Lorde continues the rollout for her new album Melodrama with her second song release in as many weeks in "Liability." The record takes a different direction from "Green Light," which captured a more contemporary pop sound that should bode well for the Billboard charts. The ballad approach on "Liability" could equally turn into chart success, with Lorde pouring her heart out over a piano-laden backdrop.

i wanted you to have a new song from Melodrama, a new chapter of the story - this is Liability 🌌 https://t.co/YeJ1aeAefA
