Krist Novoselic "Royals" (Lorde cover)
Published Mar 12, 2014Proving that Lorde's reign over pop culture did not die with 2013, her music continues to be passed around and covered. It seems like the UK synth-pop band Chvrches crank out a Lorde cover over breakfast each morning, and more and more rappers keep jumping on her ubiquitous hit "Royals." Most recently, that song has found an unlikely performer in Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic.
At a benefit for FairVote in Takoma Park, MD, Novoselic busted out an accordion and performed a loose, instrumental cover of the song.
Check it out below. We're guessing this won't be the last time we hear an accordion version of this song, since "Weird Al" Yankovic has yet to have his turn.
