Lorde has made her return to music after three years of nothing and she is trying to come back with a bang. Just a week after releasing her first song since 2014, the singer has released another track from her album “Melodrama” called “Liability.”
Backed by nothing but a piano, Lorde gets emotional on the promotional single inspired by Rihanna. According to Lorde, the song is about pushing the boundaries of a relationship. “I was in this cab alone listening to ‘Higher’ by Rihanna because Anti had just come out,” she told Zane Lowe during a Beats 1 interview.
“And I had a little cry and I was just like, ‘It’s always going to be this way, at some point with everyone it’s going to be this way,” she said. “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.”
