Lorde will start recording her new album in "the next month," her producer Joel Little has confirmed

Lorde will start recording her new album in "the next month".

The 18-year-old pop sensation has been hard at work writing songs for the follow-up to her 2013 debut album 'Pure Heroine' and is set to begin recording with her trusted producer Joel Little in the next few weeks.

He revealed: "We're gonna get in the studio again very soon. That's the plan, basically. We're just going to start writing some songs."

Elaborating on when the sessions would be taking place, he added: "Really soon. Like within the next month or so we'll be in the studio."

The 32-year-old producer - who has also worked with Ellie Goulding and Sam Smith - continued to say the LP may not fall into the same genre as the 'Royals' hitmaker's multi-platinum debut, as they are being completely open-minded about the sound.

He said: "We haven't got some planned out 'this is what it's going to sound like'... I think we're just going to start writing and when it starts to feel right, we'll know that it's right. It's pretty simple really."

And while Lorde's first record sold millions of copies around the world, Joel added neither of them are feeling any pressure to live up to the standard set by 'Pure Heroine'.

He told Australia's Triple J radio station: "You can't control what you're going to come up with on the day.

"If you think about it like that you're not going to come up with anything good. Some days you're in the studio and things don't click, you don't write anything good. And some days you're in the studio and things go great."
