In celebration of Lorde turning 20 and therefore no longer being a teenager, she penned a moving status update explaining where she had been for the past year or so. In this long note, she hinted at a new album that fans have been eagerly awaiting for ever since the heavily popular Pure Heroine.
‘Writing Pure Heroine was my way of enshrining our teenage glory, putting it up in lights forever so that part of me never dies, and this record – well, this one is about what comes next.’
Naturally, the letter got fans very excited and many were moved by the sentiment that Ella (aka Lorde) was sharing in this long Facebook note. It’s almost as if she spent her whole birthday writing it, but it’s wonderful that she got what she was feeling out there into the world, leaving fans feeling very excited about her upcoming album.
In the world that we live in, a year feels like forever, especially due to the constant social media updates that can let us get updates literally to the second of what’s happening. It’s nice to know that Lorde has done what she needs to do, which was to take a step back and surround herself with love from family friends, find her feet and challenge herself in her music.
Her life update was also followed by postings of her birthday celebrations, which was done in style along with ‘nyc family’.
She ended the letter on a heartfelt note.
What i’m trying to say is: this is a special birthday. The party is about to start. I am about to show you the new world.
I love you forever.
We look forward to hearing the new music, that’s for sure! You can read the full note here.
