Republic Records Might Have Just Leaked Lorde’s Album Release Date

An ambiguous listing for a meeting hints at something new coming in March

Big news for Lorde fans! After dropping hints on social media over the past few months, Republic Records recently added a very exciting meeting to their schedule.

Listed on their agenda is “Lorde (Confidential Title) 3/7.”


Though we’re not clear on whether this means a full album or a new single, it seems safe to assume that something new will be dropping on March 7.

In November, Lorde tweeted a photo of ear buds with the caption “listen to the record on these every day. wanna hear it exactly how you will,” hinting at a new upcoming album.


In November Lorde also talked a bit about her upcoming album in a heartfelt Facebook post that the New Zealand artist wrote about turning 20.

“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.”
