Lorde attends the 2017 Billboard Music Awards at T-Mobile Arena on May 21, 2017 in Las Vegas. 

Lorde is coming back next month with Melodrama, her long-awaited sophomore album, and she’s just recruited Montreal synth-funk retro-slicksters Chromeo to remix “Green Light,” its volcanic first single.

Somehow, this is the first official remix that Lorde has ever commissioned. And it definitely puts the original song in a different light.

While the original “Green Light” was an explosion of ’80s-pop catharsis, Chromeo turn it into something much, much smoother. They also add a whole lot of slap-bass and some vocoder.

Check out the remix below:

Melodrama is out June 16 on Virgin.
