First of all, Happy 20th Birthday Lorde! What a time to be alive. ICYMI, Lorde posted a very lengthy and emotional Facebook post in which she let go of her teenage years and entered adulthood. “Tomorrow I turn 20, and it’s all I’ve been able to think about for days.”
It’s okay, it’s not THAT bad …
But for real, while it was a big swirl of emotion for the “Royals” singer, what really made a splash for everyone was Lorde’s announcement of her next album in the works! And by the sounds of it, this next compilation of musical art is VERY close to being released.
“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.”
WE. CAN’T. WAIT.
It’s been over 3 years since Pure Heroine has been released, so you can only imagine how we’ve all been waiting for some new Lorde tracks.
“Writing Pure Heroine was my way of enshrining our teenage glory, putting it up in lights forever so that part of me never dies, and this record – well, this one is about what comes next.”
A lot can happen in these post-teenage years, so we are definitely looking forward to what she brings to the table. If you want to read the full post, check it out below. It’s undeniably an emotional reflection of the then-to-now journey Lorde has been on. We can only thank her for he selfless birthday gift to all of us.
