‘Royals’ Song Inspired By Baseball Jersey
In the song the New Zealand native talks about jet planes, islands, and tigers on a gold leash-things that have absolutely nothing to do with baseball.
However, in an interview with VH1 she connects the two:
“I had this image from the National Geographic of this dude just signing baseballs,” Lorde told us when we sat down with her recently. “He was a baseball player and his shirt said, ‘Royals.’ ” Lorde was so taken by the image and the word that she penned the song around that idea. “It was just that word. It’s really cool.”
Lorde ain’t playing games when it comes to creativity.
