Lorde may have "grown up" in Melodrama, but she's still youthful as ever in her latest visual from the album—a video of "joy, boredom, pain, self-medication and surreality" (as she described in an Instagram post), of teenagedom and partying all that goes along with it.

Lorde captures that teenaged insouciance and disillusionment ("All of our heroes fading," goes the refrain; perhaps a reference to David Bowie, who proclaimed the young artist was "the future of music") that is so common whilst still dreaming of escape—"Let's go to perfect places," she sings, as the video whirls her across a variety of exotic places. At its finale, however, she muses: "What the fuck are perfect places, anyways?"

The singer also shared a few behind-the-scenes snaps on her Instagram. See her comments and watch the video below.
