Lorde jumped on Tumblr this morning (December 17) to share a snippet of a new track called “Hospital”. The darkly humorous jam isn’t featured on the upcoming extended version of Pure Heroine, leading to speculation that it’s an unused demo or a glimpse at a future project.
“Hospital” definitely wouldn’t sound out of place on the Kiwi’s blockbuster debut. In fact, it sounds like a rehash of “Tennis Court” — only instead of being bored at a sporting complex, Lorde is hanging out in the emergency ward. “We were down at the hospital, waiting for you to get well,” she sings miserably. I like it. Listen to the 17-year-old’s latest after the jump.
