Since the singer wrapped up her Melodrama tour in 2018, Ella Marija Lani “Lorde” Yelich-O’Connor disappeared from social media and the public eye. All of her fans were left wondering what was going on with their beloved singer until she made an announcement her third album would be delayed as she grieved the death of her childhood dog, Pearl. A few days ago, Lorde surprised fans with a new email revealing that she and Jack Antonoff have been in the studio working on new music. In the email, Lorde revealed what she’s been up to in the Lorde-est of ways possible with her poetic and metaphorical writing. She revealed she’s been spending her time away from the media reconnecting with herself, making food, and growing out her hair.
