Lorde Dishes On New Song 'Writer In The Dark': 'This Was The Last Song To Make It on The Album'

Lorde Dishes On New Song 'Writer In The Dark': 'This Was The Last Song To Make It on The Album'

JJJ is pretty much obsessed with Lorde‘s brand new album, Melodrama, but we’re really obsessed with one song in particular — “Writer in the Dark”.

During her performance and interview with Beats 1, the singer/songwriter opened up about writing this song and the story behind it.

“This was the last song to make it on the record,” she revealed. “[It's] Another one where I felt I was speaking to someone or closing a door.”

“It’s interesting when you’re female and you write this confessional, painfully honest music about your life. There’s a lot of guilt associated with that. Am I a terrible person for harvesting my personal life for this? This song was my way of going actually ‘no it’s not my fault. This is what happens when you kiss a writer in the dark. They’re gonna write songs about you.’ This was my way of saying ‘I love you but I love this more.’”

Lorde adds about the production side, “This song came together so quickly I was sitting at the piano by myself at Electric Lady. Shout out to Lee, Tom Elmhurst, Barry our engineer, such a great place…I feel so musical in the best way.”

“Some studios I feel like is this just a conference room with a mic in it. I came up with this piano part by myself and the song grew. Jack [Antonoff] came in and moved a few parts around, told me to repeat a part, and it was done. This is basically the demo.”

Lorde is Sorry For Mentioning Autoimmune Diseases in Reference to Taylor Swift Friendship

Lorde is Sorry For Mentioning Autoimmune Diseases in Reference to Taylor Swift Friendship

Lorde is owning up to her mistakes.

The 20-year-old “Melodrama” singer took to social media to apologize for some comments she made about her friendship with Taylor Swift.

In case you missed it, Lorde used a rather strange analogy in a recent interview, saying it’s “like having a friend with an autoimmune disease.”

She received some backlash for being insensitive to people who do actually suffer from autoimmune diseases.

One fan on Twitter wrote, “I wonder how @selenagomez feels about this. What an incredibly ignorant analogy to make @lorde.”

(Selena suffers from Lupus.)

Lorde wrote back with an apology, “didn’t mention taylor, but regardless, i f-cked up & that was really insensitive. i’m sorry.”

Lorde made a very interesting analogy when asked about maintaining friendships with her highly famous friends like Taylor Swift.

The 20-year-old entertainer was speaking with The Guardian about being friends with Taylor, 27.

“It’s like having a friend with very specific allergies,” Lorde said. “There are certain places you can’t go together. Certain things you can’t do. There are these different sets of considerations within the friendship. It’s like having a friend with an autoimmune disease.”

Taylor has been keeping a super low profile lately, and was last photographed with her new beau Joe Alwyn earlier this month.

Lorde Reveals Secrets to Best Onion Rings - Watch Now!

Lorde Reveals Secrets to Best Onion Rings - Watch Now!

Lorde has confirmed that she indeed started a secret Instagram account dedicated to onion rings!

The 20-year-old singer opened up about her love for the fried food during her appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Thursday (June 15) in New York City.

Lorde was on the show to promote her new album Melodrama, out now, and she performed her song “Perfect Places.”

Lorde opened up about the secret to creating the best onion ring. “From my sort of semi-professional adventures, I think that a batter works better than a crumb. It’s a bit lighter. The other thing you can do to make an onion ring magical is lightly pickle the onion before you batter it up. It takes on this acidity and it’s incredible,” she said.

Melodrama features 11 tracks, four of which have already been released as singles – “Green Light,” “Liability,” “Perfect Places,” and “Sober.” She has also performed “Homemade Dynamite” live (at Coachella).
