During her set, Lorde apologised to the crowd for having to skip some songs.
“Sorry about that, we have to skip a song or they’re going to cut us off. You don’t want to miss out on the best songs of the set, do you?” Lorde said.
She then launched into an emotional speech detailing her last year and the inspiration behind her next song, ‘Ribs’.
“Guys, this is a pretty big moment for us. This was the first big thing I ever booked. I called Jimmy [Mac, keyboardist], and I was like ‘Holy f**k we booked Coachella!’ We were screaming on the phone to each other.
“And since then – I think we booked this in May of last year – since then we’ve been all over the world, and we’ve seen so much, we’ve been to Europe, England, Australia, South America, we pretty much haven’t stopped.
“But every time we do something like this we try and tell ourselves, ‘We are so lucky to be here, this is mental’.
