A belated happy birthday to Lorde who celebrated another trip around the sun recently on her mammoth world tour of Melodrama. In her recent show in Christchurch she unleashed a poignant cover/mash-up of The Boss.
The cover of Bruce Springsteen’s ‘I’m On Fire’ was performed by the Kiwi singer with aplomb. As well as taking on the hit, the track was also gently spliced with Lorde’s own hit ‘400 Lux’ and was equally poignant and poetically performed.
It’s a testament to her artistry that almost any cover she takes on is doused with her own vibe, her own style and her own musicality. She recently took on Phil Collins’ tom-thumping banger ‘In The Air Tonight’ for the Live Lounge and you can see both of them just below.
