Watch Lorde and Jack Antonoff cover St Vincent in New York

The ‘Melodrama’ tour came through the Barclays Centre in Brooklyn this week.

The US leg of Lorde’s ‘Melodrama’ world tour has seen the singer playing a whole series of cover versions across the tour. This week, she played the Barclays Centre in Brooklyn, and paid tribute to the city by covering St Vincent’s ‘New York’ with Jack Antonoff.

It comes after she performed versions of Kanye West tracks ‘Love Lockdown’ and ‘Runaway’ at her recent Chicago show.

Elsewhere on the tour - which also features Run The Jewels, Mitski and Tove Styrke - the singer has taken on a cover version of Frank Ocean’s ‘Blonde’ highlight ‘Solo’.
