Singer announced second album on her 20th birthday
Lorde has teased her new album again after previously announcing it on her 20th birthday earlier this month.
Today, she teased her album again, posting to Twitter, with a photo of a pair of standard issue Apple ear buds, she explained that she likes to “listen to the record on these every day”.
She added; “wanna hear it exactly how you will”. She is yet to reveal the album’s release date or title.
Lorde shared an emotional passage on Facebook on Nov 7 – discussing her coming of age, her past, and her future – she wrote; “I’m not a kid any more, and more and more I’m realizing that the weirdness of those Mylar balloons is going to be okay,” she wrote. “Writing ‘Pure Heroine’ was my way of enshrining our teenage glory, putting it up in lights forever so that part of me never dies, and this record – well, this one is about what comes next.”
She continued: “I want nothing more than to spill my guts RIGHT NOW about the whole thing – I want you to see the album cover, pore over the lyrics (the best I’ve written in my life), touch the merch, experience the live show. I can hardly stop myself from typing out the name. I just need to keep working a while longer to make it as good as it can be. You’ll have to hold on. The big day is not tomorrow, or even next month realistically, but soon. I know you understand.”
In the time since ‘Pure Heroine’, Lorde honoured David Bowie with a tribute at the 2016 BRIT Awards, recorded and released new songs for the ‘Hunger Games’ soundtrack and collaborated with Disclosure for the track ‘Magnets’.
Lorde is expected to drop her new album in Spring 2017, before a world tour and festival dates.
