Lorde – “Team” Video

To close out the year of our Lorde, the newest superstar on the block has released a video for the followup single to the massive “Royals.” If you haven’t picked up Pure Heroine yet, “Team” is a worthy successor and will put to bed anyone doubting Lorde’s success beyond a one hit wonder. The video (which actually broke Vevo for a while — kudos) sees the popstress surrounded by water-guzzling acolytes, singing from a throne of sorts in the middle of an overgrown and abandoned ruin. Watch the video and read some words from the Kiwi star below.

From Facebook:


this video was borne from a dream i had a few months ago about teenagers in their own world, a world with hierarchies and initiations, where the boy who was second in command had acne on his face, and so did the girl who was queen. i dreamt about this world being so different to anything anyone had ever seen, a dark world full of tropical plants and ruins and sweat. and of this world, i dreamt about tests that didn’t need to be passed in order to be allowed in: sometimes the person who loses is stronger. enjoy xx

Lorde’s debut Pure Heroine is out now via Universal.
