    Lorde is releasing a book about her trip to Antarctica

    The 'Royals' singer paid a visit to the polar continent early last year as she has always been "fascinated" by the region and she's so delighted with the "beautiful" photos her friend took during the trip, she's releasing a collection of them alongside a piece of writing about her experiences on her holiday


    She announced in an email to fans: "In early 2019 I took a trip to Antarctica. The continent has fascinated me since I was old enough to read.

    ""It started to interest me again in recent years as my environmental awareness went up and up, and questions about how to change my personal and professional footprints on this earth occupied much of my time.

    "I was accompanied down there by my beautiful friend Harriet Were, who photographed our days, lugging all these cameras and lenses and film — yup, she shot completely on film in Antarctica — around in the snow.

    "And the pictures turned out so beautiful, I thought it was only right to make them into a little catalogue-style book, alongside a piece of writing I did about my experience on the frozen continent.”

    The 24-year-old star revealed the trip - which was funded by government agency Antarctica New Zealand - also inspired her newest album and the book will act as a "perfect precursor" to the record.

    She wrote: "Albums live in their own realms in a way, and Antarctica really acted as this great white palette cleanser, a sort of celestial foyer I had to move through in order to start making the next thing.

    “In the plane coming down to land, I had this very intense bolt-of-lightning thought, which in all its eloquence was literally ‘DON’T MAKE S*** RECORDS’, lol.

    "I’ll always hold this trip up as a life highlight for many reasons, but I’m particularly grateful for it as one that showed me the beginnings of the new world which I continue to build, and am very excited to start showing you soon.

    “The book is a sort of perfect precursor to this album in an abstract way, and it’s a cool little piece of the Lorde cinematic universe for you to own if you’d like to."

    The book will be titled 'Going South' and all proceeds from its sale will go towards a scholarship for an Antarctica New Zealand postgrad scholar researching climate change. It is available for pre-order now and expected to be released in February next year.
