Lorde just dropped her new album, and it’s about time. It’s her first release since Pure Heroine in 2013, and it’s been a long four years without listening to her raspy tone. The New Zealander has matured tremendously since her first album, which she recorded as a teen, and after having gone through a breakup, no doubt has a lot of material to talk about in her second album, Melodrama.
The album had been in the works since 2013 and Lorde has stated that it’s about looking forward to what’s to come and coming into one’s own after the negative and positive effects of a breakup. The album’s vibe is completely different from her first album as it has more of a mainstream, pop feel, but still Lorde, nonetheless. Check out the gallery for eight times her lyrics have been spot-on about our own lives.
