Following LORDE’s triumphant return with new single “Green Light,” the singer sets the release of her second full-length album Melodrama for June 16 via Universal Music.
Melodrama is available for pre-order now with release of new track “Liability” (produced by Lorde and Jack Antonoff) available instantly with digital pre-order of album, alongside current single “Green Light” produced by Lorde, Jack Antonoff and Frank Dukes.
“Green Light,” immediately launched Lorde to the top worldwide trending topic on Facebook and Twitter, amassing an incredible 2 billion impressions on Twitter alone within its first 24 hours. The track was the most added at Top 40 radio in the US upon impacting and was added straight onto the A-List at BBC Radio 1 in the UK. In just one week, the track has clocked up a staggering 12m streams and the video now has over 19 Million views on YouTube. The second coming of Lorde got the whole world talking; everyone from Diplo, Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, Halsey, Charlie XCX and even Aaron Paul from Breaking Bad took to their socials to praise the new track and video. Her debut performance of Green Light can be seen on Saturday Night Live in the US on March 11th.
In 2013, a 16-year-old LORDE quietly, yet confidently asserted herself as the voice of a generation with her full-length debut, Pure Heroine. The album would go triple-platinum, selling over 4 Million worldwide, win two GRAMMY® Awards, a BRIT and spawned the seven-times platinum record-breaking international juggernaut single, “Royals,” and quadruple-platinum follow up “Team.”
She also curated the official soundtrack for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 and recorded “Yellow Flicker Beat” as the lead single. Her last trip to Europe was when she was personally asked by David Bowie’s family to perform her spellbinding tribute to the late artist at 2016 BRIT AWARDS. Having once been described by David Bowie himself as “the future of music”; Lorde is proving to be that and much more.
