New Zealand musical ambassador and precocious teen Lorde is gearing up for the follow-up to last year's breakthrough success Pure Heroine.

Talking to triple j, Lorde revealed that her second album will come from a different place than the first. She can't exactly sing about not being a megarich popstar anymore.

"It's kind of hard to explain how it's sounding because I'm totally just at the beginning of the writing process," she told triple j's Matt and Alex. "But I'm excited because my life is so different and I've got this whole new set of experiences to draw on.

She's also hoping to work together with producer Joel Little again, her partnership with whom she described as "a chemical perfect match".

Lorde was most recently in headlines when Iggy Azalea slammed her Nirvana tribute, saying she didn't think it was "appropriate" for someone at Lorde's level to be representing Kurt Cobain. And this just a couple months after Lorde was defending Iggy against the alleged double-standard shown towards her by Complex magazine! Oy vey.

On the recent Australian tour postponement, Lorde said "I was sick [but] everyone was like: 'Okay, we have to cancel the tour!' And I said: 'No we don't! I'm going! By myself if I have to.' I'm super glad to be able to do the dates finally because Australian crowds are just so ready for a party. It's gonna be fun."
