Lorde’s younger sister Indy Yelich will be releasing her debut single ‘Threads’ tomorrow (Thursday 15th September).
The song will be the first publicly released music from the up-and-coming New Zealand artist.
However, Yelich has published volumes of poetry in the past, giving us a taste of what to expect from her writing.
“My debut song Threads will be out on Thursday September 15th. I can’t wait to hear him. I lived with this song on the subway, drove around for a second now and played it in friends’ cars,” the 23-year-old wrote on Instagram.
The post also shared the single artwork, which Yelich sat on in the middle of a bed, with the words “I’d rather go to space” written across it multiple times.
Clearly, given the success of her 26-year-old sister Lorde, there are high expectations for Yelich’s music, and fans are excited to see what the new single has to offer.
Yelich’s Instagram page only has two posts; the one announcing the track and a video of her singing a clip of the piano version of the song that was posted a few weeks ago.
Lorde made headlines over the summer with her stunning performance at Glastonbury, where she joined a string of musicians who used the event to condemn the US Supreme Court ruling Deer vs Wade.
The singer performed on the Pyramid Stage on June 26: During her performance, Lorde gave a speech which she ended with “F*** the Supreme Court”.
“Welcome to sadness,” the singer said onstage. “The temperature is unbearable until you face it. wanna hear a secret girl Your bodies were designed to be controlled and objectified even before you were born.
“This horror is your birthright. But here’s another secret. You have ancient strength. wisdom of the ages. Wisdom that has driven every woman that has come before you. This wisdom is also your birthright. I ask you today to make the exercise of this wisdom your life’s work, for everything depends on it. Screw the Supreme Court.”
The musician’s speech was greeted with cheers from the crowd before beginning a performance of her 2021 track “Mood Ring.”
On June 24, the US Supreme Court ruled in favor of a Mississippi law banning abortion at 15 weeks of pregnancy while overturning important precedents set by the 1973 decision Deer vs Wade.
