Beyoncé stunned us all by dropping a brand new album, but Lorde’s got a few tricks up her sleeve too. This morning (Dec. 13), the teen surprised her fans by releasing “No Better,” a track that isn’t featured on her debut, Pure Heroine.

The trippy, electro pop ditty has the 17-year-old focusing on the summer shenanigans of her and her teenage friends. Lorde details one particular humid night driving around her hometown where it’s so hot that she’s getting stuck to the vinyl seats of the truck she’s rollin’ in. But admits even in the blistering heat she’s still willing to make out with a guy with horribly bad breath.

With a chorus of “Go all the way/Have your fun/Have it all” she encourages everyone to let go a little bit, but advises us not to go too far, chiding, “Get through your days/Do your thing/Do it well.” Because Lorde, like the U.S. Army, wants us to be all that we can be.

Lorde is up for four awards at this year’s GRAMMYs — airing Jan. 26 on CBS — including Record of the Year and Song of the Year for “Royals.”
