MTV Push: Lorde

Get to know Lorde from New Zeeland!

Ella Yelich-O’Connor is a singer/songwriter from New Zealand who goes by the stage name Lorde. __“When I was trying to come up with a stage name, I thought ‘Lord’ was super rad, but really masculine — ever since I was a little kid, I have been really into royals and aristocracy. So to make Lord more feminine, I just put an ‘e’ on the end!” __

She got signed at the age of twelve when her manager saw a video from her school talent show where she performed Duffy’s “Warwick Avenue”. At 16 she has become an Internet sensation with the video for her debut single, ‘Royals,’ which has been viewed over 10 million times.

Her first EP, ‘the Love Club EP’, launched in March 2013 and got followed up with the single ‘Tennis Court’ in June. Recently Lorde also launched her debut CD ‘Pure Heroine’. We’re happy to announce she’s our MTV October PUSH! Stay with us and get to know Lorde better throughout the month.
