“These songs were fun explorations on the album journey,” Lorde says. “They didn’t quite fit into the tracklist for whatever reason but they’re both big tunes.”
“We wrote [Helen of Troy] super quickly in the tiniest room at Westlake where we did a bunch of Melo and it was fun the whole time,” she adds. “It’s super off the cuff lyrically, almost ad-libbed, and you can hear me starting to figure out some album themes…”
“[Hold No Grudge] is a sort of composite portrait of when relationships turn sour, being trapped in the ice but remembering the warmth.”
