Lorde confirms she is working on ‘totally different’ new album

The singer says there is a new "vibe" to her writing after global success

Lorde has said that she is working on a new album which is “totally different” to her previous material.

The singer, who reached global success with her debut album ‘Pure Heroine’, has said that she has grown as an artist and writer.

“I think I’ve learned so much as a songwriter, there’s going to be so much of an improvement because of that,” she told the BBC. “I’m working on stuff quite tentatively, it’s definitely still at the beginning and yeah, it’s totally different.”


She added: “I wrote the last album about that world which was the suburb where I grew up and populated by my friends and people who were really familiar to me. Now I’m in a different place every day and I’m with new people every day and it’s a different vibe.”

Earlier this week, it was revealed that Lorde will support Arcade Fire at their gig at London’s Earls Court on Saturday (June 7).

The singer is in town headlining her own pair of shows, playing twice in London this week. She is due to headline Shepherd’s Bush Empire tonight (June 5) and the larger Brixton Academy tomorrow (June 6).
