Fresh off the release of her chart-topping masterpiece Melodrama, Lorde has shared with us the new music video for Perfect Places! Watch in awe as she takes what looks like one hell of a holiday, visiting the beach, the forest, a waterfall and a lush grassy field, all the while singing “What the f*** are perfect places anyway?”.
Perfect Places is a special one for Lorde, who made a Facebook post explaining it: ‘i was living in new york during summer last year, writing melodrama – i’d ride across the brooklyn bridge every day, or sit on the subway uptown in the heat, then go back home to new zealand winter for a week at a time to party with my friends. my life was like a weird little etch-a-sketch i kept scribbling on and resetting. and all last summer, i couldn’t shake the feeling that everyone i knew or saw was searching for something – trying to transcend the news and the screaming pavements, drinking that one drink hoping it’d get them someplace higher. this song comes from that endless cycle of evenings and the violent heat of the summer. it took us a very long time to get right, from an aching piano demo to where is it now. it’s close to my heart. i hope you like it.’
