After 4 Years, Lorde Is Finally Releasing New Music, I Think
In between living off the grid and reviewing onion rings on Instagram, Lorde has found the time to answer all our prayers by uploading a vaguely explicit artwork of a woman in a thong with the text “Solar Power”, featuring a cryptic message “ARRIVING IN 2021 … PATIENCE IS A VIRTUE” on her website on Monday.
Now nobody knows what “Solar Power” means – is it an album, is it a single – we have no idea, but that’s not going to stop anyone from freaking out. After all, this is Lorde’s first announcement since she went on a hiatus after going on tour in 2018.
The Lorde has risen! 🙏 After four years of no new releases, Grammy award-winning singer Lorde teased a new single titled “Solar Power."

In fact, some fans have even managed to decode the announcement and provide their own evidence and theories about what “Solar Power” is. Apparently, it’s going to be a single from the 24-year-old’s third studio album.

While no one can verify how true this prediction is, everyone is fully prepared for the return of Lorde. Given how it has been a good four years since the release of her second studio album Melodrama in 2017, we really do need new music, so thank Lorde for blessing us!
