Lorde recently shared an update on upcoming new music, saying that she had been “spending long days in a dark room” working on it.
The comments came after the New Zealand artist said back in June that she was “getting nearer” to writing nothing but “bangers” again. Her third and most recent album, last year’s ‘Solar Power’, saw Lorde move away from the euphoric sounds of ‘Melodrama’ (2017) in favour of a more introspective and delicate musical style.
“It’s so interesting to me how writing a big, bright pop song has been the thing that’s defined my life,” she explained. “This thing I started trying to do when I was 14-years-old because I would turn on the radio and love that feeling, what it did to me. It became like an addiction, I just wanted to keep trying to construct the perfect thing that would hit you in the heart emotionally, over three-and-a-half minutes.”
NME gave Lorde’s ‘Solar Power’ five stars in a review upon its release last year, calling it “a dazzling hat-trick from a master of her craft.”
“This is an album that grows in quiet stature with every listen, new nuggets of wisdom making their way to the surface, peeking through its beautiful instrumentation that weaves a stunning, leafy tapestry,” the review said.
