One meme made it look like Lorde was kicking a soccer ball, while another showed her in a baby bath.

Not everyone liked Lorde’s new direction, however, with some arguing that the Royals singer had “sold out” by boosting her image.

“I’m very excited about her comeback, but it’s sad to see again the music industry pressuring women to commercialize their bodies in order to sell,” wrote one fan.

“Mama has been moaning about how ‘predictable’ and ‘disgusting’ the new Lorde album cover is,” wrote another.

The news follows Lorde’s first confirmed appearance in three years, a headliner at Spain’s Primavera Festival next year.

The Auckland-raised star, real name Ella Yellich-O’Connor, became an overnight success in 2013 with the release of her first album Pure Heroine featuring the lead single Royals.

Lorde has since eschewed traditional music release patterns, releasing just one album in the past eight years: 2017’s Melodrama.

Both albums have been commercial and critical successes; last month, Lorde and songwriter Joel Little received an industry award for reaching one billion streams of Royals.

In 2019, Lorde wrote a note to her millions of fans saying that the heartbreaking death of her dog Pearl, who “brought an immeasurable amount of joy and purpose into my world,” would delay her third album.
