Just as deep as she needs to be, Lorde, not only released a new video for “Team” but she left us with something to think about. As usual.

In her own words, as posted on Facebook:
[quote]This video was borne from a dream I had a few months ago about teenagers in their own world, a world with hierarchies and initiations, where the boy who was second in command had acne on his face, and so did the girl who was Queen. I dreamt about this world being so different to anything anyone had ever seen, a dark world full of tropical plants and ruins and sweat. And of this world, I dreamt about tests that didn’t need to be passed in order to be allowed in: sometimes the person who loses is stronger. Enjoy. – Lorde [/quote]
