NEW YORK, NY (June 9, 2017) – Following last week’s release of her new single “Perfect Places,” which Rolling Stone characterizes as an, “existential party anthem” that is both “defiant” and “stage-ready” and Pitchfork names their “Best New Track,” GRAMMY-winning artist LORDE gears up for the June 16th release of Melodrama with “Sober,” made available today on all digital service providers.  Continuing to build hype for the forthcoming album, “Sober” presents a serene yet expressive song in true Lorde style.  This new song will give fans a taste of what to expect and leads the way to Lorde’s upcoming tour across Europe – featuring support from Khalid – and in Australia and New Zealand, with support to be announced.

Lorde’s incredible performance at Governors Ball amassed massive fan and critical praise with UPROXX noting that “her voice was impeccable, and she brimmed with confidence as she strutted across the stage” and Billboard concluding that “Lorde can deliver…”  She continues to headline marquee festivals across the globe this year including anticipated performances at Bonnaroo, Glastonbury, Lollapalooza, Outside Lands, Life Is Beautiful, and more.

ABOUT LORDE: In 2013, a 16-year-old LORDE quietly, yet confidently asserted herself as the voice of a generation with her full-length debut, Pure Heroine. The album would go triple-platinum, win two GRAMMY® Awards, and spawn the seven-times platinum record-breaking international juggernaut single, “Royals,” and quadruple-platinum follow up “Team.” The former cemented LORDE as “the youngest solo artist and the only New Zealander to achieve #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 since 1987.” Time exalted her amongst the “Most Influential Teenagers in the World,” she landed on Forbes’s “30 Under 30” List, graced the cover of Rolling Stone and performed alongside Nirvana during the 2014 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony. She also curated the official soundtrack for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 and recorded “Yellow Flicker Beat” as the lead single. This year LORDE made her anxiously awaited return with the single “Green Light,” from her second full-length album due June 16.
