Lorde sent out an update to her fans informing them about the status of her new music, as well as giving an update on how she’s been. The singer’s upcoming album was previously delayed due to the death of her dog, Pearl.
“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,” Lorde wrote. “I felt my melodic muscles flexing and strengthening. Jack [Antonoff] came over to work in the studio in Auckland, and I went to LA. It flowed. A thing started to take shape. And then, of course, the world shut down.”
Despite the quarantine, Lorde and producer Antonoff are still working remotely on her followup to 2017’s Melodrama, though she doesn’t yet have a release date set.. Lorde said she sympathizes with fans’ impatience; “I understand— I want nothing more than to feed you treats, pop perfect morsels straight into your little mouths,” she wrote. “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.”
