In the past month, we’ve got everything and more from Lorde! For starters, ‘Solar Power’ dropped on June 10th and it’s been making waves! The track is the perfect mix of sunshine and serenity which is why we’ve had it on repeat. The music video has all the right vibes, from being shot right on a beach, to Lorde’s bright yellow outfit. It’s been over four years since the release of her last album, Melodrama, and we’ve been itching for some new music since.
Lorde’s Third Album
Well Lorde fans, we have some exciting news for you. On her website, Lorde announced the release of her upcoming third studio album, Solar Power! The album will be available on August 20th and can be pre-ordered here. The track-list consists of 12 tracks that we cannot wait to hear. ‘Solar Power’ is the first single she has released from the album so far and hopefully not the last. Lucky for us, we’re already able to get our hands on some Solar Power merch. On Lorde’s official website, we’ve got a few options, including some stunning vinyl records and apparel. But, let’s take a second to talk about the Solar Power Music Box. This box is both biodegradable and disc-less, which makes for a more eco-friendly alternative to a physical CD.
I decided early on in the process of making this album that I also wanted to create an environmentally find, forward-thinking alternative to the CD. I wanted this music box product to be similar in size, shape, and price to a CD, to live alongside it in a retail environment but be something that stands apart — a plastic-free box that contains loads of extra visual content, handwritten notes, exclusive photos, and a download card.
We love this step she’s taking with her dedication to the environment while also providing a unique experience to her fans! Hopefully, more artists take steps like this in order to become more environmentally friendly.
