Song information
Other versions of this music sheet: Version 1  Version 2  
"Royals" is a song recorded by New Zealand singer-songwriter Lorde for her extended play debut, The Love Club EP (released on 22 November 2012, two weeks after Lorde's sixteenth birthday) and re-included on her September 2013 debut studio album, Pure Heroine. Following The Love Club's March 2013 debut retail release and the album's release, "Royals" was released again as a single on 20 October 2013, spearheading the promotion of both EP and album. The song had been drafted by Lorde in a half-hour and then refined with co-writer/composer Joel Little, the single's producer. According to the pair this – minimal and art pop single – is a "response to everything that's on pop radio", with lyrics that revolve around aspirationalism, counterpointing pop artists' luxurious lifestyles. Ella Maria Lani Yelich-O'Connor (born 7 November 1996), known by her stage name Lorde (/ˈlɔrd/), is a New Zealand. Show piano letters!
Artist information
Ella Maria Lani Yelich-O'Connor (born 7 November 1996), known by her stage name Lorde (/ˈlɔrd/), is a New Zealand singer-songwriter. Born and raised in Devonport, Auckland, she performed in various singing and drama classes as a child, and at the age of thirteen signed with Universal. Yelich-O'Connor adopted her stage name due to her fascination with "royals and aristocracy", but felt the name Lord was too masculine so added an 'e' to make it more feminine.

Did you know?
PIANO – THE ENCHANTING MUSICAL INSTRUMENT IS BACK WITH A BACKUP OF TECHNOLOGY TO MAKE LEARNING MORE FUN AND EASIER FOR YOU  Some activities are so easy to nurture in childhood but as time passes by, they become difficult to even perform. Such an activity is playing piano. Everybody loves to play piano when they are young but with the passing time, commitments in the educational front, the professional front and then the family front, come and replace the priority of playing piano. There are ways you can revive your old habit of playing piano. One of them is trying out solo playing and ensemble playing both; with the help music sheets of course because your separation from the instrument for such a long time might not let you remember everything you had learned. Playing in both these styles will let you know where you fit the best. An audience does work like magic to bring out the artist in you. Spread the word of your returning to the world of piano. Get some music sheets and try to organize family gatherings where you can play in front of an audience. It could be a small group people or just a couple or two. The size of the audience does not matter, what matters is that the revived spirit that you will experience when playing piano for them.   (More...)
