Do Yourself A Favor & Listen To Lorde's Sophomore Album, Melodrama
'Green Light' means go. As I trust (and hope) you all do when listening to an album the first go-round, you start with track one and play it all the way through. Ideally with no distractions or stops, devoting your best attention and appreciation to the music; and that's precisely what we've done with Melodrama. From the California coast to the metropolis of New York, we've given Lorde's sophomore album a proper listen (as we're sure the rest of the global community has as well), and she's lit a digital firestorm. One could fathom the pressure a young woman - who's debut album, Pure Heroine, garnered such renown acclaim - has weighing on her to create a second album of equal or more triumphant quality. Well, ladies and gentlemen, Lorde has done it again!
"Broadcast the boom boom boom boom and make 'em all dance to it."
It's likely that if you have access to internet, you've already heard a few of the electric hits from the New Zealand artist's new release. Tracks such as "Liability," "Sober" and "Perfect Places" (to name just a few), were released over the past two-three months, in anticipation of the big day, i.e. TODAY! Lorde, who's given name is Ella Yelich-O'Connor, wrote and produced the album with the talents of her dear friend and Bleachers' lead, Jack Antonoff. The collaborative talents of Flume, Tove Lo, Frank Dukes, plus many more were also part of the magic! Now stop reading, and get to listening. Like we said, start at the beginning and work your way down... but we can't lie that after the first cycle, we may or may not be listening to "Homemade Dynamite" & "The Louvre" on repeat. Now, raise a glass for this talented Kiwi tonight, have a great Friday, and an even better weekend!
