Lorde has shared another song from her upcoming album, Melodrama. Listen to “Perfect Places” above, courtesy of her YouTube. The track sets a smokey vibe with strong pop sensibility in the dance-friendly grooves and uplifting choruses.
Lorde shared some insight about the track on her Facebook page:
today, PERFECT PLACES is out in the world. this is a special one. i was living in new york during summer last year, writing melodrama – i’d ride across the brooklyn bridge every day, or sit on the subway uptown in the heat, then go back home to new zealand winter for a week at a time to party with my friends. my life was like a weird little etch-a-sketch i kept scribbling on and resetting. and all last summer, i couldn’t shake the feeling that everyone i knew or saw was searching for something – trying to transcend the news and the screaming pavements, drinking that one drink hoping it’d get them someplace higher. this song comes from that endless cycle of evenings and the violent heat of the summer. it took us a very long time to get right, from an aching piano demo to where is it now. it’s close to my heart. i hope you like it.
Melodrama is scheduled to be released on June 16, 2017. Pick it up on Amazon.
