Lorde dropped her first single since 2017’s Melodrama.
“Solar Power” is all about summer’s simple pleasures: warm sun, warm sand, a boyfriend who will take your picture for the ’gram.
Lorde celebrated the song’s release with an email to fans saying, “There’s someone I want you to meet. Her feet are bare at all times. She’s sexy, playful, feral, and free. She’s a modern girl in a deadstock bikini, in touch with her past and her future, vibrating at the highest level when summer comes around. Her skin is glowing, her lovers are many. I’m completely obsessed with her, and soon you will be too.”
“It’s my divine pleasure to be introducing you, at long last, to my third studio album, SOLAR POWER.”
She described the album as “a celebration of the natural world, an attempt at immortalizing the deep, transcendent feelings I have when I’m outdoors.” She hinted that “Solar Power” the album will be released on June 20, the day of the summer solstice in the Northern Hemisphere.
