Lorde Details 'Solar Power' Album, Plots Canadian Dates on 2022 World Tour
Yep, that's indeed the album cover
Published Jun 21, 2021Lorde has finally detailed her upcoming record Solar Power, and yes, that's indeed the album cover.
Solar Power will arrive on August 20, and to go along with the album, Lorde has mapped up a massive 2022 world tour.
Marking her first North American dates since 2018, the trek will start its run on the continent in Nashville on April 3 at the Opry House. From there, Lorde will play several U.S. dates, as well as make Canadian stops in Montreal on April 7 and Toronto on April 8.
You can see the full schedule below, where you'll also find the 12-song tracklist for Solar Power. Tickets go on sale Friday (June 25) at 10 a.m. local time.
Solar Power marks the follow-up to 2017's Melodrama. In a statement, Lorde had this to say of her upcoming record: "The album is a celebration of the natural world, an attempt at immortalizing the deep, transcendent feelings I have when I'm outdoors. 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."
A press release also explains that as an alternative to a CD release, Lorde is releasing an "eco-conscious Music Box." As the PR explains, "This innovative offering will contain extra visual content, handwritten notes, exclusive photos, and a download card. The card will give purchasers a high-quality download of the music, two exclusive bonus tracks, and access to some special surprises along the way."
Of the novel release, Lorde said: "I decided early on in the process of making this album that I also wanted to create an environmentally kind, 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 which stands apart and that's committed to the evolving nature of a modern album."
So far, "Solar Power" is the only track Lorde has shared from the album.
