New Zealand star Lorde has become a global name as of late, following the huge success of her debut album ‘Heroine’ which she has been busy promoting at various events.

While she’s still promoting the record, the singer-songwriter is busy at work writing for her second album and has confessed that fans can expect some “weird, cool stuff”.

Lorde released her debut album ‘Pure Heroine’ back in 2013 and has spoken recently with Billboard about upcoming fresh material.

She explained during the interview that while she’s working on new material, she isn’t sure “how everything will end up” and realises that for now it sounds much the same as her first record.

She added that for now she’s trying to get that out of her system and move her writing “to a new place” and revealed that she’s been working with “some good people” doing “weird, cool stuff”.

Lorde went on to add how she approaches her projects and explained that she thinks about it “as a whole” and makes each individual part count.

The ‘Royals’ sensation added that with her live shows, she has poured her heart and soul into it and making it like she’s showing off the inside of her brain live on stage.

Lorde continued: “Now I am super methodically planning everything and making sure everything links up and how that will tie into the next album and the album after that. I’m looking at the big picture much more.”

In other Lorde news it was also confirmed that the young star would be working on the official soundtrack for upcoming movie ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1’.

The movie is due out on the 21st of November and Lorde explained that she found it challenging, but had to jump at the chance to do it.

Lorde revealed that both the cast and the story are inspirational for any musicians taking part and confessed that the soundtrack is going to be surprising.

The New Zealand star will curate the soundtrack by picking the songlist and artists to feature throughout the film but for now, that’s all top secret.
