Fans have been starved for new music from Lorde since the release of universally acclaimed second studio album Melodrama, and now she’s revealed that the highly anticipated follow-up has a title.
In a new interview with New Zealand’s Newshub, Lorde said that the title came to her after she was leaving her trip to Antarctica.
“It’s such an alien environment and it’s so dazzling, straight away,” she said.
“I had this very distinct moment of thinking, ‘This is the coolest your life will ever get. Like, this is it.’”
“I actually decided on the album name right around that trip,” she continued.
“Just coming back from that trip I thought: ‘This is what it is.’”
She’s been pretty tight-lipped on the details of album no. 3, though she did say fans will get a taste of “something” if they voted in the most recent New Zealand election.
