love and can tell I will be listening to it non-stop for the next few days.
The track is available for purchase on iTunes and is available for streaming on all streaming sites: Apple Music, Spotify and Tidal.
The music video for the track was also released at the same time as the song and can be found below:
