She goes by Lorde on stage, but her real name is Ella Yelich-O'Connor. Lorde is a sixteen year old singer/songwriter from New Zealand who started writing songs at the young age of thirteen. Commenting on her songwriting, Lorde said "my mum's a poet and we've always had so many books, and songwriting has always been a big thing for me."
Lorde gets inspiration from soul singer Etta James. Her EP The Love Club has been out since March of this year. After hearing her single Royals I have been anticipating the full album. Pure Heroine will be hitting iTunes as well as store shelves on Sept. 30th! Royals will be the third track on the album and has become a new favorite on our Shooting Stars countdown!
She just released a brand new song called Team which you can listen to below. I love it, what do you think?
