On Air With Ryan Seacrest

Weekdays 3pm-7pm

Lorde performs at "Good Morning America's" Summer Concert Series at Rumsey Playfield, Central Park on August 20, 2021 in New York City.

Lorde’s Solar Power released today, after four years since her last album, Melodrama. Inspired by experiences in the sun, Lorde took an environmental approach to the release of her new music — she isn’t going to be selling any physical CD’s, being fully carbon neutral.

Watch the music video for one of the most well-received songs on the album, “Mood Ring” below:

    One user pointed out the song title names reflecting solar power, with “Fallen Fruit” being food insecurity, while “The Man with the Axe” is deforestation, “Dominoes” is continuous environmental degradation, “Big Star” is a waning sun, “Leader of a New Regime” is eco-fascism and “Oceanic Feeling” is the melting icecaps.
