UPDATE: Lorde has now released her new single ‘Perfect Places’.
ORIGINAL STORY: Brace yourselves, mere mortals, because it looks a whooooooole lot like her Lordeship will be gracing us with yet another tune from her forthcoming Melodrama album this Friday and it just-so-happens to be HER FAVOURITE THING SHE’S EVER FKN DONE.
The Kiwi pop phenom (who’s coming to Australia for a one-off show in July) told us so in a tweet back in March, adding that her next single “truly sounds like nothing i’ve heard in the best way”.
and the music… this next song is like my favourite thing i've ever done it truly sounds like nothing i've heard in the best way

Yep. And now, she’s about to deliver it straight to our eardrums, teasing some fresh song lyrics and a release date of this Friday, 2nd June 6am New Zealand time (that’s 4am AEST for those playing at home).

The lyrics read: “Every night I live and die – feel the party in my bones”, which has dancefloor anthem written all over it IMHO.
It will represent our third taste of Melodrama, following ‘Liability’ and ‘Greenlight’.
We’re waiting for it…
