Lorde pushes cheating boyfriend into pool in video for Disclosure collaboration ‘Magnets’ – watch

Single appears on duo's new album 'Caracal'

Lorde appears in the video for Disclosure collaboation ‘Magnets’. Watch the video below.

In the videio Lorde plays a woman with whom a man is cheating on his wife. When she realises what is happening, she gets her revenge by tying him to a chair and pushing him in a swimming pool.

Lorde explained some of the meaning behind the video on Twitter. “One of my life goals has always been to one day play a hitgirl who pretends to seduce then burns alive douchey boyfriends,” she wrote. “The most important part of the video is when you see her black eye as she turns away at the window. Hope it all makes sense from that point.”

‘Magnets’ appears on Disclosure’s new album ‘Caracal’. The album was released last week (September 25) and is currently on course for Number One this week ahead of competition from Chvrches and New Order. The album features guests incuding The Weeknd and Gregory Porter, as well as the single ‘Omen’ featuring Sam Smith.

Disclosure also recently announced details of four UK gigs to take place in November and December.

The duo will play dates in Glasgow and Manchester, plus two nights at London’s Alexandra Palace toward the end of the year.

Disclosure’s 2013 debut, ‘Settle’, went straight to Number One in the UK and was later nominated for that year’s Mercury Prize.

Disclosure will play:

Glasgow SSE Hydro (November 26)
Manchester Central (November 28)
London Alexandra Palace (December 1, 2)
