After two years, Lorde fans now have a tiny glimpse on what to expect from the two-time, Grammy-Award-winning singer's next album. As told by Kpopstarz, the album will show her maturity as a person and singer.
In a recent BBC interview, the "Royals" singer says that she is confident that the next album, believed to be released next year, will be better than "Pure Heroine."
"I think I've learnt so much as a songwriter, there's going to be so much of an improvement because of that," she said.
Lorde also notes her experiences as an artist before "Pure Heroine" and how these has influenced the theme of her album.
"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," she shared. "Now I'm in a different place every day and I'm with new people every day and it's a different vibe," she adds.
In terms of overall sound, Lorde shares that nothing is set in stone yet. "We haven't got some planned out 'this is what it's going to sound like' ... I think we're just going to start writing and when it starts to feel right, we'll know that it's right. It's pretty simple really."
Bustle's Alexis Rhiannon supposes though that Lorde's "album-creation" process is a short one. Her production partner, Joel Little, reveals in an interview via Hitquarters, that most of her demos has ended up in the album's final edition.
In her relatively short time as a singer, Lorde has gained a number of self-confessed fans, from Britney Spears to Arcade Fire, BBC reports. A number of artists have also expressed their interest in collaborating with her.
In an interview with Newsbeat as told by BBC, Lorde said, "I do get a lot of insanely good people asking if we want to do something which is amazing and so much fun, I really enjoy collaborating." In fact, English electro duo, Guy and Howard Lawrence, has recently revealed their tracklist, which features Lorde among many other famous singers like The Weeknd, Sam Smith and Miguel, according to Diffuser.
It's safe to say, however, that the singer has experienced the pros and cons of fame in equal parts. Being surrounded by a group of feminist artists, she has not kept mum about the treatment of women in music. "I have an amazing team and people tend to be really straight up to me," she explained, per BBC.
"I'm not going to accept being talked down to or patronised or anything which I know a lot of women do get," she added.
