Lorde has found releasing her new songs to be an emotional and "intense" experience.

The Kiwi singer rose to worldwide fame with her 2013 debut studio album Pure Heroine, which featured popular singles such as "Royals", "Tennis Court" and "Team". 

Earlier this month, Lorde dropped the first single, "Green Light", from her sophomore album, Melodrama, and on Friday released another song called "Liability".

After an extended period out of the spotlight, the 20-year-old revealed that it felt odd to finally unveil new tracks.

It felt "big and intense having Liability out in the world", she wrote on her Twitter page on Friday. 

The singer, real name Ella Yelich-O'Connor, made her first album with producer Joel Little. But for the follow-up, she worked alongside Jack Antonoff, the musician boyfriend of Girls star Lena Dunham, whom she credits with pushing her in a new creative direction. 

"Jack truly pushed me to a place i'd never been with this album i couldn't love him more for it this song freaked & grossed me out at first," she wrote on the microblogging website, on which she boasts over 4.5 million followers. "Remember being in a big beautiful verdant studio in la (Los Angeles) with jack and those falling chords sounding like the music i grew up on."
