Ahead of the album, Lorde released her breakthrough single, “Royals” which saw the fastest ever debut to #1 at ALT radio for a new artist, and is now enjoying its fourth consecutive week at #1. Watch the video for “Royals” HERE. Internationally acclaimed R&B sensation, The Weeknd just released a remixed version of the song over the weekend. Alongside “Royals”, Pure Heroine will feature fan favourite, “Tennis Court” and eight brand new tracks.
