Lorde teaches David Byrne her Holy Grail trick to beat any kind of stage fright before big events.
The singer shared her little trick while talking to David Byrne in a candid interview for Rolling Stone’s Musicians on Musicians.
She started off by admitting that she tapes “little notes to the stage for herself” and still has not overcome her struggle.
Lorde was also quoted saying, “I don’t have a good answer for that. It’s a real problem that I’m trying to get on top of. I try to write something down.”
“I tape little notes to the stage for myself, so I would go over and be able to read something that me from the past is trying to tell me from the future. But it’s a real struggle.”
Lorde also went on to explain the one way she’s able to ‘snap’ into stage mode and added, “I don’t have much of a ritual, that kind of a thing. I keep myself busy. I make some ginger tea.”
“I peel the ginger, slice it, put it into a thermos, put boiling water in with some lemon or whatever else, and that’ll keep me busy for a good 15, 20 minutes. Keep my mind a little bit away from what I’m about to do.”
