Following up to her highly acclaimed debut record “Pure Heroine” that skyrocketed her career, Lorde is reportedly working on a new album and the “Royals” singer has some words for her upcoming release.
In a report by Rolling Stone , the 18-year-old singer revealed in a Tumblr post that she been inspired by Robyn’s “Dancing On My Own,” as the sound heard from the 2011 hit will be expected on her new album.
“First records are like meeting someone and feeling that need to do everything, just in case for whatever reason, you run out of time, or they stop feeling the same way as you,” Lorde said in a long post.
“I feel much calmer, more comfortable in my love of doing this, and its apparent love of me, this time around.
So there’s that.” She further revealed how inspiring the song is to her and even called the track a “perfect song.” “The other day I was in the studio with some new friends, and I asked them which one song they would send into space, to live on forever, if they had to,” she continued.
“I thought about it for a while, thought about Talking Heads and Fleetwood Mac and Nina Simone, but the song that came out of my mouth was ‘Dancing on My Own’ by Robyn.
This song, to me, is perfect.
“It’s happy and sad, fiery and independent but vulnerable and small, joyous even when a heart is breaking.
Every line is perfect.” “We put it on right there in the studio, and I was up out of my seat dancing with my eyes screwed shut, and my hands up around my ears, and we looked into each other’s eyes and sang the words, and I could feel something hot and teary in the back of my throat just from Feeling so much at once.
And I think it was then when I realized I’m going to be in love with music for the rest of my life.
It’s going to be the most important friendship I’ll ever have.”
