[[OverlyLongName Ella Marija Lani Yelich-O'Connor]], [[SomeCallMeTim better known]] by her {{stage name|s}} of Lorde (born November 7, 1996), is an indie pop singer from New Zealand. Her music deals with the problems of adolescence, paralleled with her own rise to fame. Her debut release, ''The Love Club EP'', went #2 in her own country, and her songs "Royals" and "Tennis Court" went #1. In September 2013, she released ''Music/PureHeroine'' worldwide, which gained critical acclaim for its production and lyrical content. It gained an UpdatedRerelease in December 2013, featuring a bonus track, "No Better", songs from ''The Love Club EP'', and the "Tennis Court" B-side "[[Music/TheReplacements Swingin Party]]". The closest comparison her music could get is Music/LanaDelRey. Dedicated to the darker sides of growing up, and life. She taps into the same disillusionment around the world right now. If younger and less glossy. She's won 2 Grammys and 1 BRIT.
