L3 is an untitled third album by New Zealand singer Lorde.
Lorde has not started production for her third album yet, but when asked if she was thinking about it, Lorde said "yeah". Soon after, a Twitter account pointed out all the references to dancing on "Melodrama", saying:
"on the light-up floor, with the truth, with all the heartache, with us , w our shoes off, to it, in my storm, in the living room, for meLorde responded saying “Wow LOL I didn’t realise it was at this level..Needless to say next record will move firmly away from dancing & explore new worlds :-) But right now I literally live to dance & I’m so proud to have written my thesis on it this time—it’s religion/therapy/purgatory/heaven.”. A few weeks later, she commented on a possible third album, saying it could take any amount of time, from four years to ten years.
In late 2017, Lorde said she wishes to produce and write an album by herself with no help within the next five years. She again commented on this saying,
"It's stepping up and becoming a producer that I found super liberating. I’ve got a bit of a goal for myself. I don't know if it will be the next record or the one after, but I eventually want to produce an entire record myself."In May 2018, she deleted all of her Instagram posts except three and changed her entire layout. She revealed this was because she was "a baby writer in search of a legacy", and would keep her fans posted. She also said she "decided to be clean," and she was "gonna step back from social media and find new ways and exciting ways of communicating with you guys."
