Lorde is giving us more details about her highly anticipated sophomore album, although very cryptically. Earlier today, the artist tweeted a map of Auckland with three points, telling her fans to check out those spots at 9:30pm local time. The Town Hall location featured a projection featuring a 5 second clip of a new song "Green Light," while another featured green light and smoke emerging from a beat-up white car.
But it doesn't stop there. A mysterious 16-second TV ad aired on New Zealand Sunday night, teasing that something will go down in her native country March 2. Yesterday, yet another teaser with similar music was posted on the artist’s mysterious new website imwaitingforit.com, mentioning a happening in New York City on March 3. Check out the videos below:
Writing on her Facebook page to her fans on her birthday back in November, she explained that while her debut Pure Heroine was about “enshrining our teenage glory”, her sophomore album “Is about what comes next”. Lorde’s new album is expected to drop March 7, according to an image that leaked two weeks ago. She also has a slew of worldwide tour dates planned this spring and summer, including headlining festival slots at Bonaroo, Coachella, and Governor’s Ball. The suspense is terrible, but the wait is almost over.
