Lorde Set To Headline Primavera Sound Festival 2022

Get ready to unleash the melodrama! Primavera Sound announced Tuesday morning that Lorde will headline its 2022 festival.

The Barcelona music festival makes its comeback after the coronavirus pandemic canceled its 2020 and 2021 events. Primavera Sound 2022 will occur at the Parc del Fòrum across two weekends, June 2-4 and June 9-11. The full lineup will feature over 400 artists, including Tyler the Creator, Beck, Dua Lipa, Tame Impala, Megan Thee Stallion, and Lorde.

Fans erupted on Twitter with excitement about Lorde’s upcoming performance.

So why is the news about Lorde headlining Primavera Sound 2022 so important?

Primavera Sound Festival 2022 marks Lorde’s return to music

This festival will be Lorde’s first performance since concluding her Melodrama World Tour in 2018. Since then, the New Zealand singer hasn’t released new music.

Lorde has also been pretty quiet on social media while her fans anxiously awaited a new album.

In 2019, Lorde spent some time in Antarctica, and she plans to release a book documenting her trip. Titled Going South, the book features 100 pages of photos and writing pieces from her time there.

Although Lorde had gone silent on her personal Instagram account, the singer revealed on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in 2017 that she was running an onion rings account, @onionringsworldwide, where she posted hilarious reviews on fried food at different restaurants.

In 2020, the account was revived with a new post from the singer.

While we love her onion rings account, we’re excited that Lorde will be singing again.

Lorde may be releasing her third album  

After the death of her dog Pearl, Lorde told fans in 2019 that her new music would be delayed. Fortunately, in 2020 the singer announced that she was working on her third album in an email newsletter.

“The greatest treat I can give you is work that will last ten, twenty, thirty years. And that kind of work takes time,” Lorde wrote in the letter.

Also, in the email, Lorde informed her fans that she had been working with Jack Antonoff in the studio creating new music until the pandemic came.

“Jack came over to work in the studio in Auckland, and I went to LA. It flowed. A thing started to take shape. And then, of course, the world shut down. We’re still working away — Jack and I FaceTimed for over an hour this morning going over everything. But it’ll take a while longer.”

You can read her full newsletter below.

According to the Primavera Sound’s website, Lorde “will emerge from her retirement after her unforgettable visit in 2018.”

Does this mean that she’ll be releasing her third album before the festival? We hope all the signs point to yes.

Please let our hopes and dreams be true!

We’ll never be too old for Lorde.

We volunteer!
