Lorde is returning to the ARIA Awards.
The New Zealand singer-songwriter will cross the ditch to perform at the Australian recording industry’s flagship gala later this month, where she’s also shortlisted for best international artist.
Lorde, who performed at the 2013 ARIAs, will use her latest appearance to cap the Australasian leg of her Melodrama World Tour, which is currently winding its way through her homeland and wraps up Nov. 26 at Sidney Myer Music Bowl in Melbourne.
With her 2017 sophomore album Melodrama, the Kiwi star scored her first No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and her second leader on the ARIA Albums chart after Pure Heroine reached the summit in October 2013. Pure Heroine’s hit "Royals" launched Lorde into the international spotlight and into the leadership of the Billboard Hot 100 chart for nine weeks.
"Lorde is an amazingly talented artist and one of the biggest acts in the world right now," comments ARIA CEO Dan Rosen in a statement issued Monday (Nov. 13). "We are so excited to welcome her back to the ARIA stage in what is sure to be a magic moment from this incredible performer."
At the upcoming 31st edition of the ARIAs, Lorde joins a lineup of performers which includes alternative rock outfit Gang Of Youths, indigenous hip-hop duo A.B. Original and pop singer Jessica Mauboy, British singer Harry Styles, and electronic acts Peking Duk and Pnau.
With eight nominations, Gang Of Youths leads the pack for the 2017 ARIA Awards, which will be held Nov. 28 at the Star Event Centre in Sydney and will air live on the Nine Network.
