Since the single’s release, she has confirmed that it will serve as the lead single and title track of her long-awaited third studio album ‘Solar Power’. The album will be released on 20th August 2021.
“The album is a celebration of the natural world, an attempt at immortalizing the deep, transcendent feelings I have when I’m outdoors,” Lorde said of ‘Solar Power’. “In times of heartache, grief, deep love, or confusion, I look to the natural world for answers. I’ve learned to breathe out, and tune in. This is what came through.”

It will begin on 26th February 2022 in New Zealand, before travelling across Australia, North America, Canada, the UK and Europe. It will conclude on 23rd June 2022 in Germany.
