Lorde is the New Zealand singer who debuted in 2013 with her first albumPre Heroine. After four years, the young singer has given us the great news that her second album Melodrama is going to be out this summer.
Just a few days apart from the release of her first single, Green Light, Lorde has released a new song to streaming services entitled “Liability.” The slower, appropriately dramatic track appears to show a more confessional side of the singer-songwriter.
Liability shows Lorde’s new face.
In the song, Lorde is founded grappling with fame and how it can change friendships and relationships. The musician delivered a dextrous vocal performance over a soft piano melody and claimed that she “love the song so much and it feels so starkly truthful” to her, adding that she “thinks everyone knows what that’s like, to just feel like a liability.”
The singer explained in a new interview with Zane Lowe that she was in a cab listening to “Higher” by Rihanna and that made her think that “it’s always going to be this way, at some point with everyone it’s going to be this way,” which inspired her to create Liability.
The first single “Green Light.”
The video of “Green Light” was recently released. Lorde co-wrote the song with Jack Antonoff and Joel Little and she co-produced the track with Antonoff and Frank Dukes.
“The song is really about those moments kind of immediately after your life changes and about all the silly little things that you gravitate towards,” the singer expressed.
i am so proud of this song. it's very different, and kinda unexpected. it's complex and funny and sad and joyous and it'll make you DANCE

Latest Lorde’s Album Melodrama.
Lorde explained how adulthood has influenced her new album. The star talked about the feeling that everyone gets on the first proper year of adulthood. After moving out of her home she passed through the phase where she asked herself who she was when she was alone and when she was doing things just for herself.
The singer had a revelation and thought that was what that was. She decided to base her album on the truth that she had to tell so starkly herself and her friends. The album collects what she described as “all the gross moments and all great moments.”
