Lorde’s second album is coming so maybe just relax and stop asking her about it okay

Lorde has given a polite clap-back to fans that have been getting a little too aggressive over the wait for her second album.

Fans/stans have been getting a little antsy for a while now, but Lorde finally stepped into the fray when a fan left a comment on her Instagram, asking: “Do you think we will ever get another album or should we just give up on you as an artist?”

Never one to miss a beat, Lorde responded:

“Give up on me if you want to,” she wrote, “I’m an artist, I write a record when I have enough special stories to tell…it’s all me, every melody every lyric, not some team who just start the machine up every eighteen months like clockwork.”

She’s revealed that the follow up to 2013’s breakthrough Pure Heroine has been written, and she’s currently in the production stage (she’s previously been snapped with indie producer Jack Antonoff in the studio, and has posted a pic of old mate Harley Streten aka Flume to Instagram in the past fortnight.)
