How to wire ceiling lampholder

I'm replacing an existing ceiling lampholder with a new one that requires slightly different wiring setup. Please take a look at the pics. One pic shows the existing connections. The other pic shows the new lampholder. Can anyone please tell me the proper connections for the new lampholder? Many thanks in advance.

Welcome to the forums.

You can cut the wires off the old fixture right at the terminals and reuse them or remove them at the wirenuts. On the new fixture..... the gold screws are hot/black and the silver screws are neutral/white

(be sure there's no power before making any cuts or connections)
