Bruce Springsteen Covers Lorde’s “Royals”: Watch

8bd8e1cb487f4adecea80296028851a2 Bruce Springsteen Covers Lorde’s “Royals”: Watch

Bruce Springsteen opened his March 1 concert at Auckland, New Zealand, by covering Lorde‘s “Royals.” His solo, acoustic version contained a few choice edits — you can call him King Bee, for one — and would stray from the original’s melody, but it also showed why he related overall to the Pure Heroine anthem.

Springsteen stuck to playing an acoustic guitar and a harmonica, but eventually he played the original’s beat by pounding his fist on his guitar’s body. Around then, he hoarsely cursed because he can (“And every fucking song’s / gold teeth, Grey Goose…” ). And he repeated one of Lorde’s lyrics as if for emphasis, if not with his 1973 debut Greetings from Asbury Park, N.J., in mind: “And I’m not proud of my address, in a torn-up town / in a torn-up town …”
