I saw this tweet today by Joel Little, Lorde’s co-writer and producer, and now I’m extremely excited.
I’m at the airport… don’t want to give too much away but let’s just say I’m flying to Shmew Shmealand to make some shmusic with Shmorde

I don’t want to get too ahead of myself, but I think this means that Lorde is working on her second studio album; I can’t wait. Pure Heroine has become one of my most listened to and favorite albums because the beats and production is so different, so I’m really in need of her follow up album. I read an interview where Lorde confirmed she has started work on her second album, but it is a departure from Pure Heroine in that it’s very different.
If she’s going to continue to work with Joel Little, as it seems evident by the tweet above, then her next album is going to be stellar. I own three albums (Pure Heroine, Lorde’s Love Club – EP, and Evergreen by Broods) Little co-wrote and produced and his production is unique and mind blowing (I’ve been trying to find more music he has produced, but so far I can only get my hands on Lorde and Broods). He creates incredible beats and his minimalistic approach paradoxically creates a fully and whole sound. As a musician, it would be an honor to just be able to observe how he works in the studio, let alone begin able to write/record/produce a song with him.
In the meantime, I’m going to spend time dancing around to Lorde’s music and pray we get some news on her new album as soon as possible. If you haven’t listened to Pure Heroine, I enthusiastically encourage you to, it is awesome. If you’re a Lorde fan such as myself, I would also suggest you take a listen to Broods’ album Evergreen. If you’re like me and you’ve been listening to both albums on repeat, sit tight because I have a feeling we’re getting a new album from Lorde very soon. Fingers crossed!
