It looks like new music from Lorde might very well be on the way!

It’s barely been a few months since Lorde made her epic comeback with her second studio album, Melodrama but it looks like the “Green Light” singer has already got some new music to share with her adoring fans.

The pop star sent fans into a frenzy over the weekend when she took to Twitter to tease a clip of a brand new song that isn’t featured on her sophomore record.

“will u love me? will u?” tweeted the singer before following up with a short video which featured new music.

“I just want your love, I just want your heart, heart-breaking love, I just want your love, oh, give me what I want,” sings Lorde over a simple piano melody.

Though it sounds as though the clip could be part of a demo, it’s definitely cause for excitement. Given that it’s only been a few months since Lorde hit us with a new album full of heart wrenching lyrics, it seems almost too good to be true that the singer could have some more new tunes coming down the pipeline sooner than we wall thought.

That being said, quite a few fans took to Twitter shortly after the singer posted the tease and began theorizing that perhaps the clip is part of a song that could be featured on a deluxe version of Melodrama.

From the little we’ve heard of the new track, it definitely sounds like it would fit right in with the emotionally charged nature of the New Zealand native’s sophomore record.

We guess we’ll just have to wait and see if the fan theories end up proving true. Here’s hoping Lorde releases the full version of the new track soon— we’d definitely love to hear it in its entirety!

Quentin Tarantino says he knew about Harvey Weinstein’s behavior: ‘I knew enough to do more than I did’

In a new interview with The New York Times, director Quentin Tarantino — whose films have largely been distributed by The Weinstein Company — admits he knew how Harvey Weinstein treated women.

Earlier this month The Times and The New Yorker published bombshell reports revealing horrific behavior by TWC founder Harvey Weinstein. The reports — and the revelations that came in the days after — rocked Hollywood.

Tarantino remained silent until Thursday’s interview. In it, he tells The Times he “knew enough to do more than I did.”

“It was more to it than just the normal rumors, the normal gossip. It wasn’t secondhand. I knew he did a couple of these things,” Tarantino said, referencing the stories recently shared by “prominent” actresses.

“I wish I had taken responsibility for what I heard. If I had done the work I should have done then, I would have had to not work with him.”

Tarantino admits that he can offer nothing but a “crappy” excuse at this point. Even though he heard stories about his business partner on multiple occasions, he “chalked it up to a ’50s-’60s era image of a boss chasing a secretary around the desk. As if that’s O.K. That’s the egg on my face right now.”

The director, whose most recent film The Hateful Eight was distributed by The Weinstein Company, says that he tried to reach out to the disgraced Hollywood mogul after the reports were published, but Weinstein didn’t pick up. More of Tarantino’s remarks can be read over on The Times’ website.

As more women share their stories, Hollywood is starting to take (some) action. Last week The Weinstein Company fired their founder, and The Academy voted to remove him from their ranks.

Explaining their vote to expel him, The Academy said in a statement, “We do so not simply to separate ourselves from someone who does not merit the respect of his colleagues but also to send a message that the era of willful ignorance and shameful complicity in sexually predatory behavior and workplace harassment in our industry is over. What’s at issue here is a deeply troubling problem that has no place in our society.”
