Lorde releases her debut single Royals. The single is featured on her extended play album The Love Club. Lorde wrote the lyrics to Royals herself in half an hour.
Yeah, I was just at my house, and I wrote it before I went to the studio. I wrote it in like half an hour—the lyrics, anyway. I wrote all the lyrics and took them to the studio and my producer (Joel Little) was like, “Yeah, this is cool.” We worked on that and on two other songs on the EP in a week, and just did a little bit every day.
