LISTEN: Preview of Lorde's 'Everybody Wants To Rule The World'

MTV posted a preview of Lorde's Tears for Fears cover today, and they had great things to say about it!

17-year-old wunderkind Lorde brings out that inherent darkness with her version, giving the track a layer of grime and an ominous build that culminates in the Pure Heroine singer practically keening, "everybody wants to rule the world." It's a dramatic song, a cinematic song, one that evokes all the terror and determination that builds up inside "Hunger Games" protagonist Katniss Everdeen as she prepares to re-enter the deathly arena.
