Lorde Says Next Album Will Feel Different, Have New Influences
Lorde’s successful Pure Heroine may have come out just less than a year ago, but she’s already writing new material for a follow up.
According to an interview with Newsbeat, the New Zealand singer/songwriter calls the next release “better” – one influenced by the life she has since gained from success.
She explained: "I think I've learnt so much as a songwriter, there's going to be so much of an improvement because of that. I'm working on stuff quite tentatively, it's definitely still at the beginning and yeah, it's totally different. I wrote the last album about that world which was the suburb where I grew up and populated by my friends and people who were really familiar to me. Now I'm in a different place every day and I'm with new people every day and it's a different vibe."
There’s no word when she’ll start recording or when this next release will drop.
Along with putting together new material for her own album, Lorde mentions she’s been requested as a songwriter for other artists, so collaborations may be in store.
Pure Heroine came out in September 2013, with an extended version put out toward the end of last year. The release peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 and at No. 1 on the New Zealand Albums chart. Five singles were released, including two having significant success in the U.S.: “Royals,” “Tennis Court,” “Team,” “No Better,” and “Glory and Gore.”
