Lorde performing in Boston in 2014

New Zealand singer and songwriter Lorde has recorded songs for two studio albums, one extended play (EP) and guest features. At the age of 13, she was signed to Universal Music Group (UMG) and started to write music.[1] In November 2012, when she was 16 years old,[2] she self-released The Love Club EP via SoundCloud.[3] It was made available for purchase in March 2013.[4] In September 2013, Lorde released her debut studio album Pure Heroine, which included "Royals". It was written and produced by Lorde and Little.[5] The extended edition of Pure Heroine also included songs from The Love Club EP, as well as a track entitled "No Better",[6] also written by Lorde and Little.[7]

Later that year, Lorde covered "Everybody Wants to Rule the World" (originally recorded by band Tears for Fears) for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire soundtrack, which was released in November.[8] In 2014, she appeared as a featured guest on Son Lux's track "Easy (Switch Screens)" for his Alternate Words EP.[9] Furthermore, Lorde recorded four songs for the soundtrack of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1.[10] The following year, she co-wrote and provided vocals on Disclosure's song "Magnets" from their album Caracal.[11] In 2017, Lorde released her second studio album, Melodrama. It was written and produced by Lorde and Jack Antonoff.[12]
