Lorde Shares Why Her Merchandise Prices Higher Than Usual, Details About New Album And Tour Dates Revealed
It has been another day for Lorde fans to celebrate as the singer releases a new line of merch and album, along with tour dates announced on Monday, June 21.
Days after "Royals" pop star dropped her sun-soaked summer anthem, HuffPost reported that she also mentioned the arrival of her third album of the same name, coming August 20.
According to Variety, the album will come out at retail in what the singer describes as eco-friendly, deluxe CD-style packaging, albeit with a download code and no CD within.
The announcement that came from Lorde says it is "to honor the natural world."
The album will release it in "a first-of-its kind, discless format. An eco-conscious Music Box will be available for purchase as an alternative to a CD" for retail.
The merch will also come with extra printed content and a high-quality download with exclusive two bonus tracks.
Other than the album, Lorde also further explained on her website that the prices for the garments available for pre-order are a little higher than usual.
And this is because of a partnership with Everybody.World. The site describes the supplier as "Ethically-Minded and Environmentally Responsible."
