amassing an incredible 2 billion impressions on Twitter alone within its first 24 hours. Rolling

Stone praised her return single as, “a reflection of her own emerging adulthood” and The

FADER declared the track, “a true pop anthem – made for both earbud strutting and the

club”. Pitchfork naming “Green Light” and “Perfect Places” best new tracks. Billboard praised

“Liability” as “an absolute jaw-dropper.” SPIN calling her latest release “Sober,” “the strangest,

coolest Melodrama song yet,” with Pitchfork declaring the track, “intoxicating.”

from Khalid – and in Australia and New Zealand, Lorde announces her 2018 North American

tour dates, with support to be announced. The singer’s North American dates are set for March
