Lorde Is Working on New Music With Disclosure
Back in February, Lorde’s producer Joel Little revealed that the New Zealand singer-songwriter had plans to enter the studio within the “next month or so” to record her next full-length. Judging by a recent tweet from the "Royals" singer, Little's estimation has proven to be true, as she is apparently working on new material with Disclosure.
In addition to indulging in Oreo milkshakes, Lorde said she and brothers Howard and Guy Lawrence are “making tunes”:
This is all good news considering Lorde previously said she wasn't concerned about creating a timeline for her sophomore effort. As for Little, he said the pair’s creative process is relatively straightforward.
“We’re just going to start writing some songs … I think we’re just going to start writing and when it starts to feel right, we’ll know that it’s right,” he said in an interview. “It’s pretty simple really.”
Lorde’s highly anticipated follow-up to her 2013 debut, Pure Heroine, isn’t the only new music Disclosure has in the works. The English electro outfit will drop their own sophomore LP, Caracal, on Sept. 25 via PMR/Island Records. So far, they have already premiered two tracks from the forthcoming album, including “Bang That” and “Holding On.”
When discussing the album’s cover art and title, Howard Lawrence said, “A caracal is an incredible wild cat that I became fascinated with while on tour last year. I just love the way they look, their physical capabilities and their anonymity. It felt like a perfect fit for our Wild Life brand too, so the caracal made perfect sense as the lead visual for the new album and over the course of recording, it also felt like a natural title for the new record too.”
