Lorde has released a series of sumptuous videos, all filmed at the same session at Electric Lady Sound Studios in New York’s West Village, ahead of the MTV Video Music Awards this week (Sunday August 27).

The musician chose six tracks from her recently-released second album Melodrama to perform in the intimate candle-lit space, all of which received special stripped-back arrangements for the set. Producer and sometime co-writer Jack Antonoff steps in for Writer In The Dark, sitting alongside Lorde at the piano.

The tracks selected are Writer In The Dark, Homemade Dynamite, Supercut, Sober, The Louvre, and Hard Feelings/Loveless; watch Writer In The Dark below, and then see the rest of these stirring recordings here.

Melodrama is out now via Universal.
