New Zealand’s chart-topping teenager Lorde has premiered a brand new video for her third single “Team“. This is the third single from Lorde’s debut album Pure Heroine, following overwhelmingly successful releases “Royals” and “Tennis Court” and was co-written by NZ songwriter Joel Little. The single was released back in September via Universal Music, holding on to this little gem of a video until now.
The sixteen-year-old wunderkind posted on 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.”
