Lorde soaks in the dim light during her concert at Webster Hall in New York City on Monday night (September 30).
The night afterwards, the 16-year-old singer from New Zealand joined Rebel Wilson on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.
“I wasn’t expecting the Love Club EP to do what it’s doing. Not by a long shot. To see it in the top 10 on iTunes in the United States is one of those ludicrous things I’ll never get used to. I remember getting 10,000 plays on SoundCloud in the first few days of it being up, and tweeting [Kids of 88 contributor] Joel [Little] about it. I used the word booya. Look at us now,” she recently wrote for The Southland Times.
Lorde continued, “I think what’s crazy about the success of that EP is the selfishness of it all. Songwriting is selfish – I make music for myself, using it as an outlet, something to fulfill my creative desires – yet the rewards of deciding to write something can keep an artist going for a lifetime, can whip me across datelines, throw me under lights.”
