The Royals singer tweeted a map to three spots around the city where fans could find installations: a green-lit smoking car in Ponsonby, Herne Bay beach lit up in green, and a projection of a snippet of her upcoming song on a wall in Queen Street.

Thousands of fans turned out, some wading through knee deep water from one beach to the next, to reach the installation, after Lorde tweeted the wrong location and confused fans.

The new music is expected to be released on Friday.

It has also been announced that the singer will appear on America's Saturday Night Live on March 11 with Scarlett Johansson.

Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom split days after attending Oscars party together

Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom have split.

The 32-year-old pop star enjoyed a 12-month romance with the Pirates of the Caribbean actor after they hit it off at last year's Golden Globe Awards - but the celebrity duo have now decided to go their separate ways.

In a statement to Us Weekly, a representative said: "Before rumours or falsifications get out of hand we can confirm that Orlando and Katy are taking respectful, loving space at this time."

Rumours about their relationship status have been circling after Katy and Orlando, 40, did not walk the red carpet together at the Oscars on Monday.

But the pair were happy to be seen together at the Vanity Fair Oscars after-party, suggesting they remain on good terms despite their split.

Confirmation of their relationship ending comes shortly after Miranda Kerr - Orlando's ex-wife and the mother of his six-year-old son Flynn - spoke in glowing terms about the Roarhitmaker.

Miranda, 33, revealed that Katy had struck up a very good relationship with her son, and said that her ex-husband remains like a "brother" to her.

She explained: "They're great. They get along really well.

"We're a modern family. Orlando and I are literally like family, he's like a brother to me. It's very weird, but we really care for each other and we have a great relationship, so I feel very lucky."
