It’s currently officially Hot Girl Green-Energy-Powered Summer.
Buzz about the details of Lorde’s freshest single zipped through the internet in the course of the most recent few days following the declaration of her pending Primavera Sound performance, all leading up to impatient fans releasing the name and cover art for the single recently. Tried by her earnest listeners, Lorde officially announced the title of her new single, “Solar Power,” releasing sometime in 2021.
In a almost pointed line toward her fans she writes “Arriving in 2021 … Patience is a virtue.”
She didn’t share the news anyplace via social media (she hasn’t tweeted since 2017), however did it the old fashioned way and updated her website with the new single title and cheeky cover art. They mean brassy in a real sense for this case, with the New Zealander’s back completely in see as she runs over the camera along the beach.
The 24-year-old singer-songwriter has taken a healthy break away from releasing music, live performances, and the public spotlight, with her last show in 2018 as a part of the Melodrama World Tour. Throughout the most recent four years she’s gone on an outing to the Antartica (releasing a photograph book about the journey called Going South), mourned the lost of her dog Pearl, and generally minded her own business. The solitary news about her life and new music has come from her email newsletters to fans, where she’s revealed that she’s reuniting with maker Jack Antonoff for the new album.
Lorde’s first collection, Pure Heroine, was released in 2013. The single “Royals” went to win the Grammy for Song of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance, making her the most youngest person to at any point get these honors. Her 2017 sophomore album Melodrama got a Grammy nomination for Album of the Year.
