Lorde, the pop star who went to Number One with a song she wrote and recorded when she was 16, has yet to follow up her 2013 debut LP, Pure Heroine. With a Coachella appearance announced this week, it looks like it may be coming soon. On the cusp of her 20th birthday, the pop star wrote about her upcoming LP on Instagram: "Writing Pure Heroine was my way of enshrining our teenage glory, putting it up in lights forever so that part of me never dies, and this record – well, this one is about what comes next. I want nothing more than to spill my guts RIGHT NOW about the whole thing – I want you to see the album cover, pore over the lyrics (the best I've written in my life), touch the merch, experience the live show. I can hardly stop myself from typing out the name. I just need to keep working a while longer to make it as good as it can be. You'll have to hold on. The big day is not tomorrow, or even next month realistically, but soon. I know you understand."
