Lorde covers Martha Wainwright’s “Bloody Mother Fucking Asshole” at Osheaga: Watch

on August 06, 2017, 10:55pm

Lorde performed two rain-drenched festival sets over the weekend. The first, at Lollapalooza, was cut short by the nasty weather after just three songs. The second, which went down a day later at Osheaga, made it through the storm, perhaps giving fans a look at what Chicago almost got. That included a surprising cover of Martha Wainwright’s “Bloody Mother Fucking Asshole”.

The New Zealand pop star pulled the cover out about midway through her Friday evening set at the Montreal festival. Accompanied by an acoustic guitarist and garbed in all white, Lorde gave an impassioned rendition of the provocative 2005 folk-pop song. Check out video of the performance above.

Lorde’s Osheaga set also featured a guest appearance from Tove Lo during the Melodrama track “Homemade Dynamite”. Watch footage of that below, followed by the complete setlist.
