It’s been two years since Lorde released her well-loved album Melodrama and she celebrated the anniversary with a written reflection and a highly-anticipated announcement.
The “Supercut” singer took to Instagram to share her thoughts and realizations about making her 2017 album, as well as how much she has grown since then.
“Apparently Melodrama came out two years ago today,” she wrote. “Want to say thank you for how you took that record and made it your own. Swells my damn heart thinking about your love for it and your willingness to go there with me and to dance the way we did together. The day it came out i did a jigsaw puzzle all day in my hotel room in NY. I felt so emptied, i didn’t really know yet that you make a record and get filled up, and then releasing it empties you…and slowly fills you up again. I was such a baby making that work, lots of emotions and learning so much all the time.”
“Feels like I’ve grown a lot since then,” she continued. “i’ve been to antarctica, i have a dog now and a cat and i can bake bread and cook dinner and keep plants alive etc. It’s a good life you’ve given me. Thankyou thankyou.”
She then ended her message with the news: “Third one in the oven.”
