Lorde Reveals Details on New Music

Lorde updates fans on 'F---ing Good' music in the works with Jack Antonoff, Billboard reports.

Finally, new music from Lorde is on the way! The singer sent an email to her fans on Wednesday, May 19 updating them on her past few months. 

"I realised the other day it had been a minute since we chatted, and I was missing you. Do you wear your hair long or short now? Did you take your piercings out? You'll probably be pleased to know my hair is big and long again," she lightheartedly shared in the message, before admitting that she has "never felt more spiritually rich, and in touch with the voices that guide. (Yes I'm a f---ing herb. Sue me!!!)"

Additionally, she gave some updates about her life in New Zealand, and how the pandemic has affected her and her country. She revealed that new music was quickly in the works, but then slowed due to dealing with the death of her dog, Pearl.

"It was summer, a time of year which is usually so clarifying and special to me, but I was grieving hard for Pearl, carrying it everywhere with me," she shared. "I found a note in my phone from November which said: I eat a grief sandwich / I wear a grief coat / I see a grief film."

"I started going back to the studio again in December, just for something to do, and to my surprise, good things came out," she continued. "Happy, playful things. I felt my melodic muscles flexing and strengthening."

Well, that's good news for fans! She also revealed that her and Jack Antonoff had been working on music together before the pandemic, but have continued throughout via FaceTime.

Regarding the upcoming album that fans are anxiously awaiting she shares: "Waiting, the thing that felt so pointless and annoying when I was young, is now this kind of delicious activity. 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 f---ing 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."

"The work is so f---ing good, my friend," she ended. "I am truly jazzed for you to hear it."

We are just as jazzed as Lorde is for her new music, and can't wait to play it all summer long! Here's to hoping we get another single that achieves pop fame like "Royals."
