LORDE Gives Fans An Update On Delayed Third Album
Last we heard from Lorde in June 2019, she promised that her third album was already "in the oven." However in a new email sent to her fans, the Australian hitmaker revealed that she only started going back to the studio in December after the death of her dog Pearl derailed the album process.
"I started going back to the studio again in December, just for something to do, and to my surprise, good things came out. Happy, playful things. I felt my melodic muscles flexing and strengthening," she said in the lengthy message. She went on to reveal that she continued working with Jack Antonoff on the album even after the world has shut down due to the global health crisis, but told fans that "it'll take a while longer" before it's finished.
She added in explanation, "I want nothing more than to feed you treats, pop perfect morsels straight into your little mouths. But as I get older I realise there's something to be said for the pleasant feeling of waiting for something of quality to become available to you. You could have something of lesser quality much faster, but as the high quality thing comes into fruition, a warm feeling grows inside you. Do you know what I mean? ...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."
