There’s pretty much a soft rule these days that when a popstar’s social media gets strange, cryptic or particularly sparse it means new music is coming.
And Lorde has just done all three, leading us to believe she has got something in store.
Her Twitter has been cleared entirely except for two posts from November that many fans mistook for lyrics. The truth is she is actually quoting a 19th century French poet.
Her Instagram has also been stripped down to only three photos. A recent shot of her performing, a post from last year that is a famous photo of an audience wearing 3D glasses and the final one from 2016 which might be the most telling, the words "trust me" written in neon.
