Religious types will tell ya Sunday is the Lord's day, but Friday, June 16, is truly Lorde Day. 

Today, the 20-year-old pop superstar born Ella Yelich-O'Connor dropped her highly anticipated sophomore album, the excellent Melodrama, and announced plans for a North American tour. As you can see, she's pumped:  

 

MELODRAMA OUT WORLDWIDE, WITCH JUMPING FOR JOY �� ����

But is there a Minnesota tour date?! You bet there is: March 23, 2018, at St. Paul's Xcel Energy Center. Tickets — $39.50-$99.50 — go on sale June 23 at noon via Ticketmaster and the venue box office. Get pre-sale info here. Lorde's 2013-'14 tour in support of her debut album, Pure Heroine, skipped Minnesota, but she did cover the Replacements once, so we forgive her. 

As you count the hours until March 23, read the latest from City Pages music editor Keith Harris: Lorde gets drunk, gets even, and gets out of her teens alive on Melodrama.

Happy Lorde Day!
