Lorde claims she's working on a new album which is "totally different" to her debut record 'Pure Heroine'

Lorde claims she's working on a new album which is "totally different" to her debut record.

The 17-year-old singer, who achieved global success with her album 'Pure Heroine', feels she has grown as an artist and writer in the past year and thinks her new material is more mature.

She told the BBC: "I think I've learned so much as a songwriter, there's going to be so much of an improvement because of that.

"I'm working on stuff quite tentatively, it's definitely still at the beginning and yeah, it's totally different."

The star claims she wrote her debut album about her life in New Zealand before she became famous and people who have always been close to her, whereas her new material looks at a time after she found success and how she is now part of the showbiz world.

She explained: "I wrote the last album about that world which was the suburb where I grew up and populated by my friends and people who were really familiar to me. Now I'm in a different place every day and I'm with new people every day and it's a different vibe."

Meanwhile, Lorde will support Arcade Fire at their gig at London's Earls Court on Saturday (07.06.14), following two of her own headline shows at Shepherd's Bush Empire tonight (05.06.14) and the Brixton Academy tomorrow (06.06.14).
