Lorde - 2021 and NEW ALBUM

I have two daughters who find her inspiring so I can very much vouch for this

Yes this! Aoty. It is the album I’ve listened too the most . So many bangers. And the middle part of the album is a sonic joy.

FYI, I think it comes out on vinyl tomorrow.

Enjoying this more and more. Green Light and Perfect Places were the ones that struck me first, but the whole thing’s revealing itself really nicely. The Louvre is a big standout for me, the breathless verses and the vocal hook on “a ru-uu-uu-ush at the beginning” are wonderful. Also, Liability (Reprise) is just bloody lovely.

The production’s just as good as it was on the first album for me. Some really great little touches, like the weird creaking noises on Hard Feelings.

Have you heard her on Marc Maron’s podcast? Hard to believe she’s in her early 20’s.
I realise it’s co-written, but her lyrics are brilliant.

It’s a good job she takes ages between albums took me at least 2 years to properly love Melodrama.

The new track was up online for a bit, but now seems to have disappeared.

Phoebe Bridgers and Clairo are on backing vocals.

I heard it today. Is it just me or does it sound like Primal Scream? Dunno how I feel about it tbh.

Without hearing this, I’m assuming it doesn’t add anything. Dunno whether it was Beyoncé who kick started the pointless focus-grouped credibility cameos/credits trend on mainstream pop records but it’s a bit tiring now

They could just be mates?

Yep love team loads, I think that and green light are her best

That’s actually a really good description!

Hmm it’s nice but it’s no Green Light anyway

Came here to say exactly this. I spent the first two minutes of the song expecting it to build to something good but just got Loaded/Movin’-On-Up-lite. Can’t say I’m too impressed with this as the big return. A less than average pop song.
