“As Solar Power meditates on the tension between achievement and comfort, it grazes masterpiece status—the only thing holding it back may be Lorde’s disinterest in chasing accolades.” – The Atlantic
“She’s so great at this, so convincing and smart, you’ll feel yourself falling under Solar Power’s spell … She may not be our deity anymore, but in the world of pop music, Lorde’s ability to make moving art is everlasting.” – i-D
“At 24, Lorde is already a de facto elder stateswoman of the female-centered sound she helped pioneer: a nameless genre somewhere between high-gloss pop and indie rock, untroubled by the stringent rules of Hot 100 radio.” – Entertainment Weekly
“Solar Power is a lot of things, but more than anything, it sounds like true autonomy.” – The Cut
Today, GRAMMY®Award-winning multiplatinum artist Lorde releases her highly anticipated third studio album ‘Solar Power’.
The album is already garnering stellar reviews. ‘Solar Power’ includes 12 tracks and is produced by Jack Antonoff, who she collaborated with on her chart-topping last album, ‘Melodrama’.
Lorde says: “The album is a celebration of the natural world, an attempt at immortalizing 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.”
Lorde will take to the stage today to headline the “GMA” Summer Concert Series with her first in-person Central Park show in nearly two years. Then starting 23rd August, Lorde will join ‘The Late Late Show with James Corden‘ for a week-long residency during the show’s first week back from summer hiatus.
To honour the natural world Lorde is presenting the album in a first-of-its kind, discless format. An eco-conscious Music Box will be available for purchase in lieu of a CD. This innovative offering will contain some of those special extras that fans might normally receive in a CD packet, such as visual content, handwritten notes, exclusive photos, and a download card. The card will give purchasers a high-quality download of the music, two exclusive bonus tracks, and access to some special surprises along the way.
Lorde has also announced her 2022 World Tour dates. The tour promoted by Frontier Touring in Australia, is her first Australian tour in five years and kicks off in March 2022.
