After almost four years since her iconic album Pure Heroine, Lorde is now back on the radar with new song, Green Light. The New Zealand singer-songwriter has stepped up her game with the release, going in a slightly different direction with a more upbeat tempo. In the music video, you see Lorde dancing through the streets at night, a definite foreshadow of what you'll be doing once you listen to the number.

With lyrics like I know about what you did and I wanna scream the truth / She thinks you love the beach, you're such a damn liar, Lorde's Green Light makes for a go-to break-up song and the artist has said that it's based on her own experiences. The song's already getting rave reviews with celebrity friends like Katy Perry and Paramore's Hayley Williams tweeting their approval.

Green Light is part of Lorde's sophomore album Melodrama that's slated to come out in the summer.
