Lorde is Out on Tour
Lorde burst onto the scene a few years ago with the hit song “Royals,” and she’s been one of the most popular musicians in the world ever since then. The New Zealand based singer is just starting her career in the grand scheme of things, and her popularity is likely to keep growing, especially as she refines and improves herself as a musician. Tickets to Lorde concerts almost always sell out, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t get a few for you and your friends. Keep reading; we’ll tell you more about how to get those hard to find tickets, and all that you need to know to enjoy a Lorde show.
“Royals” was released in 2013, and quickly become one of the most popular songs of the decade. It was her first big single, and it made her the youngest solo artist to have a number one Billboard hit since the mid 1980s. That song earned her two Grammy Awards, and her debut album, Pure Heroine, was nominated for Best Pop Vocal Album that year, although it ended up losing to Bruno Mars’ Unorthodox Jukebox.
She has released two full length studio albums since starting her career, and has even taken a three year long break in between. Her second album, Melodrama, came out in early 2017. Although it hasn’t quite had the same commercial success that her first album had, it has still been very popular. It received a nomination for Album of the Year at the Grammys that year, but ended up losing to Bruno Mars again with his 24K Magic album.
Besides “Royals,” Lorde has released a number of hugely popular songs. “Liability,” “Perfect Places,” “Yellow Flicker Beat,” and “Tennis Court” are some of her most well known songs. She is currently out on tour and there’s no word on more albums, but she’s young and talented enough that there’s a strong chance that a third album is on the way soon.
Lorde is the stage name of Ela Marija Lani Yelich-O’Connor. Her musical style is distinctly pop, although it has many experimental and blues elements to it, which helps her to stand out from most other pop artists. She has cited Fleetwood Mac and their singer Stevie Nicks as being one of her biggest influences. Lorde’s music is also highly reminiscent of Radiohead, Lady Gaga, and Prince. She writes all of her own lyrics, but none of the instrumental parts. She has commented in interviews that she doesn’t play an instrument, and she intends to keep it that way so that she can focus more fully on her voice.
That makes sense. Lorde is a very lyrical writer, and has said that poets like T. S. Eliot and Walt Whitman have been big parts of her life and how she writes her songs. The poetic influence is obvious to those that listen to her lyrics. Each song is like a short story, heavy with imagery and emotion. In addition to this, her bluesy style is unique in a genre that is none for being more heavily influenced by rock and rap, which is probably another reason why her popularity keeps growing. In a world where many pop singers sound alike, Lorde has a very distinctive—and very talented—voice behind her. Many legends of music, like Britney Spears, have spoken very highly of Lorde and her sound. She’s even performed on stage with the surviving members of the legendary 90s band, Nirvana.
