Today on her Tumblr, the singer shared a snippet of the song “Lost Boys”; which ended up on the cutting room floor when she was putting together her debut LP, Pure Heroine.
The message in full reads:
found this little guy whilst trawling through my archives and thought it would be a cute thing to share with y’all. we wrote this song called lost boys in about march of last year, we spent a day on it and then never touched it again (it was not a good song, i promise, haha). a lot of people asked what happened to lost boys, and i guess you’ll never hear the other three-quarters of the song, but there was something about these bridge melodies i thought was pretty. so here you go – a little pre-christmas look at the cutting room floor. xo
ps. sorry for shitty iphone quality :~)
It’s actually rather catchy. Have a listen over on Lorde’s site.
And watch her recent performance of “Yellow Flicker Beat” at the AMAs.
