Best Covers: Lorde “New York”

Since kicking off her Melodrama tour last month, Lorde has treated audiences across the US to surprise live covers. In Toronto, she tackled hometown hero Drake (“Shot For Me”); while in Chicago, it was a no brainer to put her own spin on Kanye West (“Love Lockdown); and she gifted Milwaukee’s crowd with some Frank Ocean (“Solo”).

During her set at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, the New Zealand pop singer honored the city and its locals with a cover of St. Vincent’s “New York”. Super producer Jack Antonoff — with whom Lorde worked extensively on Melodrama — made a cameo appearance and accompanied her on acoustic guitar.
