Lorde has shared a new song, two weeks prior to the release of her anticipated sophomore album Melodrama.

Perfect Places, which comes as the closing track from the album, caps off what seems a raucous house party (apparently the ‘start-to-finish’ theme of Melodrama). Here Lorde questions whether ‘perfect places’ even exist anyway – from hooking up with a stranger, to throwing up after too much alcohol (a scenario which often seems pressured on youth) – Lorde has delivered something here which is not only stupendously catchy but also incredibly-clever in context too.

Listen below; Melodrama lands on 16th June.
