As we celebrate our nation’s independence with family, friends, delicious food, and feel-good tunes, Carson felt compelled to share a new song that’s definitely making it onto his holiday weekend playlist.
Right now, he’s got Lorde’s “Royals” on repeat.
“I heard it once and I started listening to it again. I started looking into her and asking around [with] my friends, ‘Hey, who’s this girl?’”
Turns out one of his buddies, Jason Flom, signed the 16-year-old New Zealand native to Lava Records.
Flom told Carson, “This young girl, this 16-year-old, could be one of the more important artists I’ve ever signed and we’re taking our time with her.”
Lorde is just beginning to break into the American market and is preparing to release a record in September.
“Cool video, great production,” Carson added. “It’s got that kind of Florence [Welch]-vibe to it. A little bit of maybe Adele. Obviously the lyrics are sort of hip-hoppy fun.”
