Before we start, I would like to personally welcome you to the first published post on the official Playlists of the Year blog! Now that the highly anticipated album by Lorde is out, the real question is: What's Next. After listening to the album non stop over the past 12 hours I can honestly say this music is for dreamers. The album is heartbreaking while also being optimistic and inspiring. She tells the story of the teenager/young adult living their stereotypical movie life. Mistakes are made but solutions are nearby.
Update: Shortly after releasing Melodrama, Lorde has announced the North American leg of her "Melodrama World Tour."
