Lorde green light

Lorde's new single sounds very familiar...

10 March 2017, 09:39 | Written by The Line of Best Fit

Lorde's swiftly dropped the follow up to the bombastic brilliance of "Green Light" - it's called "Liability" and it's a tearjerk ballad.

The pared-back, piano-led tune is built to hit hard - Lorde's vocal talents melt with sparse keys to brutal effect, providing a totally different preview of upcoming second LP Melodrama.

But a lot of ears can't help but notice it feels eerily familiar...

Regardless of what or who it sounds like, it's pretty bloody great.

Lorde's debut album Pure Heroine was released in 2013. Despite not releasing an album for a while, Lorde's certainly kept busy - she paid tribute to David Bowie at last year's BRIT Awards, has worked with Broods and Disclosure, and curated the soundtrack for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1.

Melodrama is out 16 June via Universal. Pre-order now.
