OH LORDE, THE MELODRAMA

Lava/Republic's Lorde has finally released her long-awaited second studio album Melodrama, which shot straight to #1 on iTunes.  

It's been nearly four years since the breakout star first hit with her quirky anthem "Royals," but for this new record she's teamed with producer/co-writer Jack Antonoff to help craft her sound. 

Discussing her approach to writing music, Lorde recently told the NY Times, “A lot of musicians think they can do pop, and the ones who don’t succeed are the ones who don’t have the reverence — who think it’s just a dumb version of other music. You need to be awe-struck.”

Current single "Perfect Places" follows previous offerings "Green Light," "Sober" and "Liability."
