Lorde lounges back on the cover of Billboard‘s November 8th issue.
The 18-year-old singer/songwriter opened up to the mag about taking over control of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 soundtrack, not being the best phone caller and more. Check it:
On approaching other artists for the soundtrack: “I’m the worst person ever at talking to people I don’t know on the phone — I can’t even order pizza. I would put off calling him [Kayne West]. I’d say, it’s 12:57, I’ll do it at 1.”
On taking creative control of the album: “It would’ve been selfish for me to make ambient house music. With a film like that, everyone likes it, not just people like me. I knew this was right for me as an artist and I felt it would be cool for my career. People that see me as having a couple of hits and performing on an awards show would see that, between records, I’d committed to a pretty serious body of work.”
Taylor Swift on Lorde: “She brings an intelligence, an edge and a wit that we haven’t seen in mainstream pop music in a very long time. We play each other new music we’re working on. We cheer each other on. I’m so lucky to have her in my life.”
