New Zealand singer-songwriter Lorde clearly has a penchant for performing covers. Earlier this month, the “Yellow Flickr Beat” hitmaker made headlines around the world for her sultry cover of Bruce Springsteen’s “I’m on Fire.” And as reported by Stereogum, the Kiwi songstress was back in again during the Australian leg of her current Melodrama World Tour.

Lorde paid homage to some Australian musical heroes and well as one dearly departed American icon. During her Nov. 21 show at the Sydney Opera House, she sang parts of Melbourne-hailing art funk outfit Hunters & Gatherers 1984 single “Throw Your Arms Around Me” and Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance With Somebody.” Days later, Lorde sang a portion of “My Happiness,” a 2000 hit by alt-rock band Powderfinger in the group’s hometown of Brisbane.  Check out clips from these shows below.

Given her recent given her recent interest in playing localized covers, it’ll be interesting to see which songs Lorde performs when she brings her Melodrama Tour to North America in early 2018.
