Fresh off the release of her new single ‘Solar Power’, Lorde has shared a new teaser video on her website. The silent clip, titled ‘Every Perfect Summer’s Gotta Take Its Flight’, features crop circles and sand writing that spell out ‘SP’. The title could be a reference to the ‘Liability’ lyric, “Every perfect summer’s eating me alive,” from 2017’s Melodrama. Watch it here.
‘Solar Power’, which features backing vocals from Clairo and Phoebe Bridgers, is the title track to the New Zealand pop star’s upcoming third album. “The album is a celebration of the natural world, an attempt at immortalising the deep, transcendent feelings I have when I’m outdoors,” she wrote in her newsletter. “In times of heartache, grief, deep love, or confusion, I look to the natural world for answers. I’ve learnt to breathe out, and tune in. This is what came through.”
“I want this album to be your summer companion, the one you pump on the drive to the beach,” she added. “The one that lingers on your skin like a tan as the months get cooler again.”
