Lorde fans: Prepare yourself for a swift infusion of joy. The 18-year-old wunderkind is finally working on a new record -- but don't expect a tired old retread of 2013's Pure Heroine.
Even though Lorde lost out to Common and John Legend's "Glory" at last night's Golden Globes for Best Original Song, the "Yellow Flicker Beat" singer isn't letting the loss get her down. She's powering forward with new tunes -- and, according to her, they won't disappoint.
"For me I have to kind of write a project lyrically before I attack it musically," Lorde told MTV's Josh Horowitz on the red carpet Sunday night. "So I've written a lot of amazing stuff and I'm just tentatively starting to make it music."
Did you hear that, guys? She's written a lot of "amazing stuff"! And she's "tentatively" making music!
Yup, Ella isn't in any rush to get new songs out there -- as she told Horowitz, "I have no timeline. I really don't care."
Although we're eager to hear Lorde's new goods, we're happy she's taking the time to germinate something new. As she said, "You have to be a different person and write a different record."
Given the bevy of experiences the 18-year-old has had over the past few years -- soundtracking a "Hunger Games" flick, working with Kanye, playing with Nirvana, etc -- we imagine the next iteration of Lorde will rule just as much as the first.
With the the good news comes the sad, however. According to Ella, she will likely not be lending her curation talents to the next "Hunger Games" soundtrack. STILL, she did say she's BFFs with Jennifer Lawrence now, so maybe she, Taylor and J-Law can hang, thus effectively taking over the world. Either way, 2015 will continue to be the year of the Lorde.
