Listing #: 764022675
The Play It Strange Trust is auctioning a lyric sheet of “Royals” – penned and signed by Lorde along with co-writer Joel Little.

Play It Strange is a charitable trust that runs programmes for New Zealand youth in songwriting, performance and recording. For more info go to http://www.playitstrange.org.nz

Lorde otherwise known as Ella Yelich-O’Connor, and Joel Little have previous connections to the Play It Strange Trust and team.

Ella Yelich-O'Connor performed 'Six Months In A Leaky Boat' with Eddie Rayner's ENZSO at the Play It Strange concert in the Auckland Domain as part of Fonterra's 10th Anniversary in October 2011. A short while later she sang a set with Zac Fraser-Baxter (both Takapuna Grammar students) at a Play It Strange fundraiser at Devonport's Vic Theatre in November 2011.

Joel Little performed a Goodnight Nurse song with Descend - a trio of twelve year olds from Parnell District School at Playing It Strange in Parnell street party in Dec 2008.

Joel and Ella received the very prestigious APRA Silver Scroll Award in 2013 for the song that is now heard in all corners of the earth. On the tail of that win, a request was put through Joel for a lyric sheet – Lorde kindly obliged and upon Joel’s return from the Grammy celebrations Play It Strange CEO, Mike Chunn and their general manager Debbie Little (Joel’s cousin) took a trip to Golden Age Studio in Auckland and collected this priceless lyric sheet signed by the award-winning duo.

The time has come to take the sheet from its special hiding place and have it framed, with all of the care and quality it deserves, to auction off on Trade Me for the benefit of Play It Strange in running future programmes for our young lyricists and songwriters.

About the framing: lyric sheet is float mounted onto a grey archival mattboard showing 5cm top and sides and 6cm at the bottom. It is then framed in soft, antique pewter molding with slat spacers and U.V inhibiting museum grade glass to best effect and highest conservation standards.
