The hands-down dopest 16-year-old singer-songwriter from New Zealand in the game right nowLorde, played her first two North American shows this month — both of them sold out, obviously — and now she’s prepping for stateside superstardom with the release of her debut album, Pure Heroine. (Absurdly great album title, no?)

Pure Heroine includes her first two singles, “Royals” and “Tennis Court,” as well as eight new tracks; the cover artwork reinforces her enigmatic public image with clean gray-and-white lines. (Surely it says something that her face isn’t on the cover, right?)

The LP drops September 30th in the United States and October 28 in the UK. Expect an absurd amount of hype, and music that actually delivers on it; sincerely, she has yet to disappoint. Check the full tracklist below.

1. Tennis Court 2. 400 Lux 3. Royals 4. Ribs 5. Buzzcut Season 6. Team 7. Glory And Gore 8. Still Sane 9. White Teeth Teens 10. A World Alone
