Watch: Nirvana’s Krist Novoselic covers Lorde’s “Royals” (on accordion)

on March 12, 2014, 10:53am

You thought Lorde’s “Royals” jumped the shark when Bruce Springsteen covered it? Think again. Recently, founding Nirvana member Krist Novoselic tried his hand at Ella Yelich-O’Connor’s chart-topping single, which he performed on his go-to instrument of late: accordion. Watch the instrumental rendition, as performed in Takoma Park, Maryland, below (via Stereogum).

All that being said, I wouldn’t mind seeing Ella return the favor and bust out a Nirvana cover during her ongoing American tour. We know she has the chops to do so.

“We know she has the chops to do so”???? I mean what is this? Thank you major music site and it’s music writer’s for letting us know that a musician is capable of playing music. Outstanding “Chops”! I love how you linked that part too as if to add intrigue to these “chops” and what they could all be out about. Yikes. The Nick Cohn of our time!
