this guy composes “fantasy music” that is so good for writing my book but its titles are so deeply embarrassing, i’m like time to put on my fave tracks of legend of ordalys ii, “the lord of abyss” and “the magic valley of the elves”
BIG NEWS THURSDAY!!!! Featuring LORDE and FLORENCE + THE MACHINE: One finished an album, another finished a song
Today is a golden day in the music industry. Two leading ladies are tearing it up.
Florence, who has been cranking out beautiful songs for the new Final Fantasy game (FF XV)—like Stand by Me, Too Much is Never Enough, and I will be—has teamed up with Tim Burton to write a new song for Mrs. Peregrin’s Home for Peculiar Children. “Wish That You Were Here” is as beautiful as anything else she’s put out.
Lorde has confirmed she’s finished the second album, after 3 years of toiling away. After a fan came after her on Instagram, asking if she’ll ever release a new album or if fans should just give up on her as an artist.
To which Lorde thoughtfully replied, “Give up on me if you want to! I’m an artist, I write a record when I have enough special stories to tell, and it’s all me, every melody every lyric, not some team who just start the machine up every eighteen months like clockwork. the record is written, we’re in the production stages now I’ve worked like a dog for a year making this thing great for you guys.”
It’s sort of like that time Lana Del Rey was annoyed with “Where’s Tropico?” comments.
So it looks like we have a new Lorde album to absorb and digest coming out EVENTUALLY. I have no doubt it’s going to be just as fantastic, precise, critical, and intelligent as everything else she’s produced.
