Since the release Lorde's third album is imminent, I thought I'd make a thread of everything we know so far in one thread. Here we can discuss expectations, what we want to hear from her, what we thin

I spent 3 hours compiling this, don't let it flop 

Omg the single cover

I want this album to be your summer companion, the one you pump on the drive to the beach. The one that lingers on your skin like a tan as the months get cooler again.

I'm feeling this :bradley: I'm officially OBSESSED

She really meant it when she said "And I throw my cellular device in the water
Can you reach me? No, you can't (Aha)" :selena:

21st of June: Summer Solstice

24th of June: Midsummer's Day

21st was the original day for Solar Power's release and the 24th is a Thursday. If the rumors are true (we don't know if they were reliable or not), the lead single and album were supposed to be released on the same week. Sooo we could potentially get another promo single or something on the 21st (Mood Ring maybe) and the album on the 24th or midnight of the 25th (a Friday). Just my own speculations, idk what will happen. 

In an interview she said: 

"Well I cannot give you too much detail right now, but I will say... you'll get it in the next season. It's finished, it's amazing, and it's coming."

Is the next season summer or?? Since it starts on the 21st

Please don’t get my hopes up like this. I don’t know if i can take the disappointment if it doesn’t happen :laughga:

I’m a simple guy to please, if you like Melodrama, we chill.

Can someone drop in a screenshot of the letter Lorde sent to her fans via email about the single and album? I'd love to see it.

Lorde sent us an email!! 

Subject: Hey Cuties! :D

 

You ready?

There’s someone I want you to meet.
Her feet are bare at all times. She’s sexy, playful, feral, and free. She’s a modern girl in a deadstock bikini, in touch with her past and her future, vibrating at the highest level when summer comes around. Her skin is glowing, her lovers are many. I’m completely obsessed with her, and soon you will be too.
 

It’s my divine pleasure to be introducing you, at long last, to my third studio album, SOLAR POWER.

The album is a celebration of the natural world, an attempt at immortalising 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 learnt to breathe out, and tune in. This is what came through.


The first song, also called SOLAR POWER and written and produced by myself and Jack, is the first of the rays. It’s about that infectious, flirtatious summer energy that takes hold of us all, come June (or December, if you’re a Southern Hemisphere baby like me but I know that’s literally IMPOSSIBLE for you all to wrap your little heads around so don’t worry about it!!).


I made everything with friends here in New Zealand. My best mate Ophelia took the cover photo, lying on the sand as I leapt over her, both of us laughing. The director who made my first ever music video, Joel, helped me create the videos, building an entire cinematic universe that I can’t wait for you to see. I made something that encapsulates where I’m from — my family, my girlfriends, my outdoors, my constant ruminations, and my unending search for the divine.

There’s SO much more detail to come — a truly comical amount of detail, honestly. You can look to the natural calendar for clues. I’m trying to listen to what’s out there more, and the vibe I got was that you’re ready for this, that you need it. I want this album to be your summer companion, the one you pump on the drive to the beach. The one that lingers on your skin like a tan as the months get cooler again.


Today’s the only solar eclipse of the year, did you know that? Feels right.

LOVE YOU LOVE YOU LET’S GO
 

SOLAR POWER TODAY — TOMORROW — FOREVER


ELLA XX

I've been trying to look for some but it doesn't seem like there are any good ones online :( Most of them are just screenshots of the MV, which are always blurry and grainy

The critics will eat it up, those looking for quick bops or depression tunes will be disappointed though."
