Lorde Mourns the Death of Her Beloved Dog Pearl

Lorde Mourns the Death of Her Beloved Dog Pearl

Lorde‘s dog Pearl has sadly passed away.

The “Royals” crooner revealed the sad news in a fan club newsletter on Saturday (November 2).

“I’ve been working away on the new songs for most of this year in New Zealand,” she wrote. “It’s been going pretty well, but something happened last month that I need to tell you about.”

“Some of you may know about Pearl, my dog,” she continued. “Pearl came into my life in 2018, and almost immediately changed everything for me. As anyone who has had the pleasure of raising a dog can understand, my life grew exponentially. Pearl brought an immeasurable amount of joy and purpose into my world. Love vibrated all around us. I felt my life growing and swelling in healthfulness, this orb of contentment glowing around me and Pearl, and our family.”

She then went on to describe some of the specific things she and Pearl liked to do together, adding, “I was receiving huge amounts of energy I can only describe as divine, and I was working hard to communicate it all to you by way of the album. I felt I had been given this great gift that I needed to share with you all.”

Lorde then explained that Pearl had unfortunately been ill throughout his life, and the illness ended up taking a turn for the worse.

“One day we woke up and I knew, in that way mothers do, that he was sicker than we had realised, and that we were nearing a point where his body wasn’t going to be able to cope,” she shared. “I rushed him to the specialists. Pearl had two cardiac arrests about an hour apart, and after the second one, he died. I was holding him when he went, and I know he knew that I was there. But this loss has been indescribably painful, and a light that was turned on for me has gone out.”

Pearl visits me in my dreams, and I am able to see or hold him for a brief time most nights,” Lorde penned. “But the energy I was trying to communicate you has gone, for now. He was instrumental to the discovery that was taking place. I felt he led me towards the ideas. And it’s going to take some time and recalibration, now that there’s no shepherd ahead of me, to see what the work is going to be.”

As for Lorde‘s third album, the follow-up to 2017′s Melodrama, Lorde said, “I have lost my boy, and I need some time to see the good again, to finish making this [album] for you. It won’t be the same work — as anyone who has felt loss can understand, there’s a door that opens that you step through, and everything is different on the other side.”
