In a press release, Lorde said of Solar Power: The album is a celebration of the natural world, an attempt at immortalizing the deep, transcendent feelings I have when Im outdoors. In times of heartache, grief, deep love, or confusion, I look to the natural world for answers. Ive learned to breathe out, and tune in. This is what came through.

Lorde has already shared the album’s lead single and title track. The first song, also called ‘Solar Power’ and written and produced by myself and Jack, is the first of the rays. Its about that infectious, flirtatious summer energy that takes hold of us all, come June

According to the press release, Solar Power will be released as a disc-less, eco-conscious Music Box” designed to minimize the carbon footprint of the new album. The Music Box will offer additional visual content, handwritten notes, exclusive photos, and a download card, which will give purchasers a high-quality download of the music, two exclusive bonus songs, and “access to some special surprises along the way.”

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,” Lorde said. “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 thats committed to the evolving nature of a modern album.
