Teased a couple of days ago, by sharing only the cover art and a title, we now receive Lorde’s first solo material in four years, “Solar Power.”
Co-produced by Jack Antonoff and the artist herself, the new single is built on warm acoustic guitars, thick percussion and background vocals from Clairo and Phoebe Bridgers.
In addition to the track, Lorde shared in her newsletter that the release is the title track of her upcoming album. “The album is a celebration of the natural world, an attempt at immortalising the deep, transcendent feelings I have when I’m outdoors,” she wrote. “In times of heartache, grief, deep love, or confusion, I look to the natural world for answers. I’ve learnt to breathe out, and tune in. This is what came through.”
