On the beach
gives the universe in which the New Zealand artist wishes to take us in his third LP: jam-style acoustic guitars by the fireside, aerial voices and outro choirs (in which we find the voices of artists Phoebe Bridgers and Clairo) coming to release all the energy of the song.

Lorde is dressed in a yellow dress with golden reflections, she takes us to a bohemian beach party.
In an email sent to her fans at the time of the single's release, Lorde describes the character in her song: “There's someone I want you to meet.
Her feet are still bare.
She is sexy, playful, wild and free.
She's a modern girl in a shell bikini, in touch with her past and her future, who vibrates at the highest level when summer arrives.
Her skin is radiant, her lovers are numerous.
“The album is a celebration of the natural world, an attempt to capture the deep and transcendent feelings I experience when I am outdoors.
A solar album
The message has passed: the album will be solar.
A spirit that contrasts with the sadness that usually inhabits the singer's albums.
The release of the single
Solar Power also
coincides with the solar eclipse which took place this Thursday, June 10 in the northern hemisphere.
A few days ago, Lorde teased his return by posting a photograph on his site.

Her body hid the sun… like the moon hiding the sun.
