With a hit single already under her belt, Lorde is looking toward the release of her debut album, True Heroine, which Universal announced today (Aug. 12) will be released Sept. 30.
“Everything on the EP was written when I was 15,” she said in an interview with Radio.com. “So much has happened in my life since then, and I really want the album to reflect those changes and experiences.”
Andven though te singer hasn’t even released a proper album yet, but she’s already reached No. 1. The 16-year-old singer from New Zealand, whose real name is Ella Yelich-O’Conner, owns the top slot on the Alternative Songs chart this week with her song “Royals” off her EP, The Love Club. This week, “Royals” sits at No. 14 on the playlist of influential Los Angeles alternative station KROQ.
