Lorde’s latest single, also titled solar Solar Power, has garnered five-star reviews from places like NME and Pitchfork. You can listen below.
The track is the first single from Lorde’s forthcoming third studio album, which will be released on August .
The eagerly-awaited album includes 12 tracks and is produced by Jack Antonoff, whom Lorde collaborated with on her chart-topping last album, Melodrama.
Speaking about the new album Lorde says: “The album is a celebration of the natural world, an attempt at immortalising 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.”
