Lorde Surprises Fans With New Song "Solar Power"

Along with a sunkissed music video.

UPDATE (June 10, 2021): Following much anticipation, Lorde has surprise-dropped her latest single titled “Solar Power.” The track arrives alongside a sunkissed music video set on the beach.

The release comes after the New Zealand singer shared with fans that she was working on something new. “I started going back to the studio in December, just for something to do, and to my surprise, good things came out,” she wrote in a newsletter.

In the latest track, Lorde sings in a stunning yellow two-piece: “Forget all the tears you’ve cried/It’s over/It’s a new state of mind.” She dances on the beach, as she continues: “The girls are dancing in the sand/And I throw my cellular device in the water/Can you reach me?/No, you can’t.”

Watch the music video above and stream “Solar Power” via major platforms like Apple Music and Spotify.


ORIGINAL STORY (June 8, 2021): Last year, Lorde updated fans that she was working on new music via a newsletter. “The work is so f*cking good, my friend,” she wrote. “I am truly jazzed for you to hear it.”

Now, the New Zealand singer-songwriter has unveiled the cover art on her website for her upcoming project titled “Solar Power.” Specific details are still vague at the moment. However, in Lorde’s 2020 announcement, the new work was created with her Melodrama collaborator Jack Antonoff in Auckland and Los Angeles.

Take a closer look at the project’s cover art above. Stay tuned while we wait for more details.
