Lorde is working on a new album, a follow up to her highly successful “Pure Heroine.” Read on for further details.

The “Royals” singer spoke about releasing a new album at the recent Golden Globe awards. In an interview with MTV, Lorde teases that she had written a lot of “amazing stuff” for her new music. She added that the new album would have a totally different feel from “Pure Heroine” since she’s become a different person in the last years.

Unfortunately, we won’t be expecting the new album to hit stores anytime soon. Lorde says she’s taking her sweet time with the composition.

“I have no timeline – I really don’t care. For me I have to kind of write a project lyrically before I attack it musically,” she explained.

Lorde had been nominated for “Yellow Flicker Beat,” which she wrote for the “Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1” but lost to Common and John Legend’s “Glory” from the movie “Selma.”

Despite going home empty-handed, Lorde says she was just happy to even be nominated.

In an official statement last December, the 18-year-old says she was just “shocked and happy” by the nomination. She added that it was a “privilege to step inside Katniss’ head and speak her thoughts” and was just “blown away” that the experience earned her a Golden Globe nomination.

Lorde revealed that “Yellow Flicker Beat” was inspired by traditional spiritual song, “Sometimes I Feel Like a Motherless Child,” according to IBTimes UK. She also shared that her favorite line from the song, “fingers laced together and I made a little prison, and I’m locking up everyone who ever laid a finger on me” was the “most empowering line” she has ever written.

Do you think Lorde should have won the Golden Globes for “Yellow Flicker Beat”? Are you looking forward to her next album after “Pure Heroine”? Tell us in the comments section below.
