NZ singer-songwriter Lorde working on third album
Lorde has confirmed she has been working on her next album.
The New Zealand singer-songwriter delayed the release of her third record last October due to the death of her beloved dog, Pearl, but this week she revealed to fans that new music is ahead.
She said in a newsletter: "I started going back to the studio in December just for something to do, and to my surprise, good things came out.
"Happy, playful things. I felt my melodic muscles flexing and strengthening."
Despite the current coronavirus pandemic, the 'Royals' hitmaker has still been working remotely with Jack Antonoff on her highly anticipated follow-up to 2017's Melodrama.
However, she warned the new material "will take a little longer" to come out into the world as she wants to create an album which will stand the test of time.
"In my opinion, the greatest treat I can give you is work that will last ten, twenty, thirty years. And that kind of work takes time.
"So if you can, I'd like for you to try tuning in to the time spent waiting for something of the highest quality to arrive.
"Enjoy the sensation as it builds. When the moment comes, our wave will crest super f**king high."
The 23-year-old music star revealed that she is excited to be back on the road after needing time away from touring due to "brutal stage fright and having no fixed home".
Lorde explained: "I want to be playing festivals again - hearing my intro music, watching the band walk onstage. I want to devastate.
"I want to see a huge line of you outside my hotel. I want to hug you all, and hold your hands. I want to do interviews, talk about the record over and over until I know it inside out.
"I want to do photoshoots, make videos. I want to eat summer foods in beautiful countries - ice cream and tomatoes and anchovies."
