"It’s happy and sad, fiery and independent but vulnerable and small, joyous even when a heart is breaking," Lorde writes of the 2010 dance hit.
After taking a few months off at the beginning of 2015 to unwind from her Pure Heroine tour and the process of curating the Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 soundtrack, Lorde is back in the studio focusing on her "next body of work," as she describes in a new Tumblr post. The New Zealand alt-pop star writes to fans about the process of piecing together what will presumably become her sophomore album, and how she used Robyn's majestic 2010 single "Dancing On My Own" as inspiration of sorts during a recent studio session.
As Lorde describes it, she was recently in the studio "with some new friends" talking about songs they wish could remain immortal. Someone said Lou Reed's "Perfect Day," someone else said the Beach Boys' "God Only Knows." Lorde's choice: "Dancing On My Own."
