Avatar dropped their new album the other day, "Avatar Country" and it's so bloody good! Favourite songs off it are "Legend of the King" and "King After King", but I really like the music video to "A Statue of the King"
... Yeah, every track has the word "king" in it, it's a concept album, lol :P
Two songs that I'm in love with right now. Two of my current favourite albums of the year.
EDEN - Take Care
"And if I could forget you, you know I would leave I can't help myself from feeling all this is wasted on me And I love the rain (love!), but I can't live in a storm I got more to go Still learning to grow"
Speak Low If You Speak Love - Contrasting Colours
"Fall into place like contrasting colors You were gold, I was green to discover Swirling like oceans apart from each other You and I may never be lovers"
I've been listening to some great 2017 albums these days, and I found out some albums I've never heard of which were pretty great! I'd recommend to listen to some of them. Some songs to know about these albums:
Oh, and, yeah, Lorde's album is also fantastic, but you already talked about it xD. I think we could already tell since Pure Heroine was released that Lorde was going to be a phenomenal songwriter. I'm happy that she's doing fine. When I think about more "pop" music, she, Grimes and Beyoncé always pop out in my mind when I think about it. I'd say that Lorde was a big influence in introducing a more minimalistic approach to pop music, which I enjoy. The first time I heard "Royals" I thought that was something special.
