Lorde Begins Teasing ‘L4’

It's happening...

Lorde has begun teasing her fourth album.

The New Zealand star rocketed to global fame with her single ‘Royals’, before debut album ‘Pure Heroine’ underlined the depths of her talent. 2017 follow-up ‘Melodrama’ was marked by maturity, before the cosmically aligned ‘Solar Power’ saw Lorde embracing the light.

Using her newsletter to communicate with fans, the New Zealand singer has intimated she is in the creative zone. Overnight, a post on Instagram contained an oblique reference to her next step – ‘L4’ is on its way.

Writing on the social media platform, Lorde commented: use the existing tools wherever possible” before adding: “If the tools do not exist you are spiritually obliged to create them…”

CLASH spoke to Lorde in 2014 for an early, intimate cover interview. She told us:

The thing is, I’m a goon. Nobody wants to watch me talking and eating biscuits! I’m trying to make art! (Laughs) Initially I didn’t have any photos out there, and I could heavily control what I wanted people to see. I’ve done something similar in my music: it’s all to making the listener feel a certain way.
