lorde-kanye-west-flicker

Yellow Flicker Beat” is a song by New Zealand recording artist Lorde. Written by Lorde and Joel Little and produced by Paul Epworth, the song was released on September 29th 2014 as the lead single from the soundtrack for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 by Republic Records.

A music video for the song was directed by Emily Kai Bock and was released on November 7th 2014. Four days later, the makeover of the song titled “Flicker (Kanye West Rework)” co-produced by Lorde and Kanye West was released.

The track was well-received by music critics, who praised its lyrical content for being more mature than that of Lorde’s previous releases. Commercially, “Yellow Flicker Beat” peaked at number seventy four on the US Billboard Hot 100 and entered the record charts of several nations, including Australia, Canada and New Zealand.

“Yellow Flicker Beat”, which features an electronic production, is characterised as an art pop and electropop song. Its style was compared to that of Lorde’s earlier releases such as her song “Biting Down” from The Love Club EP (2013) and her debut studio album Pure Heroine (2013). The lyrics of the track reference the rise of The Hunger Games ’​ heroine Katniss Everdeen.

Lorde is scheduled to perform the song at the 2014 American Music Awards on 23 November 23rd 2014.

Lyrics for Lorde – Flicker (Kanye West Rework)

I’m a princess cut from marble, smoother than a storm
And the scars that mark my body, they’re silver and gold
My blood is a flood of rubies, precious stones
It keeps my veins hot, the fires find a home in me
I move through town, I’m quiet like a fire
And my necklace is of opal, I tie it and untie it

And our people talk to me, but nothing ever hits
So people talk to me, and all the voices just burn holes
I’m going in (ooh)

This is the start of how it all ever ends
They used to shout my name, now they whisper it
I’m speeding up and this is the
Red, orange, yellow flicker beat sparking up my heart
We rip the start, the colors disappear
I never watch the stars there’s so much down here
So I just try to keep up with them
Red, orange, yellow flicker beat sparking up my heart

I dream all year, but they’re not the same kinds
And the shivers move down my shoulder blades in double time

And now people talk to me I’m slipping out of reach now
People talk to me, and all their faces blur
But I got my fingers laced together and I made a little prison
And I’m locking up everyone that ever laid a finger on me
I’m going in (ooh)

This is the start of how it all ever ends
They used to shout my name, now they whisper it
I’m speeding up and this is the
Red, orange, yellow flicker beat sparking up my heart
We rip the start, the colors disappear
I never watch the stars there’s so much down here
So I just try to keep up with them
Red, orange, yellow flicker beat sparking up my heart

And this is the red, orange, yellow flicker beat
Sparking up my heart
And this is the red, orange, yellow flicker beat-beat-beat-beat
