Lorde Just Revealed She’s Working On New Music After Taking A Two-Year Hiatus

After finishing up her “Melodrama” tour in 2018, Lorde went quiet.

It wasn’t until 2019 that she made an announcement, saying her third album would be delayed. But then, the 23-year-old disappeared again...until now.

Lorde is back, and apparently, working on a new album.

On Tuesday night, the “Royals” singer sent a lengthy email to her fans updating them on her life.

“Well hello there. I realised the other day it had been a minute since we chatted, and I was missing you,” she wrote.

“You’ll probably be pleased to know my hair is big and long again. I think after Melodrama came out I said I wouldn’t put out another record until my hair was long — both because hair takes time to grow, and I knew I needed time, and because I knew the next record would require the longest and wildest hair yet,” she continued.

In the email, Lorde discussed her quarantine experience in New Zealand saying, “New Zealand is creeping back to normal. Shops and restaurants are open again."

“I feel so grateful for such calm, sensible leadership by our government, now more than ever. I know you may not be afforded that where you live, and I hope you are taking it one day at a time and trying not to feel too destroyed by the news,” Lorde added.

The “Green Light” singer went on to address her grief after losing her precious dog, Pearl last year.

“If you know how it feels to lose someone close, I’m sure it makes sense to you. Everything about you becomes a grief thing!” she explained.

To help deal with her grief, Lorde started going back to the studio in December, and “good things came out.”

Since then, she and Jack Antonoff have been working together on her new album. And even though things are shut down, the pair have continued to create. But sadly, the album won’t be released for a little longer.

"Waiting, the thing that felt so pointless and annoying when I was young, is now this kind of delicious activity," she wrote.

“In my opinion, the greatest treat I can give you is work that will last ten, twenty, thirty years. And that kind of work takes time. So if you can, I’d like for you to try tuning in to the time spent waiting for something of the highest quality to arrive. Enjoy the sensation as it builds. When the moment comes, our wave will crest super fucking high. 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,” Lorde told her fans.
