Its been a couple of quiet years for the New Zealander who landed a US number one hitting in 2013 when she was just 16 with Royals. Lorde( real name Ella Yelich-OConnor) won a stack of awards, including 2 Grammys and became part of Taylor Swifts squad, but has released no new music since 2014.
Now shes 20 and is just complete off her sophomore album. The party is about to start. I am about to show you the new world, wrote Lorde on Facebook about the new album, explaining that was all about her growing up and learning how to be an adult.
Jack Antonoff of Bleachers fame is helping create it. This month Antonoff and Lorde sung a encompas of Robyns Hang with Me for a Christmas fundraiser for the LGBT charity The Ally Coalition, in New York, a reminder of Lordes strong, ethereal pipes.
The new album is expected springtime 2017.
