Lorde is ready to embark on the daunting task of following up her 2013 Grammy-winning debut, Pure Heroine. The New Zealand pop star is set to return to the studio with producer and collaborator Joel Little to begin work on her sophomore album.
Speaking to Australia’s triple j radio, Little said he and Lorde will hit the studio “really soon … like within the next month or so we’ll be in the studio.” Their first plan of action is to write, he explained: “We haven’t got some planned out ‘this is what it’s going to sound like’ … I think we’re just going to start writing and when it starts to feel right, we’ll know that it’s right. It’s pretty simple really.”
“I don’t know where the inspiration comes from for stuff. You work and at some point you feel you suck for the first 10 hours and in the last hour in the studio something great happens. You just never know when it’s going to come.”
Little helmed every track on Pure Heroine, including the record’s smashing single and our 2013 song of the year, “Royals”.
