The birthday dedication was accompanied by a photo of a watercolour card, which appeared to be homemade by the Shake It Off hitmaker herself.

Meanwhile, earlier this year, Lorde shut down a fan who threatened to 'give up' on her if she didn't release new music soon.

The heated social media exchange began when the fan wrote on Lorde's Instagram account: 'Do you think we will ever get another album or should we just give up on you as an artist?'

She responded: 'Give up on me if you want to!

'I'm an artist, I write a record when I have enough special stories to tell, and it's all me, every melody every lyric, not some team who just start the machine up every eighteen months like clockwork.

'The record is written, we're in the production stages now. I've worked like a dog for a year making this thing great for you guys.'
