Songwriting phenomenon Lorde is headed to Minnesota, and will stop in St. Paul for her 2018 North American tour.

The New Zealander released her second album, Melodrama, on Friday. It's the follow-up to her wildly successful debut, Pure Heroine, which she released as a 16-year-old in 2013 on the back of her single "Royals."

She will tour in support of her new album next year, making a stop at the Xcel Energy Center on March 23. It'll be her first performance in Minnesota.

Tickets will go on general sale next Friday, June 23, at 10 a.m., with fans signed up to her email list getting first access to presale tickets. The price is anywhere from $39.50-$99.50.

If you're not familiar with what to expect from Melodrama, Lorde has dropped four songs – starting with "Green Light" in March and following it up with "Liability," "Sober," and current single "Perfect Places."

It's the latest in a series of concert announcements at the Xcel, with shows from Arcade Fire, The Weeknd, and Harry Styles playing the arena over the next 12 months.
