Single Review: Lorde – Liability


Lorde premieres another new track from upcoming second album
The word is finally out! Lorde will release her sophomore album Melodrama on the 16th of June. This weekend she will perform at SNL in the states and the tradition is that artists play two songs there. The New Zealand pop star who launched her big comeback track ‘Green Light’ last week, receiving some rave reviews, dropped another new song, ‘Liability’, as a pre-order single on iTunes. While ‘Green Light’ showed off her ability to go full on uptempo pop, ‘Liability’ is on the complete other end of the spectrum.

‘Liability’ is a slow piano ballad in which Lorde lays her soul bare. opening up about people turning away from her because of her lifestyle. “Baby really hurt me, crying in the taxi, He don’t wanna know me,says he made the big mistake of dancing in my storm, says it was poison, so I guess I’ll go home.” To Beats 1 Radio she explained how the song ultimately deals with her strengthening her relationship with herself. ” I was like, you know what, I’m always gonna have myself so I have to really nurture this relationship and feel good about hanging out with myself and loving myself.”

An honest and moving track that shows off Lorde’s more mature song writing!
