One of my favorite new artists of the past few year is Lorde and now…
…she’s decided to give us an album update!
Lorde made a long post on Tumblr that said she’s back in the studio now and she’s starting to work on the follow-up to her debut album!
Apparently she’s also been highly influenced by the 2010 song “Dancing On My Own” by the artist Robyn!
When talking about the ‘perfect song’, Lorde said: “The other day I was in the studio with some new friends, and I asked them which one song they would send into space, to live on forever, if they had to. I thought about it for a while, thought about Talking Heads and Fleetwood Mac and Nina Simone, but the song that came out of my mouth was ‘Dancing on My Own’ by Robyn. This song, to me, is perfect.
Take a listen to “Dancing On My Own” for some album inspiration:
My personal favorite Robyn song is “With Every Heartbeat” just so you know 😀
Lorde said in her Tumblr post: “First records are like meeting someone and feeling that need to do everything, just in case for whatever reason, you run out of time, or they stop feeling the same way as you. I feel much calmer, more comfortable in my love of doing this, and its apparent love of me, this time around. So there’s that.”
I like how she thinks! HAHA How refreshing! You know, Lorde is only 18 years old and she was only 16 when she had a #1 song! That song of course being “Royals” which I just listened to yesterday and jammed along to it!
I personally think Lorde’s debut album was phenomenal and for your information I was just listening to it last night 🙂 Her songs were so intriguing and groovy if I may say! I should know!! I was grooving to all her sweet beats when she played at the Grand Ole Opry last year! I was bobbing my head and moving my hips HAHA The music was wonderful!
My personal favorites are “Tennis Court”, “Team”, “Glory and Gore”, “Bravado”, and “Biting Down”.
Lorde has a lot of work to do to create a strong second album, but I trust that she is up for the challenge 😀
Congrats Lorde on getting back in the studio & best of luck in 2015!
