Here’s something to pull you out of your quarantine blues: Lorde has confirmed new music is on the way.
In an email sent to her fans on Wednesday (May 19), the singer updated fans on what she’s been up to the past months. It includes the return of her big, long hair, some details on the pandemic situation in her home country, New Zealand, and her working with Jack Antonoff for her latest album, which had been delayed due to her dog Pearl’s death.
“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,” she said in the email. “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.”
“I know now how excited I am to get back out there,” she added. “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.”
The upcoming album is a follow-up to 2017’s ‘Melodrama’ (Read more: Lorde: More Real than Royal). Soon after fans got the email, Lorde made it to the top trending topics on Twitter as fans celebrated her upcoming return.
