Grammy-winning New Zealander Lorde created "Royals" and the rest of her debut album in her teen years. Ahead of the album's release, Lorde sat down with New Zealand's The Spinoff to talk about every song on the album, discuss her thoughts on her next album, and explain how Frank Ocean influenced the album.

Speaking about her song "The Louvre", Lorde explained how Ocean's dynamic 2016 album "Blonde" helped her with the arrangements for her record. It's just about new love, and how complicated it can be, and how infuriating, and how ideal it is as well. "In this sort of post-Blonde landscape, we can all sort of do whatever we want in terms of instrumentation", she said.

With its dry guitar opening, gleaming synths, and muffled anti-chorus, "The Louvre" is odd and surprising, and follows that ebb and flow - that "big dumb joy", as Lorde puts it - of falling in love.

It's now at number 20 on the chart. Having already played the likes of 'Green Light', 'Liability', 'Sober', 'Homemade Dynamite' and 'Perfect Places' on telly and at festival sets, three more cuts from the singer's second album were previewed. "I think I know what the next record is going to sound like, but of course I have no idea", she said. "It's gonna be really different to what I think it is right now".
