(RADIO.COM) – Lorde referred to the narrator in her first single, “Green Light,” from her upcoming record, Melodrama, as “that drunk girl at the party dancing around, crying about her ex-boyfriend, who everyone thinks is a mess. That’s her tonight and tomorrow she starts to rebuild.”
“With a party, there’s that moment where a great song comes on and you’re ecstatic,” she explained, “and then there’s that moment later on where you’re alone in the bathroom, looking in the mirror, you don’t think you look good, and you start feeling horrible.”
Melodrama is set to release June 16. Lorde is scheduled to perform at Outside Lands in San Francisco this summer.
