The internet has just discovered a video of our lord and saviour Lorde creating her hit track Green Light, and we’re all fucking obsessed.
It’s been a few years since Lorde blessed our souls, hearts and eardrums back in 2017 with the release of her second studio Melodrama, but it turns out we’re still not over it.
In a video shared on Twitter, Lorde (real name Ella Marija Lani Yelich-O’Connor) can be seen working her magic in the studio.

The video has amassed more than 77,000 likes and nearly 1,000,000 views since being posted on April 18, proving that we truly love one (1) woman.
It’s been a long three years since Lorde (now 23) last blessed us with new music, but considering New Zealand is currently in a coronavirus lockdown, we might get a new album soon.
Back in June 2019, Lorde confirmed she had “a third one in the oven” on the second anniversary of Melodrama. However, she then announced in November that the album would be delayed after the death of her beloved dog Pearl.
“So I’m asking for your patience, as 2020 comes around and you start to wonder where the next record is. I have lost my boy, and I need some time to see the good again, to finish making this for you. It won’t be the same work— as anyone who has felt loss can understand, there’s a door that opens that you step through, and everything is different on the other side. But when this great loss crystallises inside me, and my chest rebuilds around it, hopefully I’ll be able to finish up, and share it with you, and we’ll all grow together, as we always do.”
Rumours have already swirled of new Lorde music this year after musician Porches shared a snippet of what sounded like a new song featuring her iconic vocals.

A third album is definitely on it’s way, but we’ve just gotta be patient. In the meantime, you can enjoy watching her craft Green Light until we eventually have new music to enjoy.
The now-viral clip is taken from an interview for the documentary Anthems: New Zealand’s Iconic Hits. You can peep the whole interview on YouTube if you’re in the mood to feel some real emotions. Warning: this video will likely have you crying about how much you love Lorde.
