'South Park' Releases Full Lorde Parody Song (Probably Sung by Sia)
Lorde got us excited with her new Hunger Games anthem “Yellow Flicker Beat,” but alas, there’s still no release date for her highly anticipated sophomore album. But we’re in luck! There’s new “Lorde” music, thanks to South Park and Sia.
The show just released the full version of “Push (Feeling Good on a Wednesday)” for our streaming pleasure, after the song appeared on Oct. 8’s episode, “The Cissy.” The real-life Lorde has done a little rendition of the immortal “ya, ya” sequence, but this is the real thing: "Lorde" sung by Sia, according to most reports and our ears (although Sia's reps wouldn't confirm it).
A subplot focuses on Stan Marsh's dad, Randy, who pretends to be Lorde in order to gain access to the women's bathroom at work (the previous week, he played the part at a party, looking to impress the kids). A fictional Spin reporter then arrives in South Park, looking to expose the very obvious truth -- that "Lorde" is really a 45-year old geologist.
In the video below, Randy shares his secret path to pop stardom:
