Lorde performs onstage during Fuji Rock Festival 2017 on July 30, 2017 in Yuzawa, Japan.  

In a collaboration with Vevo, Lorde recently performed at Electric Lady Studios, where she recorded her acclaimed album Melodrama, to reimagine and record six songs from the record. Those alternate versions — of “Homemade Dynamite,” “Hard Feelings/Loveless,” “Supercut,” “Sober,” “The Louvre” and “Writer in the Dark” — were released Wednesday (Aug. 16). 

Lorde is a vision in a white, pajama-like dress in the footage from inside the studio, and dances on a rooftop with her backing singers during “Hard Feelings.”

In a behind-the-scenes video, Lorde said, “I don’t really do, like, acoustic sessions or anything, but with this record, it had roots in acoustic instruments and live musicianship.” Watch (and weep) below.
