New Zealand’s teenage sensation Lorde has been heating up the music world with her smash hit “Royals” and her brutal honesty, and she’s following up with a brand new video for her latest single “Team.”
Shot in the Red Hook neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York, Lorde offers up a dark mystical video inspired by a dream she had a few months back.
“This video was born 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.”
“Team” is off Lorde’s September 2013 release Pure Heroine. Watch Lorde’s new video up top.
