Update: Lorde just clarified her tease a bit, posting the following on Facebook: “you’ll wanna come back here at 8am nz / 2pm nyc for a couple of days.. www.imwaitingforit.com.”
It’s been three and a half years since Lorde released her critically acclaimed album Pure Heroine, and several months since she revealed that her new record is written, but it looks like we’re finally getting some new Lorde music soon.
This morning, the young New Zealand artist tweeted “u hungry?” and then followed up with a mysterious link: imwaitingforit.com. The site consists solely of a short clip showing Lorde snacking on some fries and drinking a soda in the backseat of a car (perhaps post-recording session?), and then “3.2.17 NYC” flashes across the screen, followed by “3.3.17 NZ.” This seems to be a pretty clear signal that we’re getting new Lorde music, perhaps as soon as this Thursday. It’s about time—after three years, we finally got “Royals” out of our heads. Oh, wait. No, we didn’t. “And we’ll never be royyyyyals … ”
Lorde is scheduled to make her solo performance debut on SNL on March 11, so presumably we’ll be able to hear her new stuff live soon. In the meantime, check out the teaser video, titled “M*******A,” right here, and read our 2013 Best of What’s Next writeup on Lorde here. Last but not least, a tip of the cap to Slate, who compiled a whole slew of words that could conceivably be the mysterious “M*******A”—find that list below.
