GOING SOUTH is out soon...

Lorde has confirmed plans for new photo book GOING SOUTH.

The New Zealand pop auteur confirmed the plan in her latest newsletter, which features 100 pages of photography from her 2019 trip to Antarctica, shot by Lorde's friend Harriet Were.

The trip seems to represent an important moment in her creativity, and spurred Lorde to move on from 2017's 'Melodrama'.

“When I went to Antarctica, I hadn’t yet started writing again after finishing 'Melodrama'”, she commented.

“I realised after the trip that what my brain had been craving was a visit to an alternate realm. Albums live in their own realms in a way, and Antarctica really acted as this great white palette cleanser, a sort of celestial foyer I had to move through in order to start making the next thing. In the plane coming down to land, I had this very intense bolt-of-lightning thought, which in all its eloquence was literally ‘DON’T MAKE SHIT RECORDS’, lol.”

“I’ll always hold this trip up as a life highlight for many reasons, but I’m particularly grateful for it as one that showed me the beginnings of the new world which I continue to build, and am very excited to start showing you soon.”
