Ella Marija Lani Yelich-O'Connor (born 7 November 1996), known by her stage name Lorde, is a New Zealand singer and songwriter. Born in Takapuna and raised in Devonport, Auckland, she became interested in performing as a child. In her early teens, she signed with Universal Music Group and was later paired with the songwriter and record producer Joel Little, who co-wrote and produced most of Lorde's works.

Lorde's music consists of the subgenres of electronica, pop and rock, including dream pop and indietronica.

Lorde chose her stage name because she was fascinated with "royals and aristocracy". However, she felt the name Lord was too masculine, thus she added an "e" to make it more feminine.

Wait till you're announced
We've not yet lost all our graces
The hounds will stay in chains
Look upon your greatness
And she'll send the call out
Send the call out, send the call out...

Call all the ladies out
They're in their finery
A hundred jewels on throats
A hundred jewels between teeth
Now bring my boys in
Their skin in craters like the moon
The moon we love like a brother
While he glows through the room
Dancing around the lies we tell
Dancing around big eyes as well
Even the comatose, they don't dance and tell

We live in cities you'll never see on-screen
Not very pretty
But we sure know how to run things
Living in ruins of a palace within my dreams
And you know we're on each other's team

I'm kind of over
Getting told to throw my hands up in the air
So there

So all the cups got broke
Shards beneath our feet
But it wasn't my fault

And everyone's competing
For a love they won't receive
Because what this palace wants is release

We live in cities you'll never see on-screen
Not very pretty
But we sure know how to run things
Living in ruins of a palace within my dreams
And you know we're on each other's team

I'm kind of over
Getting told to throw my hands up in the air
So there

I'm kind of older than I was
When I reveled without a care
So there

We live in cities you'll never see on screen
Not very pretty
But we sure know how to run things
Living in ruins of a palace within my dreams
And you know we're on each other's team
We're on each other's team
And you know we're on each other's team
We're on each other's team
And you know, and you know, and you know













The music video for "Team" was directed by Young Replicant. Filmed in an abandoned building named Red Hook Grain Terminal in Red Hook, Brooklyn, the video was inspired by Lorde's dream of "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". The director explained that Lorde was one of the "kids who have a unique look", which fitted the clip's "sad story" concept.
