Pop star Lorde released a new song “Green Light” in accordance with an announcement of her sophomore album, Melodrama, which is to be released this summer. She hasn’t released an album since her smash hit 2013 debut Pure Heroine. The twenty year-old New Zealander’s new album will focus on the beginnings of adulthood. In an interview on Beats 1 last week, she said “I was kind of figuring out who am I when I’m alone? Who am I when I’m doing things just for myself? And I feel like you can really hear that on this record.” Hopefully her new album can live up to the success, and influence of her previous work.
