New Zealand-based singer-songwriter Lorde snags 2013 Silver Scroll Award for ‘Royals’
Congratulations are in order for Lorde. The New Zealand singer-songwriter just picked up her first awards for her chart-topping alternative radio single, “Royals. According to The New Zealand Herald, the 16-year-old singer has just scored the Silver Scroll Award from the Australasian Performing Rights Association.
The 10,000 New Zealand songwriters who are members of the association voted for who should win the Silver Scroll, and Lorde was stoked to receive such a high honor from her peers. Accepting the award, Lorde said, “What’s cool about this is I’m so new to this, and everyone has really accepted me, which is awesome.””
Lorde wrote “Royals” with the help of co-writer Joel Little, who joined her on stage to receive the honor. He stated, “It’s taken me 10 years to get up on this stage, and it’s taken you just 10 months. You’re kind of annoying.” He added, “The scary part of it is, you definitely haven’t written your best song.”
“Royals” appears on Lorde’s debut full-length, “Pure Heroine,” which is available now.
