During a recent show at Christchurch, New Zealand, Lorde surprised fans with a cover of Bruce Springsteen’s “I’m On Fire.” Stripping away dramatic theatrics, the rendition played out as a haunting folk tune that, carried by the same guitar melody, later morphs seamlessly into her Pure Heroine track, “400 Lux.”

Before the performance, Lorde says that it was her friend / Grammy-winning producer Joel Little, who introduced her to the song just at the start of writing Melodrama. This recent discovery of the classic must’ve lent a fresh perspective on the track, which she states, “is a special one.”

Lorde will be performing at the Wells Fargo Center on April 2nd with the smoke-show supporting lineup of Run the Jewels and Mitski. Find info on tickets to the show at the XPN Concert Calendar.
