Lorde Hits a Red Light on New Piano Ballad, 'Liability'

Now we know why her album is called Melodrama.

Lorde surprised us today with something new: a stripped-down cover of My Chemical Romance's 2006 anthem, "The Black Parade." Well not really, but listen to the two back-to-back and tell us they're not the same song. Announced on Lorde's Twitter, the track's titled "Liability" and is so dramatic, you can understand why she named her sophomore album, Melodrama.

The "Green Light" singer/songwriter also makes lyrical reference to a female lover, though her interview with Pitchfork reveals the woman in discussion is in fact herself. "So I guess I'll go home into the arms of the girl that I love; the only love I haven't screwed up; she's so hard to please, but she's a forest fire," Lorde sings above a melancholic piano melody.

Listen to "Liability," below ahead of Lorde's SNL performance this weekend and Melodrama's release on June 16.
