Did Lorde Tease Her New Single in New Zealand Ad? Watch

Lorde is definitely getting ready to be back in our lives. In addition to booking a gig on the March 11 Saturday Night Live, the "Royals" singer appeared to debut a taste of new music on Sunday night (Feb. 26) in an ad that ran in her native New Zealand according to the New Zealand Herald. The 15-second spot finds the 20-year-old singer sitting in the back seat of a car enjoying a snack and a soda as a brisk, bright piano run plays in the background.

The cryptic ad ends with the dates "3.2.17 NYC" and "3.3.17 NZ," indicating that a new song might be ready to drop on Thursday. A spokesperson for the singer could not be reached for additional information on the meaning of the dates in the ad at press time.

Check it out:

Rumor has it that Lorde -- who hasn’t released a new album since her 2013 debut LP Pure Heroine peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 -- will be releasing new music just prior to the show’s air date. Lorde has been tweeting out teases about the new album for a year, providing brief glimpses of her studio sessions with fun./Bleachers producer Jack Antonoff and, more recently, getting very vocal about her disdain for the Trump administration and its potential impact on her new sounds.

She has also booked appearances at this summer's Coachella, Bonnaroo and Governors Ball festivals.
