With the long-awaited release of a new album – penned with long-time collaborator and producer Jack Antonoff – it is going to be a very big few years for Lorde. Her Australian tour announcement begins a global tour that will take her across Europe, the UK, and North America.

Lorde has been slinging pop gems our way for close to a decade now.

At just 16 years old, she released her debut album Pure Heroine, going on to win two Grammy Awards including the coveted Album of the Year. The album peaked at #1 in over 20 countries, and gave us much-loved tracks ‘Royals’, ‘Tennis Court’ and ‘Team’.

It’s follow up, 2017’s Melodrama, launched Lorde to superstar status – driven largely by the inescapable ‘Green Light’. The record garnered critical acclaim, earning a slew of award nominations, and multi-platinum status.

Her third album is sure to continue this momentum.

The album is a celebration of the natural world, an attempt at immortalising the deep, transcendent feelings I have when I’m outdoors. In times of heartache, grief, deep love or confusion, I look to the natural world for answers. I’ve learnt to breathe out, and tune in. This is what came through.
