Lorde finally drops her third studio album ‘Solar Power’

In order to check out the new album, fans can hit the leading streaming platforms like Spotify and Apple Music.  Unlike her previous albums, Lorde’s new full-length record is inclined towards nature and Earth. Lorde had shared a mail last year with fans that read, “The beginning of summer is my favourite time in New Zealand, and this year in particular it feels like a gift.” And shedding light on the same, a few lines from the title track ‘Solar Power’ captured the essence perfectly. “I hate the winter / Can’t stand the cold/ But when the heat comes/ Something takes a hold.”

Lorde’s brand new record is released via Universal music and will also be available to fans on a disc-less, eco-conscious CD alternative called a “Music Box”. Each Music Box will include additional visual content, handwritten notes, exclusive photos,and a download card. Interestingly, the download card will allow fans to have access to two exclusive bonus tracks and other “special surprises” which will be announced later.

The singer-songwriter in an official statement had earlier stated, “The album is a celebration of the natural world, an attempt at immortalizing the deep, transcendent feelings I have when I’m outdoors.” The award-winning crooner continued, “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.” Lorde will also hit the road in 2022 for her ‘Solar Power’ tour. Speaking of songs, this is how the tracklist of the album looks like:
‘The Path’
‘Solar Power’
‘Stoned in the Nail Salon’
‘Fallen Fruit’
‘Secrets From a Girl (Who's Seen It All)’
‘The Man with An Axe’
‘Big Star’
