[AUGUST 18, 2021] GRAMMY(R) Award-winning artist Lorde will have a week-long residency on THE LATE LATE SHOW with JAMES CORDEN during the show's first week back with original episodes after a summer hiatus, Monday, Aug. 23 - Thursday, Aug. 26 (12:37-1:37 AM, ET/PT), on the CBS Television Network and available to stream live and on demand on the CBS app and Paramount+.
During her residency, Lorde will perform music off her new album, Solar Power, which will be released August 20. Also, she will appear in-studio for a sit-down chat and in comedy segments on the show throughout the week.
In 2013, a 16-year-old LORDE quietly, yet confidently asserted herself as the voice of a generation with her full-length debut, Pure Heroine. The album would go triple-platinum, win two GRAMMY(R) Awards, and spawn the certified Diamond, record-breaking, international juggernaut single, "Royals," and quadruple-platinum follow up "Team." The former cemented LORDE as "the youngest solo artist and the only New Zealander to achieve #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 since 1987." Time exalted her amongst the "Most Influential Teenagers in the World," she landed on Forbes's "30 Under 30" List, graced the cover of Rolling Stone and performed alongside Nirvana during the 2014 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony. She also curated the official soundtrack for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 and recorded "Yellow Flicker Beat" as the lead single. In 2017 LORDE released her second full-length studio album, Melodrama which debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 Chart, making her the first ever NZ artist to land a #1 debut album in the United States. The album reached #1 in over 45 countries and earned LORDE a nomination for Album of the Year at the 2018 GRAMMY(R) Awards. LORDE makes her highly anticipated return with critically acclaimed new single, "Solar Power," from her third full-length studio album, Solar Power, due out August 20th. LORDE currently has over 12 million albums sold worldwide and over 10 billion streams worldwide.
Each weeknight, James Corden invites the audience to join in on the fun as the Emmy Award-winning THE LATE LATE SHOW with JAMES CORDEN features a mix of celebrity guests, musical acts, games and sketches. The show holds the YouTube record for the most-watched late night clip with "Adele Carpool Karaoke," which has 240 million views. THE LATE LATE SHOW with JAMES CORDEN airs weeknights (12:37-1:37 AM, ET/PT) on CBS and is available to stream live and on demand on the CBS app and Paramount+. The show is distributed by ViacomCBS Global Distribution Group.
