Lorde to reteam with Joel Little on new album

GRAMMY-AWARD winning producer and Lorde's right-hand man Joel Little has confirmed the teenage superstar is heading back into the studio next month.

Speaking to Australia's Triple J radio, Little said the pair would reteam next month to start work on the follow up to Pure Heroine.

"Within the next month or so we'll be in the studio," he said.

"We're just going to start writing some songs. We haven't got some planned out 'This is what it's going to sound like'... I think we're just going to start writing and when it starts to feel right, we'll know that it's right. It's pretty simple really."

Last month, Lorde told reporters at the Golden Globe Awards she didn't have a timeline in place for her next album.

"For me I have to kind of write a project lyrically before I attack it musically. So I've written a lot of amazing stuff and I'm just tentatively starting to make it music."

Lorde and Little recorded her first album at the producer's Golden Age studio in Morningside, Auckland, three years ago.

It went on to spawn the global hit Royals and saw the pair nominated for a host of awards, including Song of the Year at the Grammys, which it won.

The pair also worked together on The Hunger Games hit single, Yellow Flicker Beat, which saw them nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Original Song.

Lorde has been enjoying a well-deserved summer break in New Zealand after spending most of 2014 touring internationally.
