Lorde Drops "Stoned at the Nail Salon," Second Single off Upcoming Album
“Maybe I’m just stoned at the nail salon again.”
The down-tempo, contemplative song exudes summertime nostalgia. Over the course of four-and-a-half minutes, Lorde recounts fading memories to soft acoustic guitar. “‘Cause all the music you loved at sixteen, you’ll grow out of / And all the times they will change, it’ll all come around,” she croons, ending each verse with an apt closing: “I don’t know / Maybe I’m just stoned at the nail salon / Maybe I’m just stoned at the nail salon again.”
In a press release, Lorde explained that the song is “sort of a rumination on getting older, settling into domesticity, and questioning if you’ve made the right decisions.” She added that the writing process was “super comforting.”
Listen to “Stoned at the Nail Salon” above and stay tuned for Solar Power, scheduled to release on August 20.
