The Foo Fighters lead vocalist believes the Kiwi teen 'has an incredible future ahead of her as a writer, performer and vocalist.' Dave Grohl Sings Lorde's Praises In Latest Interview

Lorde has added another fan to her growing list of admirers, and this time it's a big name.

Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl has come forward to admit he loves the New Zealander teen's music. The veteran rocker believes that Lorde's emergence makes him feel good about the future of pop music and praised her for coming up with good, quality content that youth can listen to.

In an interview with the Rolling Stones  magazine, the former Nirvana drummer said: "When I first heard 'Royals' it was sandwiched between all of that other stripper pop. I was so f**king relieved. I thought, 'Hey, this might be another revolution.' When I met her I said, 'When I first heard your song on the radio and my kids sang along I felt like there was hope for my kids to grow up in an environment which is more than just superficial.'

"My two daughters, Violet and Harper, who are eight and five years old, started singing along. I was so happy and relieved that my two girls were singing a popular song on the radio that had some substance and depth, which I considered to be healthy for them as kids. I know that sounds kind of parent-ish."

He then also explained why he chose the "Royals" singer to showcase her talents when Nirvana got inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. "There's something about her that represented or resembled the Nirvana aesthetic," he added. "She has an incredible future ahead of her as a writer, performer and vocalist."
