Lorde Says Her Next Album Is "Skeletal," but Will Be About "Feeling Displaced"

Lorde's non-stop tour schedule has meant that she really hasn't had a lot of time to work on the follow-up to her best-selling, award-winning debut, Pure Heroine.  But while she says the new disc's "hardly even started," she knows what its theme will be.
