Lorde returns with her sophomore album Melodrama right as festival season begins to heat up; she’ll be kicking off the festival circuit in April when she plays Coachella and the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival before taking the stage at Governors Ball on Randall’s Island and heading to the farm for Bonnaroo in June. Other than the album’s first two singles – “Green Light” and “Liability” – festival goers will likely be the first to hear any unreleased Melodrama tracks before the rest of us.
Those sweat-soaked concertgoers won’t be able to sing along, but they can expect the same emotion-filled songwriting always present in Lorde’s music.
“Part of the idea of Melodrama as an album is all of these crazy, kind of over the top, colorful feelings when you’re this age and your just like, ‘This is the worst thing in the world. Nothing could be worse than this.’ And then it’s gone the next day.” Lorde tells Shoboy and Nina of 92.3 AMP Radio. “I feel so connected to this record, which is a nice way to feel.”

Further delving into the source of her songwriting, Lorde explains, “It’s such a direct line to something I was feeling or to a really amazing memory… It’s going to be exciting to get it all out there.”
