Lorde, our dream BFF through good times and bad, has been getting pretty mellow/emosh. Performing Paul Simon’s ‘Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard’ with Jack Antonoff, and powering through Martha Wainwright’s ‘Bloody Mother Fucking Asshole’, recently.
Now, during a trip to NYC, she’s stripped down her own Melodrama tracks for a series of beaut performance videos. She brings in a string section for ‘Writer in the Dark’, takes some backup singers to a rooftop for ‘Hard Feelings/Loveless’, and reworked ‘Homemade Dynamite’, ‘Supercut’, ‘Sober’ and ‘The Louvre’.
Surrounded by candles and dressed in a pretty white gown, Lorde must be an angel. Watch below:
