Follow Lorde’s Escapism Fantasies in ‘Perfect Places’ Video

Kiwi hit-maker Lorde continues to dominate the scene after the release of her sophomore album Melodrama. Dropping the brand new video for the album’s last track ‘Perfect Places’, we’re transported to spots that only weekends could dream of.

Lorde has been teasing snippets on her Instagram this week, and on Tuesday shared the caption “when you have said goodbye to grace, then you are in the perfect place.”

Directed by Grant Singer, ‘Perfect Places’ is perhaps her most aesthetically pleasing video yet, full of exotic locations, lavish outfits, dancing, and other hedonistic pursuits.

Although one of the album’s most danceable tracks, ‘Perfect Places’ was inspired by a raucous New Zealand house party she attended last year – a commentary on how we’re all trying to escape ourselves and find perfect places that just don’t exist. That, as well the painful heat of New York Summer.
