Hot on the heels of "Green Light," Lorde has decided to bless the world with yet another new song - and it's about to wreck your heart.
Titled "Liability," the dreamy, heartbreaking ballad is a relatable tune for anyone whose ever been told they're "a little much" by someone they love, whether romantically or otherwise. In an interview with Zane Lowe on Beats 1 Radio, the singer explained, "It’s interesting because I had this realization that because of my lifestyle and what I do for work there’s going to be a point with every single person around me where I’m gonna be a tax on them in some way. If it is having to give up a little portion of their privacy or their life becoming more difficult or whatever. It was just this moment of sadness and I remember it so vividly."
She also went on to state that her inspiration for the song came when she was in a cab alone listening to "Higher" by Rihanna after ANTI had just come out.
"I had a little cry and I was just like, 'It’s always going to be this way, at some point with everyone it’s going to be this way,'" she said. "But the song kind of ended up turning into a bit of a protective talismans for me. I was like, you know what, I’m always gonna have myself so I have to really nurture this relationship and feel good about hanging out with myself and loving myself."
