It's been two years since Lorde dropped her critically-acclaimed sophomore effort, Melodrama, and the New Zealand singer commemorated the release with a lengthy note, which also teased her third studio album.
On Saturday (June 15), the 22-year-old star penned a letter via Instagram Story, reflecting back on the release and how much she's grown since then. "Apparently Melodrama came out two years ago today.. Want to say thank you for how you took that record and made it your own," she kicked off the note. "Swells my damn heart thinking about your love for it and your willingness to go there with me and to dance the way we did together. The day it came out i did a jigsaw puzzle all day in my hotel room in NY. I felt so emptied, i didn’t really know yet that you make a record and get filled up, and then releasing it empties you.. and slowly fills you up again. I was such a baby making that work, lots of emotions and learning so much all the time."
Lorde went on to admit that she feels like she's "grown a lot" since making the record. "I've been to antarctica, i have a dog now and a cat and i can bake bread and cook dinner and keep plants alive etc. It’s a good life you’ve given me. Thankyou thankyou," she continued, before adding that the "third one in the oven."
"Love to jack forever and ever. And laura who was always there," she concluded, crediting Jack Antonoff, who served as co-executive producer, and Laura Sisk, the engineer for the project.
