Coachella just wrapped up its first weekend of performances, and one of the biggest acts that emerged was a set from Lorde. The singer unveiled a host of new songs from her highly-anticipated album Melodrama, many of which made their live debut. Check out the premiere of tracks called “Homemade Dynamite,” “Sober,” and the album’s title track in the videos below.
Lorde’s previously released Melodrama singles, “Green Light” and “Liability,” are far more ballad-like than the booming pop-swagger of these new offerings; “Homemade Dynamite” in particular is a tour de force. But they weren’t the only surprises of her Coachella set, she also gave a rendition of “Liability” that incorporated elements of Kanye West. Watch that below.
Lorde’s Melodrama is out June 16 via Virgin Records.
