Lorde has hinted that she could be set to release new music next year while encouraging her fans in New Zealand to vote in the upcoming election.

The Kiwi pop star’s latest record, ‘Melodrama’, was released in 2017 to huge critical acclaim. In a five-star review, NME hailed it “as a rudely excellent album full of brilliant songs”.

As Pop Crave point out, Lorde – aka Ella Yelich-O’Connor – has tonight (October 7) taken to Instagram Stories in a bid to highlight the importance of taking to the polls in the New Zealand election on October 17.

Towards the end of her thread, Lorde posted the message: “Do it for our beautiful country and for me. And next year I’ll give you something in return.”

In turn, fans have begun speculating that Lorde’s highly-anticipated third album could be coming in 2021.

“Lorde really dropping new music next year if we vote,” one fan tweeted. “Bitch I’m already at the ballots.” Another said: “We need new Lorde music NOW.”

Elsewhere in her thread of posts, Lorde urged her followers to research the End of Life Choice Bill and the Cannabis Legalisation and Control Bill referendums.

“We know we live in a special place. And adding all of our voices to the conversation, speaking up for communities or organisations that mean something to us – that’s what helps keep it that way,” she wrote.

Back in May, Lorde offered an update on the progress of her new material. “The work is so fucking good, my friend,” she said. “I am truly jazzed for you to hear it.”

The singer also revealed that she’d been working with ‘Melodrama’ producer Jack Antonoff between Los Angeles and Auckland prior to the coronavirus crisis: “Jack and I FaceTimed for over an hour this morning going over everything. But it’ll take a while longer.”
