Auckland to hear new Lorde album early

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 12/06/2017

Kiwi pop sensation Lorde is treating Aucklanders to listen to her highly anticipated new album two days before it's due for release.

The 20-year-old announced on Facebook just before midday on Monday that she wants Auckland to be the first to hear Melodrama in its entirety.

"I've organised a super special listening party for you this Wednesday, June 14," she posted to her 6.64 million followers on Facebook.

Ella Yelich-O'Connor said she couldn't be there for it, but will be there in spirit.

"Can't wait for you to hear this thing [sic]."

She's giving away 50 double passes on her website to "the exclusive Melodrama album listening session", where hopefuls will have to write a paragraph on why they want to be there.
