Listen to Lorde explain each song on Melodrama below.
"In this sort of post-Blonde landscape, we can all sort of do whatever we want in terms of instrumentation", the 20-year-old New Zealand native said. One of the songs curated with influence from Mr. Ocean is "The Louvre". "It's exciting. I can use guitars and I can get a big gnarly Flume beat and throw it under water". "But it won't mean as much to simplify the journey, or to force a big chorus". I just felt like I wanted it to feel like how that [new love] feels... the big, sun-soaked dumbness of falling in love. "It's just like this big dumb joy and it's intense-and I feel like the instrumentation in that song kind of helped it get there", Lorde adds. It's like your whole head is just glue. Having already played the likes of 'Green Light', 'Liability', 'Sober', 'Homemade Dynamite' and 'Perfect Places' on telly and at festival sets, three more cuts from the singer's second album were previewed.
"I think I know what the next record is going to sound like, but of course I have no idea". "It's gonna be really different to what I think it is right now".
