Breakout pop-star Lorde is bringing her live show to bigger stages next year with a month long headlining club tour. The trek kicks off on March 3rd in Austin, Texas and concludes on March 26th in Oakland, California.
It's been an incredible year all-around for the singer. Her debut album Pure Heroine peaked at Number Three on the Billboard 200 albums chart, while her ubiquitous lead single "Royals" dominated the Hot 100 singles chart. Meanwhile, she also managed to rack up four Grammy nominations: Pure Heroine is a contender for Best Pop Vocal Album, while "Royals" is nominated for Best Solo Pop Performance, Record of the Year and Song of the Year. Both album and song have also been included on a variety of year-end lists: The LP came in at Number Seven on Rolling Stone's 50 Best Albums of 2013, and topped the Best Debut Albums of 2013, while "Royals" was voted the second best song of the year.
But Lorde isn't resting on her laurels in the wake of that success. Just last week, she dropped a breezy new track called "No Better," and she's already working on her next album."I've been writing, but I haven't really had time to hit the studio as of yet," she recently told Billboard. "That'll be the end of this year, or next year."
