The new music video for Lorde's "Yellow Flicker Beat"--from the Hunger Games: MockingjayPart 1 soundtrack--features the teenaged signature showing off her now signature dance moves in a variety of empty locales, from a darkened pool to a motel room. Emily Kai Bock directs.

Bock explains about the video's intention, "I wrote [Lorde] a treatment with a bunch of these kind of set ideas, of things that could live within a dark void of a large vacant space, under a singular light--a motel room, a confessional, a chandelier, a streetlamp, and so on--and she loved it. I was really excited about the idea of using black as a way to transition between the worlds, losing the context of what is exterior and what is interior.”
