In a newsletter to fans, New Zealand indie pop princess Lorde has revealed that she’s working on a new album.
In the note, Lorde explains that her third studio album, which she began working on prior to quarantine, is well underway. Before social distancing, Lorde was working on the follow-up to Melodrama with her frequent collaborator Jack Antonoff, as they split time between studios in New Zealand and Los Angeles.
Due to the pandemic, Lorde did acknowledge that it will “take a while longer” to complete the album, but she’s still excited about the release. “The work is so fucking good, my friend,” Lorde says. “I am truly jazzed for you to hear it.”
