    After a brief postponement due to a bout with laryngitis, Lorde resumed her “Solar Power” tour at Radio City Music Hall in New York on Tuesday night. And based on her surprise cover of Rosalía’s “HENTAI,” the New Zealand pop singer’s vocals seem to be back in top form.

    Lorde performed from the perch of a rotating staircase to nowhere. With a glowing purple planet looming on the backdrop behind her, it looked like at any moment she’d take a running leap into space. Fan footage captured her with a big smile on her face; she clearly enjoys the song.

    Via StereogumLorde raved about “HENTAI” in a recent edition of her newsletter. “I’ve listened to the Rosalía album every day since it came out, fuck, it’s so good, I gagged when I heard that interpolation of Archangel, Hentai is genius, Sakura… projects like this remind me why I live for pop music — at its best, there’s nothing better,” she wrote. Check out clips of the “HENTAI” performance below.
