Lorde has announced her first headline show after the debut of her upcoming new album and it's...well, it's in Australia, and there's still no word of her coming home.

Lorde will perform an intimate gig in Sydney showcasing music from her new album Melodrama in July.

It will be the first time the Kiwi singer has performed in Australia since 2014 and her first time playing music from her highly anticipated second album, due for release in June.


The first single from the album, Green Light, has already been streamed over 80 million times since its release last month.

The special gig is scheduled for July 6 but the exact location of the show is still to be announced, and tickets seem to only be available via local competitions rather than going on sale.

She hasn't announced any other shows for her upcoming visit to Australia, but her Aussie fans will be pleased after a lot of them were let down when rumours of the Kiwi star playing Splendour In The Grass turned out to be false.

And on the plus side for Kiwi fans, there's still a few months between now and July for her to announce her homecoming.
