Why did Lorde delay her album?
In 2019, Lorde revealed has revealed she delayed her third album following the sudden death of her dog Pearl.
The 22-year-old penned a lengthy and heartfelt note to fans describing her grief and telling them it will “take some time” to get back on track.
The singer announced she was working on her album – the follow up to 2017’s Melodrama – when her pet suddenly passed away.
She told fans: “It’s been going pretty well, but something happened last month that I need to tell you about.
“Some of you may know about Pearl, my dog. Pearl came into my life in 2018, and almost immediately changed everything for me.
“As anyone who has had the pleasure of raising a dog can understand, my life grew exponentially. Pearl brought an immeasurable amount of joy and purpose into my world.”
She went on to say that Pearl had been ill throughout his life but they had been unsure “what the illness was”.
After the dog lost some weight last month a vet worked out what was wrong and while meds helped for a while, things took a turn for the worse.
“One day we woke up and I knew, in that way mothers do, that he was sicker than we had realised, and that we were nearing a point where his body wasn’t going to be able to cope,” she continued.
“Pearl had two cardiac arrests about an hour apart, and after the second one, he died.
“I was holding him when he went, and I knew he knew that I was there. But this loss has been indescribably painful, and a light that was turned on for me has gone out.”
