Ahead of her performance later this month on Saturday Night Live, Lorde on Monday teased a brief preview of her new single with an unexpected spot on New Zealand television.

The clip showed the singer eating fast food in the back of a vehicle while music plays. The ad fades to black with the date March 2 for New York and March 3 for Lorde's native New Zealand, which is 16 hours ahead of the East Coast.

In response to the promo, Lorde tweeted, simply asking fans, "u hungry?" Considering she is eating in the aforementioned clip, her choice of words is likely not a coincidence. She also shared a link to a website, with a site title of "M*******a," perhaps an indication of the song title.

As we previously mentioned, Lorde has been readying a new album, the followup to her 2013 debut Heroine. The new record is one of Variance's 50 Album to Watch for in 2017.

Lorde will perform on SNL on March 11 and her new single teaser can be seen here.
