Lorde Shares Unreleased ‘Pure Heroine’ Track

Lorde has dug through her archives and shared with fans a clip from an un-released potential Pure Heroine song, Lost Boys, that ended up on the cutting room floor. Lorde says the track didn’t make the cut simply because “it was not a good song”.

“Found this little guy whilst trawling through my archives and thought it would be a cute thing to share with y’all, ” wrote Lorde, introducing the song sample on her Tumblr. “We wrote this song called lost boys in about march of last year, we spent a day on it and then never touched it again (it was not a good song, i promise, haha).”

“A lot of people asked what happened to lost boys, and i guess you’ll never hear the other three-quarters of the song,” continued Lorde, securing on the fate of the song she worked on with producer Joel Little.

“But there was something about these bridge melodies i thought was pretty. so here you go – a little pre-christmas look at the cutting room floor,” she concluded before apologising for the recording’s “s**tty iphone quality”.

Lorde shared her first new music since 2013's Pure Heroine this year with her various contributions to The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Pt. 1 soundtrack, which the 18-year-old also curated. Her contributions included her single Yellow Flicker Beat, as well as collaborations with The Chemical Brothers and Miguel as well as Stromae, Pusha T, Q-Tip and Haim.
