Lorde on Springsteen Covering 'Royals:' 'It's Crazy, I Got Teary'
Pop sensation Lorde has responded to Bruce Springsteen's cover of her signature song "Royals." As the singer notes (via News.com.au), she considers the Boss's cover the highest honour:

"My Twitter went mental, everyone in New Zealand was like 'You can't believe what just happened!' It was so exciting, it was the highest honour. He's such an incredible songwriter. I got a little teary. It was very cool.

"It's crazy when someone like that is covering your song. Those words were nothing before I put them into my laptop and started messing around with them in the studio. It's crazy to me they could come out of someone's mouth who is that respected."

Springsteen opened his Auckland concert last week with a gruff, acoustic rendition of the track. It is the latest in a series of covers of local artists that the Boss has performed on his Australasian tour. Previously, he has performed songs by AC/DC, the Bee Gees and INXS.
