Warming up for her Melodrama World Tour by hitting festivals across the world, Lorde celebrates the success of her latest No. 1 album with a new visual for “Perfect Places.” The stunning music video, directed by Grant Singer, features striking imagery and fashion-forward attire as Lorde showcases a plethora of “Perfect Places.”
“Perfect Places” is the newest single from her hugely-successful sophomore album Melodrama, which continues to break records across all platforms, spending seven consecutive days at #1 on the worldwide iTunes album chart and reaching #1 in 45 markets.
The Melodrama World Tour kicks off on September 26th in Manchester, UK. Various markets from the international leg of the tour are sold out including 02 Apollo Manchester, 02 Academy Birmingham, Fabrique Milan, and both nights at the Sydney Opera house.
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.
