Lorde Returns With New Song “Solar Power”
- New Zealand singer-songwriter Ella Yelich-O'Connor, aka Lorde returned with a new song “Solar Power” on June 11, 2021.
The song is her first single since the 2017 album “Melodrama” in four years.
Also, The track will appear on her upcoming fourth studio album of the same name.
She worked with American singer-songwriter Jack Antonoff on the track.
Lorde said of the song, “'Solar Power,' written and produced by myself and Jack, is the first of the rays. It's about that infectious, flirtatious summer energy that takes hold of us all, come June (or December, if you're a Southern Hemisphere baby like me but I know that's literally IMPOSSIBLE for you all to wrap your little heads around so don't worry about it!!).”
The accompanying music video was directed by Joel Kefali and Ella Yelich-O'Connor. She said, “I made something that encapsulates where I'm from — my family, my girlfriends, my outdoors, my constant ruminations, and my unending search for the divine.”
The new album is expected to be released in 2021.
“There's someone I want you to meet,” she said. “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 continued, “There's so much more detail to come — a truly comical amount of detail, honestly. You can look to the natural calendar for clues. I'm trying to listen to what's out there more, and the vibe I got was that you're ready for this, that you need it. 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.”
