Just ahead of the June 16th release of her forthcoming sophomore album Melodrama, GRAMMY-winning artist Lorde adds new single “Perfect Places” to her already impressive roster. The euphoric track sets the stage for a lively and carefree summer with an anthem for those young at heart. “Perfect Places” is available now.
Lorde will headline marquee festivals across the globe this year including anticipated performances at Governors Ball, Bonnaroo, Glastonbury, Lollapalooza, Outside Lands, Life Is Beautiful, and more.
Pre-orders of Melodrama will include an instant download of “Liability,” produced by Lorde and Jack Antonoff, and the album’s lead single “Green Light,” produced by Lorde, Jack Antonoff, and Frank Dukes.
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, win two GRAMMY Awards, and spawn the seven-times platinum record-breaking international juggernaut single, “Royals,” and quadruple-platinum follow up “Team.” The former cemented Lorde as “the youngest solo artist and the only New Zealander to achieve #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 since 1987.” Time exalted her amongst the “Most Influential Teenagers in the World,” she landed on Forbes’s “30 Under 30” List, graced the cover of Rolling Stone and performed alongside Nirvana during the 2014 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony. She also curated the official soundtrack for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 and recorded “Yellow Flicker Beat” as the lead single.
