Lorde – VH1’s You Oughta Know artist for September and the forthcoming MTV Artist to Watch – has quickly grown into a veritable alternative pop phenomenon worldwide. After blossoming into a #1 artist in her native New Zealand, she released her platinum-selling and history-making debut single “Royals” in the summer of 2013. As she sold out shows everywhere, the song managed to achieve the #1 spot on the Billboard Alternative Chart for six straight weeks—the longest run at the top for any female artist ever. Everything has led up to the release of her debut for LAVA/Republic Records, Pure Heroine, out September 30 and streaming now. Fans may now pre-order an exclusive Pure Heroine package from Lorde and VH1. Along with the CD, fans will receive a limited edition Lorde “Folio” including a series of prints showcasing her lyrics and photos.
This Heroine is saving pop music.
