Hear Lorde Cover Kings Of Leon -- At Age 12

Surprise: She's really good.

We knew Lorde was first discovered at a talent show at age 12, but now we can get a taste of what exactly her pipes sounded like all those years ago. A recording of Ella singing Kings of Leon's track, “Use Somebody,” for a local radio station has hit the Web, and it's, in a word, lovely.

Take a listen below -- and trying not to get ragingly jealous. And if you're itching for more vintage Lorde, you can also take a listen to her high school back, They Were The Masked, rock out here.
