Sorry, Lorde’s New Album Still Isn’t Complete

Tick tock.

But she is officially a godmother.

We all know that art takes time (and not the kind of time that most record labels would prefer), but Lorde’s situation is getting just a tad frustrating. In a new Instagram post, the 20-year-old singer/songwriter shared a teeny update on the follow-up to 2013’s Pure Heroine, and unfortunately, it’s still not done.

On Monday (January 16), the pop star unveiled an shot of her holding her best friend’s baby boy and it turned out to be one truly precious experience.

“four weeks ago i was lucky enough to witness the delivery of my beautiful best friend’s baby boy. we’ve been friends for 10 years – i can’t really describe to you how emotional and life-changing it was to be part of this with her,” she captioned the photo, adding, “had my last cuddle yesterday and now i’m back to work in the states finishing this record, but i thought you might like to meet my perfect godson, oscar robin. ?”

According to The New Zealand Herald, Lorde’s been in her homeland of New Zealand, focusing on her most recent sessions. Let’s hope that she’s able to wrap the LP in the coming weeks as she has plenty of upcoming shows, including sets at Coachella, Governors Ball and Bonnaroo.

When do you think Lorde will drop new music? Let us know in Exhale.
