Lorde Shares 'Lost Boys' Snippet on Tumblr

Lorde was photographed on October 8, 2014 at Milk Studios in Los Angeles.

While digging through the archives, Lorde found an unreleased song, "Lost Boys," that she recorded in one day, back in March 2013.

The snippet of "Lost Boys" that Lorde shared on her Tumblr is "shitty iPhone quality," which she apologizes for, and yet, while she claims "it's not a good song," there's potential.

"We'll stay at your house/ Watch all those late shows on TV/ I like you best when you're right here with me," she sings. (Who can't relate? And it's perfect for the holdiay season.)

She shared a note of the song on her Tumblr, which reads:

"found this little guy whilst trawling through my archives and thought it would be a cute thing to share with y’all. we wrote this song called lost boys in about march of last year, we spent a day on it and then never touched it again (it was not a good song, i promise, haha). a lot of people asked what happened to lost boys, and i guess you’ll never hear the other three-quarters of the song, but there was something about these bridge melodies i thought was pretty. so here you go - a little pre-christmas look at the cutting room floor. xo

ps. sorry for shitty iphone quality :~)"
