The drought of Lorde is coming to an end. Soon we will be awash with Lorde’s mournful tones and it’s just confirming our theory that 2017 is bound to be precisely a billion times better than 2016 was.
We have already had confirmation that new music from Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber will be winging its way to us sometime this year (as soon as this Friday in Ed’s case) and this latest indication that Lorde is set to drop an album is sending us into overdrive.
It’s been over three years since Lorde released her debut album ‘Pure Heroine’ and tbh since then, apart from a few collabs like the stellar ‘Magnets’, it’s been mostly radio silence from the talented New Zealander.
And that’s the way she seem to like it tbh.
In true Lorde fashion she has been in isolation while writing her latest album. Last year she decided to throw us a bone, tweeting out this cryptic post about making breakthroughs with the album. Sounds like she was writing in a forest… we’re not really that surprised to be honest. Perhaps she’s penned a reply to Taylor Swift’s ‘Out of the Woods’ called ‘Into the Woods’?
We can dream.
took a helicopter out into the wilderness spent 3 days alone writing and made some of the most exciting breakthroughs on this record so far

Fast forward half a year later we’re sure that Lorde has had enough time to perfect her woodland anthems collection and wrap it with a nice bow just for us.
Now we’re 100% sure.
Yesterday Coachella confirmed their 2017 line-up and we were ecstatic to see Lorde one of the headliners. And then today The Governor’s Ball 2017 published their schedule and Lorde is also featured. When artists hit the festival circuit that can only mean one thing… they’ve got an album to promote.
YAAAAAS! We think that Lorde will probably be dropping her latest masterpiece just before or even during Coachella, which is fine by us.
