Lorde teases fans about being in studio
Lorde's not telling us much about her upcoming album but at least we know she's in the studio working on it.
It has been almost three years since Kiwi pop star Ella Yelich-O'Connor released her debut album Pure Heroine, with hits like Royals catapulting her to stardom.
But the 19-year-old teased fans that she has been busy in the studio on Sunday, suggesting she may be putting the finishing touches on that long-awaited second album.
Lorde appears to be enjoying the current warmer climate in the Northern Hemisphere, posting a photo of herself wearing a New York Yankees cap and drinking a blue drink
"it's summer in the studio too", the snap was captioned.

Fans expressed their excitment about the prospect of a new album - one follower commented "Please Lorde bless us with a new album", while another asked "Babe when is your album coming?".
Following Pure Heroine, Lorde has collaborated with Disclosure on the hit Magnets, and wrote the soundtrack for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, for which she also recorded Yellow Flicker Beat.
Lorde posted in January that she had named her new album, and has previously posted videos working in the studio with producer/musician Jack Antonoff.
