The New Zealand artist has covered Spears’ song, which originally featured on the latter’s 2007 album ‘Blackout’, in addition to a new live rendition of her own track ‘Fallen Fruit’.
Performing the two tracks for Vogue, Lorde’s Alfred Marroquin-directed live performance sees her singing in the grounds of the New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx.

Robyn contributed a spoken-word verse to ‘Secrets From A Girl (Who’s Seen It All)’, which features on Lorde’s new album ‘Solar Power’.
“I think there’s just so much room in Robyn’s world for being a hot mess or being this sort of ball of emotions shooting out in every direction,” Lorde told NME.
“I think about a song like ‘Call Your Girlfriend’ – she’s not in a traditional hero’s role; she’s telling someone to break up with their girlfriend so they can be with her. But she’s also having a huge amount of empathy for that other woman – that is some really big, complex adult shit to be tackling in a dancefloor banger!”
Lorde was set to perform live at this weekend’s MTV Video Music Awards but her performance was cancelled last week due to “a change in production elements”.
