Lorde embarked on her Melodrama tour in 2017 and 2018, but it wasn't until recently that a video went viral of her shushing fans while singing "Writer In The Dark." After getting meme-ified, the singer addressed the clip in a post shared by a fan account on Instagram with the caption “Lorde just wanted me to share this video with y’all.”

“OK, I just woke up. I just wanted to talk about this thing of me shushing people at my shows,” she says from bed. “That was something I did in that one song, a couple of times, when I wanted to sing it a capella and/or off the microphone so people could hear me, and because I wanted to try something different. If you come to my shows, you know it’s like an hour and a half of all of us singing and screaming together.”

She also reminded people what the name of the album the song comes off of is called. “Also, that dramatic a** move was literally for an album called Melodrama so…don’t stress too hard.”

Lorde took it one step further and not only performed the song during a show over the weekend, but encouraged her fans to sing along with her. "Let's show those trolls what we're all about" she said during the performance. The pop star is currently on tour in support of her latest album Solar Power.
