Lorde Confirms Follow-Up to ‘Pure Heroine’ Album Coming Soon
Lorde recently confirmed that work on her follow-up album to Pure Heroine has now entered the production stage. She made the revelation while responding to an impatient fan on Instagram.
Yesterday, the New Zealand-based singer posted an amusing photo of her staring at a frog on the street.

An Instagram user who goes by the name Gabatron9 commented on the photo and asked the "Royals" singer if she will still release a second album.
"Do you think we will ever get another album or should we just give up on you as an artist?" the user asked.
Lorde responded to the disrespectful fan and said that she will release a new album when she's ready. She also revealed that the songs for the upcoming album were already written and have now entered the production stage.
"Give up on me if you want to," she wrote. "I write a record when I have enough special stories to tell, and it's all me, every melodic every lyric, not some team who just start the machine up every 18 months like clockwork."
"The record is written, we're in the production stage now," Lorde added. "I've worked like a dog for a year making this thing great for you guys."
As noted by Billboard, Lorde started working on her second studio album as early as December 2013, just a few months after Pure Heroine came out. The progress on the project may have slowed down last year when Lorde parted ways with Scott Maclachlan, her former manager.
For her upcoming album, Lorde revealed in July that she spent three days in the wilderness to write new material. Although she didn't go into detail regarding the songs that she wrote, she noted that she made "exciting breakthroughs" in making her new album.
