Lorde returns with a new song “solar power” The New Zealand singer-songwriter Lorde has released her new single “Solar Power” just after announcing her forthcoming album with the same name. This is her first single after her 2017 album release “Melodrama”.
Solar Power is a surprise release by the artist timed just right to coincide with the solar eclipse in the northern hemisphere.
It is co-produced by the American singer and record produce Jack Antonoff with the back vocals from Phoebe Bridgers and Clairo.
This summery three-minute-long song gives out the chilling-on-the-beach-with-loved-one’s vibes, accompanied with acoustic guitar which is unlike Lorde’s previous releases.
On first listen you realize that it is a peppy song about a woman who is confident in what she is, both physically and mentally, and calling everyone to join her on the joyous journey of experiencing summer bliss.
Solar Power was expected to release back in 2020, but the sudden departure of her late dog Pearl made her halt its release.
The singer told an Australian youth radio station Triple J on Friday morning that the forthcoming album will be “light, playful and fun”.
While explaining her upcoming album, she writes :
“The album is a celebration of the natural world, an attempt at immortalizing the deep, transcendent feelings I have when I’m outdoors. In times of heartache, grief, deep love, or confusion, I look to the natural world for answers. I’ve learned to breathe out, and tune in. This is what came through.”
She also added: “I want this album to be your summer companion, the one you pump on the drive to the beach. The one that lingers on your skin like a tan as the months get cooler again.”

Lorde is a two-time Grammy Awards and two Brit Awards winner, along with one Golden Globe nomination. She follows mostly electropop for her music, with dream pop and indie-electro as subgenres.
Her most famous works include Royals and Green light. She also sang an OST for the movie The Hunger Game: Catching Fire.
