Good News! Lorde has dropped an update on new music and it’s “so fucking good”

Good news Dear Reader! Lorde has dropped in with a bit of an update on how new music is coming along and… it’s sounding great

Revealing the latest on the follow-up to 2017’s absolute stormer ‘Melodrama’ through a newsletter to fans, Lorde detailed how recording had been going before ‘all of this’ and how work is continuing with producer Jack Antonoff

“I started going back to the studio again in December, just for something to do, and to my surprise, good things came out. Happy, playful things. It flowed. A thing started to take shape. And then, of course, the world shut down. We’re still working away—Jack and I FaceTimed for over an hour this morning going over everything. But it’ll take a while longer.”

Talking about her excitement at getting ‘back out there’, Lorde continued: “I want to eat summer foods in beautiful countries—ice cream and tomatoes and anchovies. I want to use my gift, and watch it grow. Who knows when it’ll be safe to do those things, but I’m craving them, and I wanted you to know.”

Addressing fans asking for new material, Lorde explained: “I understand— I want nothing more than to feed you treats, pop perfect morsels straight into your little mouths, but as I get older I realise there’s something to be said for the pleasant feeling of waiting for something of quality to become available to you. You could have something of lesser quality much faster, but as the high quality thing comes into fruition, a warm feeling grows inside you. Do you know what I mean?”

“I can tell you, this new thing, it’s got its own colours now. If you know anything about my work, you’ll know what that means”

Now here’s what’s getting us excited: “The work is so fucking good, my friend, I am truly jazzed for you to hear it”

YES LORDE YES
