Watch Lorde cover Frank Ocean and perform unreleased song

Star took on 'Solo' at her show in Milwaukee

Lorde performed an unreleased song as well as a Frank Ocean cover at a live show this week.

The New Zealand singer kicked off her North American tour in Milwaukee on Thursday night (March 1).

During the gig, she covered Ocean’s ‘Blonde’ cut ‘Solo’ and played an unheard number.


According to Pitchfork, the latter is an unreleased song written during her ‘Melodrama’ album sessions. Its title is not currently known.

Lorde is currently on tour with Run The Jewels, who she recently teamed up with for a remix of ‘Supercut’. Mitski is set to join the tour later in the stint.

Last week, Lorde denied that she is dating Bleachers‘ Jack Antonoff following recent rumours and speculation.


Antonoff produced the New Zealand star’s latest record ‘Melodrama’NME‘s Album of the Year for 2017.

Tabloid reports have linked the pair romantically following Antonoff’s recent split from long-term girlfriend Lena Dunham.

Speaking to fans in an Instagram Live video, Lorde said: “Guys: Never. No. Jack and I are not dating. For the last time.”

“I love him, he’s awesome,” she added. “But we’re not dating. Please!”

Last month saw Lorde win the Best International Solo Artist prize at the VO5 NME Awards 2018. She couldn’t attend the ceremony, but you can see the message she sent in the clip above.
