Granted nobody knew who Lorde was at the beginning of the Summer, but as the dog days came to a close, every Top 40 radio station was playing the 16-year-old’s hit song, “Royals” every hour on the hour.
Today, MTV had been gifted with the chance to let fans of the New Zealand-based singer-songwriter to take a listen to her debut album, Pure Heroine.
In what is an unlikely move for someone who is trying to break into the nitty-gritty world of pop music, the singer to this day has only played a total of ten shows and has does less than a handful of face to face interviews with publications. But things are looking up for her since “Royals” has been able to make it to the number three spot on the Billboard 100 without the help of a music video, publicity or interviews.
Pure Heroine is her first length album scheduled to be released next week. The upcoming album follows her EP, The Love Club, which was actually released earlier this year. For now, enjoy the debut here.
