Lorde announces new photo book ‘Going South’

Proceeds are set to go towards a scholarship fund

In an email to fans on November 24th, Lorde announced the forthcoming release of a photo book called GOING SOUTH.
 


The 100-page book features a whole slew of images from her 2019 trip to Antarctica, and the first 500 copies of the book will come accompanied by a postcard signed by Lorde herself.

Lorde also revealed that she was so inspired by the journey that it inspired her next album, which she said she would “start showing you soon.”
 


“In early 2019 I took a trip to Antarctica, funded and facilitated by the lovely folks at Antarctica New Zealand,” Lorde wrote. “The continent has fascinated me since I was old enough to red. It started to interest me again in recent years as my environmental awareness went up and up, and questions about how to change my personal and professional footprints on this Earth occupied much of my time.”

Lorde then explained that her friend and photographer Harriet Were joined her on the trip, documenting it all on old-school film.
 


The “Green Light” artist revealed that the trip showed her the “beginnings of the new world which I continue to build, and am very excited to start showing you soon,” with the book serving as the “perfect precursor” to the album.

All net proceeds from the sales are set to go towards a scholarship fund for an Antarctica New Zealand postgraduate scholar to study the science of climate change.
