Lorde – Precious Metals
Lorde returns with a brand new song titled Precious Metals. The Kiwi singer donated $5000 to Starship in an effort towards funding five new portable neurology monitors.
Auckland burger joint Burger Burger shared a call for donations on its Instagram page.
“Some of you may be familiar with this smile. This is our beautiful burger baby Miss Olympia.
“She had a major brain injury just before she was born & now we spend A LOT of time at Starship, a hospital filled with beautiful humans trying to make NZ’s children better each & everyday they need our help.”
Lorde surprised fans when she performed a cover of “Lost” from Frank Ocean’s Channel Orange album this weekend at Primavera Sound, Barcelona. This isn’t the first time she has covered one of his songs, previously taking on “Solo” during her tour stop in Milwaukee back in March.
The New Zealand artist has previously expressed how Blonde was a major inspiration for her acclaimed album Melodrama. She puts her own twist on the song, as an intimate, stripped down, and emotional cover.
