Lorde's 'Melodrama' out 16 June; pre-order now; new track 'Liability' available instantly with pre-order
Following LORDE’s highly-anticipated return with new single "Green Light", the singer sets the release of her second full-length album Melodrama for 16 June via Universal Music Australia.
Melodrama is available for pre-order now. Each digital pre-order will include an instant download of brand new track “Liability”, produced by Lorde and Jack Antonoff, and current single "Green Light", produced by Lorde, Jack Antonoff, and Frank Dukes.
"Green Light" immediately launched the GRAMMY® Award-winning singer to the top worldwide trending topic on Facebook and Twitter, amassing an incredible 2 billion impressions on Twitter alone within its first 24 hours. Making its debut at No.1 on the Billboard and Twitter 140 chart, the track also clinched the top spot on Spotify’s Viral Songs charts globally. The music video for the track has had 18 million views in just one week.
Rolling Stone praised her return single as, “a reflection of her own emerging adulthood” and The FADER declaring the track, “a true pop anthem – made for both earbud strutting and the club”. Pitchfork named “Green Light” Best New Track, concluding, “the euphoria of ‘Green Light’ is a new look for this 20-year-old who first appeared as a shadowy teenaged mystic. She doles it out carefully, true to her inability to find closure. But when it hits, she’s radiant.”
