Lorde may be about to debut a never-heard-before track she's been keeping to herself for years.

The Kiwi pop star revealed she has an unreleased track that didn't make it onto her album Melodrama, which she'll - hopefully - be performing live for the first time in the coming weeks.

Ahead of her North American tour, which begins in Milwaukee on Thursday, the singer shared the news on her Instagram story.

"I may or may not have dug up a song that we wrote during the Melodrama sessions that didn't make it," she wrote. "One that I really love."


Lorde has previously shared a snippet of an unreleased song on Twitter, sharing it in response to her own tweet that said "Will u love me? will u?"

She added that the clip was "Just an old melo sketch".

Lorde's North American tour will be supported by Run the Jewels, Tove Styrke and Mitski. The singer has been sharing images of her rehearsals on Instagram ahead of the tour's first show.
