Lorde Covered Kings of Leon When She Was 12, Confirms Ariana Grande Song on ‘Mockingjay’ Soundtrackby Ali Szubiak | PopCrush
Between the recent discovery of a mixtape made by legendary Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain, and this new footage of a 12-year-old Lorde covering Kings of Leon‘s massive hit ‘Use Somebody,’ it looks like this week is all about finding out just how talented our favorite artists have been pretty much since their inception.
According to Time, the audio of the young New Zealand singer is reportedly from an Auckland radio station visit she made when she was 12-years-old. It’s a fantastic cover and displays perfectly just how much talent the young singer has always had. It’s hard to believe she was a pre-teen at the time! Although the audio has apparently been circulating around the Internet for a while, this particular version has been resurfacing lately and certainly caught our attention! Check out the audio above!
As if that’s not enough, Lorde also confirmed via Twitter today (Nov. 3) that the fifth track on “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part I” soundtrack (of which Lorde is curating) will, in fact, feature powerhouse singer Ariana Grande. She went on to reveal the name of the song as ‘All My Love.’
When Lorde first released the tracklist for the soundtrack, all but song five had titles and artists attached to them, causing Internet-wide speculation over who the secret track would feature. Although Lorde went on to explain that there was no intentional secret being kept from fans, simply that “it’s just not quite finished,” that didn’t stop fans from guessing who would be on it. Now that we know it’s Ariana, we’re more excited than ever for the soundtrack to be released!
