Teenage singer songwriter Lorde will follow up her double win at the Grammy Awards by joining forces with acclaimed electronic act Disclosure for a performance at the UK's BRIT Awards.

The New Zealand newcomer shone at the Grammys after taking home Best Pop Solo Performance and Song of the Year for Royals, which she also sang live at the Los Angeles prizegiving.

BRIT Awards organisers dropped a big hint about a possible collaboration between Lorde and Disclosure by sharing a black and white promotional photo of the 17 year old featuring the British duo's signature face artwork on top.

The accompanying caption on the official BRIT Awards Twitter.com blog simply states: ''#BRITs2014 @disclosure @lordemusic''.

Lorde later retweeted the picture, adding "and on to the next (Brit Awards 2014)".

Both musicians are among the nominees for the London ceremony.

Disclosure are in the running for Best British Group and British Breakthrough Act and Album of the Year for Settle, while Lorde is up for Best International Female Solo Artist along with Lady Gaga, Pink and Katy Perry.

Pharrell Williams, Bruno Mars, Rudimental, Bastille, Arctic Monkeys and Katy Perry will also be part of the line up at the O2 Arena bash on 19 Februay 19 UK time.

Disclosure are no strangers to big collaborations - R&B superstar Mary J Blige joined them onstage during a gig in New York earlier this month to perform a new version of their hit song F For You.
