The 20-year-old pop star tweeted a snippet of a new song early Monday with the caption “will u love me? will u?” The track she’s teasing sounds similar to the music on her new album (particularly “Hard Feelings/Loveless”), but it also feels like a separate idea.
In a whispery, high voice she coos, “I-I just want your love / I-I just want your heart-heartbreaking love.” If that sounds like some of the best parts of her new music to you, you’re not wrong:
“Just an old melo sketch,” the singer tweeted in reply to her snippet. As Jezebel points out, no one would be mad if she released a Melodrama B-sides collection sometime soon.
Truly, Lorde. Feel free.
