The “Solar Power” era is over, but Lorde is hard at work on new music after finishing the album with a final music video.
The New Zealand artist surprised fans by releasing the official visuals for the album’s closing track “Oceanic Feeling,” which also happens to be the first anniversary of “Solar Power.”
The “Man With An Axe” songstress revealed in a message to fans obtained by NME that she can’t believe her music era has come to an end.
She also described her daily routine, saying that she has “lived in deference to the season” her entire life because she wakes up every day and the weather outside determines what she will do for the rest of the day.
She felt like summer, which is heavily influenced by her latest album, was a movie playing in the background.
Lorde teased fans about her upcoming music projects, saying she’s been working since her tour ended.
“Spending long days in a dark room, my brain buzzing like a fluorescent tube, eyes watering when I step back into the light”
Lorde may have changed genres and toned down some of her songs during the “Solar Power” era, but she has previously stated that she is close to writing “bangers” once more.
The pop star said on the third and final night of her three-night concert at London’s Roundhouse in June that “big, bright pop song” has defined her life.
Lorde used to turn on the radio and “love that feeling,” and listening to pop bangers became a “addiction to her.”
“I just wanted to keep trying to construct the perfect thing that would hit you in the heart emotionally, over three-and-a-half minutes”
During the concert, the singer noted that it was the ninth anniversary of her debut single “Royals,” which went on to become her most successful single to date and was the only song to win a Grammy.
The “Secrets from a Girl (Who’s Seen It All)” hitmaker thanked her fans, saying she’s grateful to be able to share her fame with them because a “banger” isn’t considered a big deal until the audience participates.
She ended her speech by saying she’s almost finished writing music that her fans will be able to dance to and feel in their hearts.
