Lorde finally released Solar Power. This is her first full-length album in four years. Lorde stated that the album was a celebration and homage to the natural world. She also tried to capture the deep, transcendent emotions she experiences when outdoors.
“In times when I feel lost, confused, heartbroken, grieving, deep love or despair, I turn to the natural world for help. I have learned to let go and tune in. This is how it came out. The 12-track project, which Jack Antonoff produced with Melodrama, focuses exclusively on the New Zealand singer’s sound and has no collaborations. Lorde will celebrate Solar Power’s release in an original, disc-less format: An eco-conscious Music Box.”
Lorde said, “I made the decision early in the process that I wanted to create an environmentally-friendly, forward-thinking alternative for the CD.” I wanted the Music Box product to look and feel like a CD. It could be sold in a similar retail environment as a CD but still stand out and be committed to the evolution of an album. You can stream Solar Power now via Spotify or Apple Music.
Jack Antonoff, Melodrama collaborator, produced 12 tracks for the Grammy Award-winning multiplatinum artist. Lorde stated in a press release that the album was a celebration and tribute to the natural world. It aims to capture the deep, transcendent emotions she experiences when outdoors. “In times when I feel lost, confused, heartbroken, grieving, deep love or despair, I turn to the natural world for help. I have learned to let go and tune in. This is how it came out.
Lorde will also debut Solar Power in a unique, disc-less format – an eco-conscious Music Box that can be used as an alternative to CDs.
