This song “Royals” by young up and comer Lorde (Ella Yelich-O’Connor, a sixteen-year-old New Zealand singer-songwriter) came up in a random Indie playlist I happened upon. The beat caught me right off. I saw the title and knew I needed to look up the lyrics. (I’ve been plotting a story featuring a royal witch and the 1/4 blood witch he’s interested in.)

The lyrics to this song are brilliant. It’s not exact match for my book but I’m claiming it as the theme song anyway.

Have a listen below. And check out the lyrics here.
