"She is intensely self-aware and, accordingly, is able to take all the inelegancies of youth — the stumbles out of nightclub doors, the clothes strewn across the bedroom floor, how apocalyptic that first heartbreak feels — and turn them into something exquisite." — Drowned In Sound, June 2017
In 2013, a 16-year-old New Zealander, Ella Yelich-O'Connor — a.k.a. Lorde — asserted herself as the voice of a generation with her debut album, Pure Heroine, and its smash single "Royals." The album would go triple-platinum, win two Grammy Awards and spawn another record-breaking single, "Team."
Now the 20-year-old Lorde has returned with Melodrama, which has been nominated for Album of the Year at the 2018 Grammy Awards. Melodrama includes the track "Liability," produced by Lorde and Jack Antonoff, and the single "Green Light," produced by Lorde, Jack Antonoff, and Frank Dukes.
"Green Light" immediately launched the Grammy Award-winning singer to the top worldwide trending topic on Facebook and Twitter, amassing an incredible 2 billion impressions on Twitter alone within its first 24 hours.
Rolling Stone praised her return single as a reflection of her own emerging adulthood and The Fader declared the track as a true pop anthem made for both earbud strutting and the club. Pitchfork named "Green Light" best new track, concluding the euphoria of "Green Light" "is a new look for this 20-year-old who first appeared as a shadowy teenaged mystic. She doles it out carefully, true to her inability to find closure. But when it hits, she is radiant."
The Deluxe Edition of the album is a limited run pressed on 180-gram translucent blue vinyl housed in a double gatefold jacket with a bi-fold lyric booklet and six double-sided photo inserts.
