Lorde’s coming back with new material, and she’s “truly jazzed for you to hear it.”
The New Zealand artist sent a detailed newsletter to fans earlier this week with an update on her latest work.
“In my opinion, the greatest treat I can give you is work that will last ten, twenty, thirty years,” penned Lorde.
The singer songwriter went on to say that the specific kind of work she wants to deliver “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 waves will crest super fucking high.”
Jack Antonoff, who produced Lorde’s past album Melodrama, is currently producing the artist’s new material, even miles apart. “And then, of course, the world shut down. We’re still working away — Jack and I FaceTimed for over an hour this morning going over everything. But it’ll take a while longer.”
The lengthy newsletter also touched on New Zealand’s coronavirus status, saying it’s “creeping back to normal.”
Lorde says she looks forward to picking things back up where they left off. “I want to be playing festivals again — hearing my intro music, watching the band walk onstage. … Who knows when it’ll be safe to do those things, but I’m craving them, and I wanted you to know.”
Leaving fans in anticipation, the artist closed off her update by saying, “the work is so fucking good, my friend.”
