It's Lorde's birthday today. The talented creative is now twenty and she's decided to share her birthday with fans in the form of a personal letter. She took to her Facebook as the clock hit midnight to talk about the year she's had and the fact that her new album Pure Heroine is nearly completed.

"Writing Pure Heroine was my way of enshrining our teenage glory, putting it up in lights forever so that part of me never dies, and this record - well, this one is about what comes next," she said. "I just need to keep working a while longer to make it as good as it can be. You'll have to hold on. The big day is not tomorrow, or even next month realistically, but soon." Read the rest below.
