Lorde premiered her video for "Mood Ring" in a worldwide livestream, preceded by a 15-minute chat. her third album comes out on Friday - called Solar Power.
Lorde co-directed the clip with Joel Kefali, and prior to premiering it, she explained that the song is intended as satire. She says she wrote it from the perspective of a character who isn't her, though at times she's shared some of her traits. She says she finds the character "very cool" and loves "her vibes."
Lorde dyed her hair blonde for the video. She's joined in it by five other women. Though they don't exactly dance in it -- they're mostly sitting or lying down -- they do show off plenty of choreographed arm and hand movements.
