Lorde's row with demanding fans
Lorde has hit back at fans who are demanding a new album.
The 19-year-old singer has yet to release a follow-up to her 2013 debut 'Pure Heroine' but was furious when a fan took to Instagram to complain about how long it is taking.
A fan wrote: "Do you think we will ever get another album or should we just give up on you as an artist?" and Lorde responded: "Give up on me if you want to! I'm an artist, I write a record when I have enough special stories to tell, and it's all me, every melody every lyric, not some team who just start the machine up every eighteen months like clockwork."
However, Lorde revealed in her rant that the album has been written and is currently in production, so fans should have new music soon.
She added: "The record is written, we're in the production stages now. I've worked like a dog for a year making this thing great for you guys."
The 'Royals' hitmaker recently revealed that she had spent three days alone in the wilderness, working on the record.
She tweeted: "took a helicopter out into the wilderness spent 3 days alone writing and made some of the most exciting breakthroughs on this record so far (sic)."
