Has it really been eight years since “Royals” hit the shelves and vaulted New Zealand’s Lorde on the world map? She’s back today with her third album, “Solar Power,” a 12-song tribute to the joys of summer, written and produced remotely during the pandemic with her long-time collaborator Jack Antonoff (fun., Bleachers, Taylor Swift).
Speaking about the evolution of “Solar Power” with Dazed, Lorde said: “The feeling of writing that… it’s like drugs to me. It’s the reason I make music; there’s no better feeling than pop alchemy building in real time.”
“I’ve grown a lot,” she continued, “I’ve done a lot. I’m happy. I work out a tonne, my body’s hot. I’m feeling good. Life is good, you know, and I’m bringing you in on where I’m at right now, and I hope people get that.
The Guardian said, “Equipped with lovely melodies and a bombast-resistant sound, the New Zealander exchanges the spotlight for a sly reflection on true happiness.”
