Lorde’s Next Album Will Be Delayed After The Death Of Her Dog

Lorde has been particularly quiet since the end of her Melodrama tour in 2017 and now we know why.

The singer sent an unusual newsletter to her fans announcing that her third album would be delayed after her dog Pearl died.

“Pearl had two cardiac arrests about an hour apart, and after the second one, he died,” Lorde wrote. “I was holding him when he went, and I know he knew that I was there. But this loss has been indescribably painful, and a light that was turned on for me has gone out.”

The New Zealand artist said that she has been “working away on the new songs for most of this year” but since Pearl’s death “the bright energy I was trying to communicate to you has gone, for now.”

“I’m asking for your patience, as 2020 comes around and you start to wonder where the next record is,” she continues. “I have lost my boy, and I need some time to see the good again, to finish making this for you. It won’t be the same work — as anyone who has felt loss can understand, there’s a door that opens that you step through, and everything is different on the other side. But when this great loss crystallises inside me, and my chest rebuilds around it, hopefully I’ll be able to finish up, and share it with you, and we’ll all grow together, as we always do.”
