AceShowbiz - Lorde is getting ready to release new music after bouncing back from the death of her pet dog.
The "Royals" singer lost her passion for music after Pearl's death in November 2019, and asked fans urging her to release new tracks to be patient.
"He (Pearl) was instrumental to the discovery that was taking place," she wrote at the time. "I felt he led me towards the ideas, and it's going to take some time and re-calibration, now that there's no shepherd ahead of me, to see what the work is going to be."
But now Lorde is back in the studio working on the follow-up to her 2017 album "Melodrama".
"It's definitely too soon for me to talk about anything, but I will say that it's been a very productive year," she told New Zealand radio station The Edge on Friday, April 3, 2020.
"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."
