“A lot of musicians think they can do pop," said Lorde, the musician who released “Pure Heroine” in 2013, which made her the first female artist with a million-selling debut album since Adele and established her as a wunderkind pop auteur. "And the ones who don’t succeed are the ones who don’t have the reverence, who think it’s just a dumb version of other music. You need to be awe-struck.” In this week’s cover story, Jonah Weiner writes about Lorde’s mysterious processes — her synesthesia, her listening in on conversations in New York diners, her odd maturity — employed on her highly anticipated new album, “Melodrama.” It was inspired by a breakup, but she insists it's not a breakup album. "It's a record about being alone. The good parts and the bad parts.”
Elsewhere in the magazine, Willy Staley profiles the writer and director Mike Judge, who has established himself as America’s foremost chronicler of its self-destructive tendencies, most recently with “Silicon Valley.” Suzy Hansen writes about life in Turkey’s fragile democracy. Rick Perlstein, a historian of conservatism, looks back on how he and his peers failed to anticipate the rise of Trump. And be sure to read C.J. Chivers's investigation into one veteran’s incarceration, a story that led to his release, which won a Pulitzer Prize this week.
Happy reading,
