Lorde revealed a new music video for her latest 'Pure Heroine' single, "Team", which was shot in Red Hook, Brooklyn and directed by Young Replicant. The new visual features a fantasy world where teenagers of all kinds run the town and Lorde herself finally gets to be Queen B. Lorde said on Twitter when asked why she loved the "Team" video so much, "It was important to me that we cast real people with real faces. Holla acne!" Here's what the 17-year-old singer has to say about the video regarding the concept:
"this video was borne from a dream i had a few months ago about teenagers in their own world, a world with hierarchies and initiations, where the boy who was second in command had acne on his face, and so did the girl who was queen. i dreamt about this world being so different to anything anyone had ever seen, a dark world full of tropical plants and ruins and sweat. and of this world, i dreamt about tests that didn't need to be passed in order to be allowed in: sometimes the person who loses is stronger. enjoy xx"
