Is Lorde coming back in 2021? Fans lose it as singer drops 'Solar Power' teaser pic
In addition to the teaser photo for 'Solar Power' , Lorde's website also depicted a one-line message, 'Arriving in 2021 … Patience is a virtue'
Ella Marija Lani Yelich-O'Connor, professionally known as Lorde, is hitting the trends all over social media. The 23-year-old singer-songwriter dropped a hint about her comeback and this was enough for her fans to flood Twitter with wild speculations. Lorde updated her website with the cover artwork for something called 'Solar Power'.
The site also depicted a one-line message, "Arriving in 2021 … Patience is a virtue." Last year, Lorde informed fans that she had recorded some new music with her 'Melodrama' collaborator Jack Antonoff in Auckland and Los Angeles. Lorde had published a newsletter on May 19, 2020, which revealed that work is underway on the follow-up to 2017’s 'Melodrama'. She wrote, "The work is so f***ing good, my friend. I am truly jazzed for you to hear it.”
“I started going back to the studio again in December, just for something to do, and to my surprise, good things came out,” Lorde added. "It flowed. A thing started to take shape. And then, of course, the world shut down. We’re still working away, Jack and I FaceTimed for over an hour this morning going over everything. But it’ll take a while longer. Waiting, the thing that felt so pointless and annoying when I was young, is now this kind of delicio activity," she continued. "In my opinion, the greatest treat I can give you is work that will last ten, twenty, thirty years. And that kind of work takes time. So if you can, I’d like for you to try tuning in to the time spent waiting for something of the highest quality to arrive. Enjoy the sensation as it builds. When the moment comes, our wave will crest super f***ing high. I can tell you, this new thing, it’s got its own colors now. If you know anything about my work, you’ll know what that means."
'It feels like a fever dream'
Elated with Lorde's comeback, one fan wrote, "Lorde is back this is history right here this must be how christians felt when jesus died and came back." Another user wrote, "The fact that Lorde left for 4 years and is just as relevant as she was now is literally insane." One tweet read, "Lorde is back and I'm ready to receive #SolarPower." One fan called Lorde's comeback the best thing to happen in music this year and wrote, "Lorde finally waking up after 4 years has to be the best thing to happen in music so far this year." Another fan wrote, "New lorde music is coming and it feels like a fever dream."
