In an interview with New Zealand podcast The Spinoff, pop singer Lorde explained how the music on her latest album Melodrama was inspired by Frank Ocean's 2016 LP, Blonde.

She revealed that "Blonde" helped inspire the arrangement for "The Louvre". It's just about new love, and how complicated it can be, and how infuriating, and how flawless it is as well.

Describing how the track is about "new love", Lorde said: "It's just like this big dumb joy and it's intense - and I feel like the instrumentation in that song kind of helped it get there".

"In this sort of post-'Blonde' landscape, we can all sort of do whatever we want in terms of instrumentation", she added.

"Melodrama" is on course to debut at number one on several charts around the world. Her breakout song Royals from first album Pure Heroine topped the Billboard 100 for nine straight weeks in 2013, with the album reaching number 3 on the Billboard 200 list. Having already played the likes of 'Green Light', 'Liability', 'Sober', 'Homemade Dynamite' and 'Perfect Places' on telly and at festival sets, three more cuts from the singer's second album were previewed. "It's gonna be really different to what I think it is right now".
