Hear Lorde’s Pure Heroine Outtake “Lost Boys”

Lorde has shared a snippet of a Pure Heroine outtake called “Lost Boys.” She posted it on her Tumblr earlier today, saying that she “found this little guy whilst trawling through my archives and thought it would be a cute thing to share with y’all.” The song was originally speculated to be called “Hospital” after it showed up as a demo in a New Zealand television segment in September 2013. “we spent a day on it and then never touched it again (it was not a good song, i promise, haha),” she wrote. “a lot of people asked what happened to lost boys, and i guess you’ll never hear the other three-quarters of the song, but there was something about these bridge melodies i thought was pretty.” Listen below.

found this little guy whilst trawling through my archives and thought it would be a cute thing to share with y’all. we wrote this song called lost boys in about march of last year, we spent a day on it and then never touched it again (it was not a good song, i promise, haha). a lot of people asked what happened to lost boys, and i guess you’ll never hear the other three-quarters of the song, but there was something about these bridge melodies i thought was pretty. so here you go – a little pre-christmas look at the cutting room floor. xo

ps. sorry for shitty iphone quality :~)

The only other piece of Lorde ephemera out there right now is an unreleased song apparently called “Good Fights,” which she played at a handful of shows last year.
