Lorde says she’s committed to show us the new world!
Back in 2013, the music world instantly became enamored with the lyrical wit and craftsmanship of Lorde, a then 16-year old girl from New Zealand. Her massively successful and influential Pure Heroine became the anti-millennial anthem for a lot of teenagers who were sick of listening to bad party songs on the radio.
Pure Heroine explores classic teen-pop themes – social anxiety, romantic yearning, ennui, and booze-soaked ragers – “with an eerie, zoomed-out detachment;" and is "certainly underpinned by]" "an adolescent grievance and angst."
Lorde said that "Writing Pure Heroine was my way of enshrining our teenage glory, putting it up in lights forever so that part of me never dies.” She also said that her new album, titled Melodrama, to be released this June 16, is about what comes next. ...”The party is about to start. I am about to show you the new world”.
The album is about a "grapple with loneliness" in the aftermath of a break-up, according to the New York Times. In the article, Lorde mentions that "Melodrama wasn’t a 'breakup album" and stated that "it’s a record about being alone. The good parts and the bad parts, dealing with themes of heartbreak and solitude"
In another interview, she revealed the new album would be about “all the gross moments, all the great moments” of early adulthood. And we are all excited!
