Lorde è tornata per sconvolgere il mondo del pop col suo ultimo progetto “Melodrama” che è in uscita il 16 giugno:
Lorde è riuscita a farsi conoscere da tutto il mondo col suo singolo “Royals“, raggiungendo la prima posizione specialmente negli Stati Uniti. Il suo album di debutto “Pure Heroine” ha venduto 3 milioni di copie mondialmente, 1 milione solamente negli USA raggiungendo la certificazione platino. Il secondo singolo “Team” ha riscosso un ottimo successo in quasi tutti i mercati e ha confermato la presenza di Lorde nel mondo della musica.Se Lorde si era fatta strada nel panorama musicale col genere alternativo, dopo 4 anni ha stravolto i suoi schemi pubblicando un album più pop, riuscendo ad unire la sua voce e il genere alternativo col sound dance/pop degli ultimi tempi. Il risultato? Un capolavoro. L’era “Melodrama” è iniziata con “Green Light” che poteva fare di meglio, successivamente ha pubblicato i singoli promozionali “Liability“, “Perfect Places” e “Sober“.Il disco è formato da 11 tracce e viene aperto da “Green Light“, il lead single che ci ha fatto conoscere in anteprima il sound e il concept del nuovo progetto musicale.
1)Green Light: “But I hear sounds in my mind, brand new sounds in my mind. But honey I’ll be seein’ you wherever I go. But honey I’ll be seein’ you down every road. I’m waiting for it, that green light, I want it, I’m waiting for it, that green light, I want it.”
2)Sober: “We’re King and Queen of the Weekend, ain’t a pill that could touch our rush (But what will we do when we’re sober?). When you dream with a fever, bet you wish you could touch our rush (But what will we do when we’re sober?)“.
3)Homemade Dynamite: “So let’s let things come out of the woodwork. I’ll give you my best side, tell you all my best lies. Seeing me rolling, showing someone else love. Hands under your t-shirt, know I think you’re awesome, right? Our rules, our dreams, we’re blind. Blowing shit up with homemade d-d-d-dynamite.” Per ascoltare la canzone CLICCA QUI.
4)The Louvre: “Our thing progresses, I call and you come through. Blow all my friendships, to sit in hell with you. But we’re the greatest, they’ll hang us in the Louvre. Down the back, but who cares—still the Louvre. Okay i know that you are not my type (still i fall). I’m just the sucker who let you fill her mind (but what about love?). Nothing wrong with it. Supernatural. Just move in close to me, closer, you’ll feel it coasting“. Per ascoltare la canzone CLICCA QUI.
5)Liabilty. “They say, “You’re a little much for me, you’re a liability, you’re a little much for me”. So they pull back, make other plans, I understand, I’m a liability. Get you wild, make you leave. I’m a little much for e-a-na-na-na, everyone.”
6)Hard Feelings/Loveless: “I light all the candles, cut flowers for all my rooms. I care for myself the way, I used to care about you. These days, we kiss and we keep busy. The waves come after midnight, I call from underwater. Why even try to get right? When you’ve outgrown a lover, the whole world knows but youIt’s time to let go of this endless summer afternoon.” Per ascoltare la canzone CLICCA QUI.
7)Sober II (Melodrama): “You asked if I was feeling it, I’m psycho high. Know you won’t remember in the morning when I speak my mind. Lights are on and they’ve gone home, but who am I? Oh, how fast the evening passes, cleaning up, the champagne glasses. We told you this was melodrama (Oh, how fast the evening passes cleaning up the champagne glasses)“.

8)Writer In The Dark: “Bet you rue the day you kissed a writer in the dark. Bet you rue the day you kissed a writer in the dark. Now she’s gonna play and sing and lock you in her heart. Bet you rue the day you kissed a writer in the dark. I am my mother’s child, I’ll love you ‘til my breathing stops. I’ll love you ‘til you call the cops on me, but in our darkest hours, I stumbled on a secret powerI’ll find a way to be without you, babe.” Per ascoltare la canzone CLICCA QUI.
9)Supercut: “In your car, the radio up, in your car, the radio up. We keep trying to talk about us. I’m someone you maybe might love, I’ll be your quiet afternoon crush. Be your violent overnight rush. Make you crazy over my touch. But it’s just a supercut of us, so I fall into continents and cars. All the stages and the stars I turn all of it. To just a supercut.” Per ascoltare la canzone CLICCA QUI.
10)Liability (Reprise): “I’m a liability, I’m a liability, Much for me. You’re a little much for me, no no no no…Whatcha gonna do? All of the dreams that get harder. All of the things that I offer you and all of the shit that we harbour. Make all of the kids in the choirs sing woo-hoo, maybe all this is the party, maybe the tears and the highs we breathe, maybe all this is the party, maybe we just do it violently, But you’re not what you thought you were.” Questo è il testo completo del brano e puoi sentirlo completo CLICCANDO QUI.
11)Perfect Places: “All the nights spent off our faces, trying to find these perfect places. What the fuck are perfect places anyway? All the nights spent off our faces, trying to find these perfect places. What the fuck are perfect places anyway? All the nights spent off our faces, trying to find these perfect places. What the fuck are perfect places anyway?”
