Lorde Announces New Album On The Way

November 7, 2016

As the clock struck midnight on November 7th, Lorde turned 20 and announced that her sophomore LP is well on it's way. 

In a reflective Facebook note, the singer/songwriter reveals what she's been up to this past year or so. She has moved to New York, been laying low, and experienced life with new friends and loved ones as every 19 year old should. She has definitely grown since her last album, calling her16 year old self, "That glossy idiot god, princess of her childhood streets, handmade and ugly and sure of herself." She described her debut, Pure Heroine, as "my way of enshrining our teenage glory, putting it up in lights forever so that part of me never dies." This next album is what comes next. 

At the end of the post, Lorde mentions she has album art, the title of her album, even merch and a live show that she has in mind already! She's waiting to reveal anything because she wants to make it "as good as it can be." Will it be as long as her last album? Will it be a double LP? Maybe a concept album? We have no clue, but with an artist being so open with her fans and going through huge life changes, this looks to be like an epic release.
