Lorde was born Ella Yelich-O'Connor on November 7, 1996 in Takapuna, Aukland, New Zealand and raised in Devonport, Aukland, New Zealand. She is the daughter of prize-winning poet, Sonja Yelich, and civil engineer, Vic O’Connor, and is one of four children. Her talent surfaced at a very young age when she discovered her love of performing after attending an acting group. She discovered her love of performing at a very early age and went on to perform in her intermediate school talent show. When the videos surfaced from that performance, she signed with Universal Records for a development deal at only age 12.
In 2012, her debut EP, The Love Club, was released on the web. Initially, it was posted as a free download, but once the song was downloaded over 60,000 times, and its success became clear, her management took down the song to release the EP to the market in March 2013. It peaked at number two on the New Zealand charts and stayed ranked for 41 weeks. It also ranked on the Billboard top 100 and went multiplatinum across the world.
The most notable and award winning track from this EP is her song "Royals." When it debuted, "Royals" topped music charts all over the world and won countless awards, including multiple awards. The song was written as an antithesis to the culture of today's pop music, hitting on the lifestyle of the not so rich and famous, while still voicing the dreams of many. This sensational song was an introduction to the unique style and lyrics of this young artist, and is also included in her first album, Pure Heroine..
The Love Club EP was followed by a second EP, Tennis Court in June of 2013, before the release of her full length album, Pure Heroine, in September 2013. With great reviews, this album features her most popular songs, including, "Royals," "Team," and "Tennis Courts." From the release of this album, a United Kingdom and Australian tour was born, leading to fall dates in the US.
