Lorde has finally announced that her sophomore album Melodrama is coming to vinyl.
The follow-up to Lorde’s enigmatic debut Pure Heroine was always likely to be a difficult venture. But with Melodrama the young artist proved that her debut was no fluke.
The album centres around a change of circumstance for Lorde as she deals with the loss of her long-term partner as well as the new world filled with partying and press events that’s now unavoidable for her. Maintaining a tightrope walk between art and pop the enigmatic artists does so with aplomb. Worth the hype, as Far Out’s top 50 albums of 2017 would suggest.
You can pre-order both the standard and deluxe editions, which are pressed on blue vinyl with a hand drawn sleeve and bonus art prints, right here.
