It seems like just yesterday that a sixteen-year-old singer by the name of Lorde emerged from nowhere and took the world by storm. Today, she leaves her teenage years behind and in commemoration of her 20th birthday she wrote a heartfelt Facebook post, pouring her heart out and also cryptically signaling the arrival of her sophomore album. Check out some choice excerpts from her post below, and get excited for what’s next from Lorde.
“I turned inwards to my friends, my family, towards this moment, so I could learn more about who I was, and so I could let this new project show itself to me.
And oh my god, it was a colossal year! One for the ages. I maxed out every single emotion I have in the best possible way, the colours still aching behind my eyes like this weird blissful hangover.”
“I want nothing more than to spill my guts RIGHT NOW about the whole thing – I want you to see the album cover, pore over the lyrics (the best I’ve written in my life), touch the merch, experience the live show. I can hardly stop myself from typing out the name. I just need to keep working a while longer to make it as good as it can be. You’ll have to hold on. The big day is not tomorrow, or even next month realistically, but soon. I know you understand.”
