In her early teens, she signed with Universal Music Group and was later paired with songwriter and record producer Joel Little.At the age of sixteen, she released her first extended play, The Love Club EP (2012), reaching number two on the national record charts in both New Zealand and Australia.The following year, Lorde curated the soundtrack for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 (2014) and provided its lead single, "Yellow Flicker Beat", for which she was nominated for the Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song.Lorde released her second studio album Melodrama (2017) after a three-year hiatus, launched with "Green Light" as its lead single.In November 2013, Lorde signed a publishing deal with Songs Music Publishing, worth a reported US.5 million, after a bidding war between various companies, including Sony Music Entertainment and her label UMG.The agreement gives the publisher the right to license Lorde's music for films and advertising.For me personally I just don't think it really would complement my music in any way or help me tell a story any better.
Lorde's debut studio album Pure Heroine (2013) garnered positive reviews for her depiction of suburban adolescence; yielding the additional top-ten single "Team", it topped the national charts in New Zealand and Australia and reached number three on the US Billboard 200.Lorde details that her songs are shaped by her lyrics, which she felt as a "more cohesive way of working." She said, "I tend to start with lyrics – sometimes the seed of a song will just be a word that I thought was rad, one that summed up a particular idea I'd been trying to pin down." Lindsay Zoladz from Pitchfork noted that Lorde expressed her indifference towards modern-day's culture, further explaining that "Lorde has introduced herself to the world as someone who gives very few fucks." Jim Pickney from the New Zealand Listener writes that Lorde's lyrics are structured in a short story manner and praised that her songwriting ability "combines unmistakably teenage confusion, curiosity and confidence with word skills beyond her years." In a November 2013 interview with Q, Lorde expressed frustration about "certain things about music": "There are a lot of shock tactics these days.People trying to outdo each other, which will probably culminate in two people fucking on stage at the Grammys."People like to paint me in a certain way, but I'm a hugely sex-positive person and I have nothing against anyone getting naked.The record deals with themes of heartbreak and solitude.Lorde's music consists of subgenres such as dream pop and indietronica.
