The video shows off a new look for Lorde, with the singer sitting on a bed at the start of the video with a hairdo resembling a quiff.

She later shows off her twitchy, witchy dance moves while dressed in red in the middle of a fog-filled street.

The singer teased the release of the video yesterday with a series of tweets and stills from the video.
