Lorde Shares A Snippet Of New Track “Hospital”: Listen

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.

Does this sound promising to you? Be the judge in the comments below.

    I’d actually disagree on its sound. From what I can hear from the instrumentals, it is completely different from the musical make up of Pure Heroine, it sounds more uplifting. Also, the audio itself sounds like it’s being recorded from the studio with her singing into a microphone over the track than an actual, glossed over, finished product. Anyway, I’m in love with it already. It looks like Lorde’s coming back with some new-sounding material.

    This was actually on a TV piece in NZ which showed her recording the album so this one obviously didn’t make the album.
