Lorde has addressed a viral video of her telling an audience to be quiet during a concert performance of one of her songs.
Although it's been a few years since the 25-year-old wrapped up her Melodrama tour, a few videos of the New Zealand native quieting down concert-goers have recently gone viral. Over the weekend, Lorde addressed the onstage moments, which took place during her renditions of "Writer in the Dark."
"That was something that I did on that one song a couple of times when I wanted to sing it a cappella and off the microphone so people could hear me and because I wanted to try something different," she said in a video re-posted by a fan account on April 24.
"If you come to my shows, you know it's an hour-and-a-half of all of us singing and screaming together. Also, that dramatic-a** move was literally for an album called Melodrama, so don't stress too hard."
Lorde is currently on tour in support of her 2021 album Solar Power, where she's been performing fan favorites like "Mood Ring," "Stoned at the Nail Salon," and "Leader of a New Regime."
She also addressed the shushing moments during a concert in Chicago on April 22. Right before launching into "Writer in the Dark," the singer sat down onstage and reminisced about how she felt during that moment in time almost five years ago.
In the coming months, she's also set to play Primavera Sound LA, Glastonbury, Life is Beautiful, and All Things Go 2022.
