Listen: Lorde “Team”

New Zealand sensation Lorde returns with a new track in advance of full album release

Lorde recently released a new song while on tour in Paris. “Team” is an ode to her friends and hometown in New Zealand.

The 16-year-old Ella Yelich-O’Connor describes the track:

“i am in paris as i release this. every street we drive down makes my eyes pop with the most incredible things carved in stone, and gilded on pillars, and wrought with metal; the heroes and heroines of this city aren’t so hard to find. this song’s are a little more mismatched, less classic courtesans on their pedestals, but nonetheless brilliant. this song is kinda of that world, and at the same time, very much of this one. enjoy.”

Lorde’s debut album, Pure Heroine rolls out September 27 on Universal.
