Lorde last graced the world with a new track in 2014, so Twitter was rightfully abuzz when the 20-year-old singer-songwriter debuted a mysterious ad on New Zealand TV, and then tweeted a cryptic website domain

The website features only a 15-second clip which sees the “Royals” singer sitting in the backseat of a limo snacking on fries in between sips of a soft drink. An unknown instrumental plays in the background, which many speculate could be a teaser for Lorde’s new single. Two dates appear on the screen, accompanied by locations: 3.2.17 NYC and 3.3.17 NZ. 

After assuring fans on social media she’s been working on new music a few months ago, it’s quite possible these are supposed release dates. The tab title of the website reads,"M*******A," and is presumably the name of her upcoming record. If the rumors are true, it’ll mark the first stand-alone musical project we’ve seen from Lorde since her critically acclaimed debut album, Pure Heroine.

She's scheduled to perform on SNL in two weeks, and is slated to appear at music festivals Governors Ball, Bonnaroo, and Coachella later this year—all of which also suggest the Grammy Award winner is up to something.
