Lorde is 'proud' of new single
Lorde is "really proud" of the lyrics she created for her new single 'Liability'.
The 20-year-old singer has just dropped her latest track on her adoring fans around the world and has admitted she's really impressed with the work she produced because the story she's telling through her music will resonate with every listener.
She explained: "I'm really proud of this bit of songwriting. I feel like I got somewhere they hadn't been before, which is always a nice feeling as a songwriter. It's interesting because I had this realisation that because of my lifestyle and what I do for work there's going to be a point with every single person around me where I'm gonna be attacks on them in some way. If it is having to give up a little portion of their privacy or their life becoming more difficult or whatever.
"It was just this moment of sadness and I remember it so vividly. I was in this cab alone listening to 'Higher' by Rihanna because 'ANTI' had just come out. And I had a little cry and I was just like 'it's always going to be this way, at some point with everyone it's going to be this way'.
"But the song kind of ended up turning into a bit of a protective talismans for me. I was like, you know what, I'm always gonna have myself so I have to really nurture this relationship and feel good about hanging out with myself and loving myself.
"And the tone of the melody, the way it kind of falls around, it's almost like it's kind of drunk or it sort of leans around, it's got this hip hop cadence to it."
The brunette beauty is set to release her new album 'Melodrama' in June and, although she's keeping the details under wraps for now, she's teased that the songs are "tight."
Speaking on Apple Beats 1 Radio, she told Zane Lowe: "The record is called 'Melodrama'. [On number of songs on the album] It's tight like my last one, I like to keep them small."
Lorde is also preparing for her upcoming performances and is certain they will be "sick."
She said: "It's gonna be a big one. It's gonna be so sick. We're working with the sickest people on the show and doing all these festivals and awesome bits of TV. And it's gonna be... oh my God I can't wait for you to see it. I'm so excited!"
