Lorde Shares A Snap From The Studio — Could New Music Be On The Way?

She's burning the candle at both ends -- literally.

What did Lorde do over the long weekend? Well, in addition to pumping her upcoming hometown tour dates, she’s also, apparently, been in the studio.

“i always remind myself to bring a candle for the studio and finally i did today and ohhhhhhh,” Lorde wrote on Instagram, sharing a photo of the candle in question, soundboard glinting in the background.

She declined to give any more details on new music — aside from her choice of relaxation technique — but that alone had her fans digitally bouncing with excitement. “In the studio??? Making my dreams come true,” one wrote, while another wrote, simply, “OMG, I can’t wait.”

Lorde is currently working on curating the soundtrack for “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1″ — along with a new track for the movie — but she’s also, apparently, working on the followup to 2013’s 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,” the 17-year-old previously told the BBC. “I’m working on stuff quite tentatively, it’s definitely still at the beginning and yeah, it’s totally different … Now I’m in a different place every day and I’m with new people every day and it’s a different vibe.”

We’re guessing that candle is adding to that vibe. We’ll be waiting for those new tunes, Ella, with breath that is bated.
