In the midst of her current tour route through Australia and New Zealand, Lorde has spent the last few nights working a number of covers into her sets. Earlier this week in Sydney, she covered the Whitney Houston classic “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” while draped in a rainbow flag, showing her support for the country’s recent vote in favor of marriage equality. Later in the night, she continued with a cover of “Throw Your Arms Around Me” from the Australian band Hunters & Collectors, followed a few nights later with another Australian cover, this time of Powderfinger’s “My Happiness.” Watch below.
