Lorde Thanks New Zealand In News Ad

lorde-thank-you-letterLorde took out a full-page ad in New Zealand Herald to send a handwritten thank-you letter to her entire homeland. Then, in her performance at the Laneway Sideshow in Auckland’s Silo Park she covered James Blake’s ‘Retrograde’ and Son Lux’s ‘Easy.’

Lorde: ‘Hiya. If you are reading this, Joel & I won. HOLY CRAP. It was a crazy day & my friends and family over here are still freaking out. I just wanted to say thank you for the time you’ve given me these past 14 months. Finding out about me online or in between these pages or in your headphone.

‘Without your support, there’s no way I would ever have gotten to stand in the middle of the Staples Centre & perform in my school shoes. I can’t wait for tonight’s show. Together we’ll make it magic. I’ll see you there. xxx L’

    She sounds sooo good. So happy for her!

  • Just saying

    She should thank Selena Gomez for covering her songs at her concerts last year…. that’s how I learned of Lorde. No one even ever heard of her or her music until it was on the news last summer that Selena Gomez was covering her song & that’s how word got out about Royals.

      just because thats how you heard of her doesn’t mean thats how most other people heard of her. just saying…selenas not the type to discover undiscovered artists, which is why most of her covers are katy perry or britney spears. lorde was pretty famous before selena started to sing her songs. i think you may have just been a little….slow.
