Lorde – “Green Light (Chromeo Remix)

Lorde is coming back next month with Melodrama, her long-awaited sophomore album, and she’s just recruited Montreal synth-funk retro-slicksters Chromeo to remix “Green Light,” its volcanic first single. Somehow, this is the first official remix that Lorde has ever commissioned. And it definitely puts the original song in a different light. While the original “Green Light” was an explosion of ’80s-pop catharsis, Chromeo turn it into something much, much smoother. They also add a whole lot of slap-bass and some vocoder. Check out the remix below.

Melodrama is out 6/16 on Virgin.
