Lorde has confirmed that she’s working on her third studio album. The New Zealand pop star revealed that her next record is “in the oven”, posting on Instagram Stories for the two-year anniversary of her 2017 full-length Melodrama.
In the note, she thanked fans for how they “took that record and made it your own”. She also discussed her growth since the release of Melodrama. “I was such a baby making that work, lots of emotions and learning so much all the time,” she wrote. “Feels like I’ve grown a lot since then, I’ve been to Antarctica, I have a dog now and a cat and I can bake bread and cook dinner and keep plants alive etc.”
Lorde also talked about its release date. “The day it came out I did a jigsaw puzzle all day in my hotel room in NY. I felt so emptied, I didn’t really know yet that you make a record and get filled up, and then releasing it empties you.. and slowly fills you up again.”
Closing the note, she wrote: “Third one in the oven.”
