Lorde is about to release new music and people are freaking out
We could be expecting a new single from Lorde as early as next month, if the latest evidence to surface on the internet is to be believed.
The rumour mill cranked up yesterday when her US label Republic Records listed their weekly agenda on their website. It featured songs they want pushed out to radio in the coming weeks. Some usual suspects were there, including Ariana Grande and newcomer Julia Michaels, but below them both … was Lorde.

While we may not see the release of a full album on March 7, it seems pretty likely that we could be hearing its first single much sooner than that. It’ll be the first piece of new music from the New Zealand-born artist since 2013’s breakthrough Pure Heroine.
Last August she revealed her new album had been written and she was in the production stage of recording. As to who she was working with, Lorde had previously been snapped with indie producer Jack Antonoff in the studio, and posted a pic of Flume to Instagram as well.
Better mark March 7 in your diary.
