After teasing fans yesterday, Lorde made good on her promise of new music. The 20-year-old Kiwi singer shared the link to "Perfect Places" a few hours ago via Twitter. The electro-pop anthem marries Lorde's famously minimalistic sound with the new, energetic vibe that fans hear on "Green Light."

Despite still being concerned with the angst of being young—she sings "I'm 19 and I'm on fire, but when we're dancing I'm alright / It's just another graceless night"—the song is concerned with the search for a perfect place, whatever that might mean. Lorde herself knows the search is fruitless, and it's heartbreaking to hear: the song's last line ponders "What the fuck are perfect places, anyway?"

Lorde is set to release Melodrama on June 16. Stream "Perfect Places" below.
