The New Zealand singer premiered her new music video and it is an ode to enjoying life, with the feeling of relaxing on the beach
Lorde gave his fans what they most expected, because after four years without releasing music, he released “Solar Power”, the first single with which he advances his next album. This generated a lot of emotion, but also quite a few memes by having a very hippie music video that seems out of this world.
The 24-year-old New Zealander presents a type of celebration from the beach, because from the first moment of the music video, she looks very happy, wearing a yellow skirt, dancing with a group of people who celebrate together with her being receiving the good energy of the solar power of summer.

Inevitably, this sparked a wave of social media memes, where many found similarities between Lorde’s “Solar Power” video and some scenes from Midsommar’s movie.
On the other hand, several highlighted that the joy of the 24-year-old interpreter had invaded them along with a recharge of energy, not only because of the video, but also because of the lyrics to “Solar Power” by Lorde, where he sings “my cheeks in intense color, overripe peaches, no shirt, no shoes, just my features. Only my boy behind me, is taking photos, He takes the boys and girls to the beaches.”
Lorde’s Solar Power Lyrics
“My cheeks in high colour, overripe peaches
No shirt, no shoes, only my features
My boy behind me, he’s taking pictures (He’s taking pictures)
Lead the boys and girls onto the beaches
Come one, come all, I’ll tell you my secret
I’m kinda like a prettier Jesus” sings Lorde during the chorus of “Solar Power”.
When you think about the lyrics, the following description that Lorde makes through a statement about her new album, it all makes sense. The artist says: “This album is a celebration of the natural world, an attempt to immortalize the deep and transcendent feelings I feel about the outdoors. In times of broken hearts, deep love or confusion, I often look to the natural world for answers. I have learned to breathe and inspire. I want this album to be our summer companion. The one you wear when you drive to the beach. “
“Solar Power” was written by Lorde in collaboration with Jack Antonoff, who usually works with artists like Taylor Swift or Lana del Rey, while it also featured the voices of Phoebe Bridgers and Clairo.
Lorde’s last release was the “Melodrama” album in 2017., where he transmitted a quite different vibe and much more attached to his depressive side, but on “Solar Power” he looks radiant.
