Lorde pens heartfelt letter to celebrate her birthday as a 'newborn adult' and hints at new album
Just three years ago, a New Zealand songstress ripped through foreign charts with her debut single "Royals," which condemned the materialistic trappings of fame and became an instant rebellion anthem. The rebel has remained tight-lipped on the follow-up to her debut album, Pure Heroine, but just as she became a "newborn" adult in the early hours of her 20th birthday Monday (Nov. 7), Lorde penned a letter to her fans in a Facebook post reminiscing on her 16-year-old "glossy idiot god, princess of her childhood streets" self, and hinted a forthcoming album.
While a new Lorde record is long overdue, fans wishing for any immediate releases might have to wait a little while longer. "The big day is not tomorrow, or even next month realistically, but soon. I know you understand," the "Team" songstress said. "The party is about to start. I am about to show you the new world."
