New Zealand singer-songwriter Lorde recently confirmed that she’s currently in the studio working on her sophomore studio album. She garnered major success with her debut album ‘Pure Heroine’ in 2013, producing the incredibly popular debut single “Royals.” Three years later, it’s certainly gratifying to hear that we’ll be getting another project from the young singer sometime soon, even though she reportedly began working on the follow-up in December of 2013.
Oddly enough, Lorde confirmed working on the upcoming album while responding to a comment on her Instagram account, when an impatient fan was pretty blunt about Lorde’s future projects, according to Billboard.
“Do you think we will ever get another album or should we just give up on you as an artist?” the user wrote in a comment.
Lorde wrote a pretty mature response, defending her right to be patient with herself, while also condemning the idea of pushing out material just to stay relevant.
“Give up on me if you want to,” Lorde wrote. “I write a record when I have enough special stories to tell, and it’s all me, every melodic every lyric, not some team who just start the machine up every 18 months like clockwork.”
With all of that being said, it seems that the songs for the album have been written, and now all she has to do is lay it down on wax.
“The record is written, we’re in the production stage now,” Lorde added. “I’ve worked like a dog for a year making this thing great for you guys.”
