She described the track as "unexpected," and in true Lorde fashion, said that it will make you dance your ass off.

i am so proud of this song. it's very different, and kinda unexpected. it's complex and funny and sad and joyous and it'll make you DANCE

This, in fact, turns out to be true.

And revealed that her new music tells the story of the past two ~wild~ years of her life. Yes, Lorde, I'm listening.

it's the first chapter of a story i'm gonna tell you, the story of the last 2 wild, fluorescent years of my life. this is where we begin

And now, like a pre-Friday treat, the single and music video have officially been released (!!!!!!!).

And holy shit, it's so damn good.

So good that it might make you transcend time and space for a second...

@lorde just heard it and I felt like I was outside of this universe for a sec ✨

...make you go through every emotion you've ever felt all within a 30-second timespan...

...and make you want to shrink yourself into a cute lil' music note so you can live inside the song forever.

@lorde i actually want to be a song written by you
