However, the album is not yet close to being finished. “ We’re not VERY close…I’m so excited I need to let you know “, Lorde wrote in response to a fan. “ Start getting excited on low heat and bring it to a gentle simmer…we need stamina for this chapter. »

Lorde’s last post was in September, when she was celebrating the tenth anniversary of her debut album, Pure Heroine. “ You may think (like me most of the time) that this album has been sufficiently MYTHOLOGIZED, but a milestone is a milestone “, she wrote. Earlier in the email, she expressed gratitude for having this way to communicate with her fans.

I think part of me knew that I had hit a wall and needed to invite the compassion and understanding that I had struggled to generate on my own, and so I would have something to draw from and reflect, she wrote. I feel like it’s working. I am incredibly grateful that we have this relationship, that we can each give when the other needs it. »

In the previous newsletter, Lorde revealed that she “ lived with heartache again » and detailed his recent episodes of illness and intense sadness. “ Don’t worry about me, I still laugh every day, everything moves, even slowly”Lorde assured her readers.

Lorde’s most recent album, Solar Powerarrived in 2021. It follows his acclaimed second album, Melodrama, released four years earlier. The six years that passed between her first and second album remain the greatest period of interruption she has experienced between two releases.
