Arriving out of a clear blue sky during the 7pm news/soaps came a maddeningly short slice of the first single from Lorde’s second album, out this Friday, 3 March.

Lorde previewed the first single from her forthcoming album across New Zealand’s major TV channels on Monday night.

Here’s everything we know: It’s upbeat, got cool house piano and is out 3 March 2017. Check it out:
