The 24-year-old New Zealand singer-songwriter released her new single just days after announcing her much-anticipated album of the same name. Furthermore, Lorde treated her fans to a surprise launch of the song, which coincided with the solar eclipse in the northern hemisphere.

The two-time Grammy winner has been amping up fans with her cryptic teasers for the new song. Solar Power will stand as Lorde's third studio album following the release of Melodrama in 2017 and 2013s Pure Heroine.

Solar Power was scheduled for a June 2020 release date. However, the song faced a delay due to the sudden death of Lorde's pet dog Pearl in November 2019. The singer described her grief, saying,

"A light that was turned on for me has gone out. The bright energy I was trying to communicate to you has gone, for now."

Lorde can now promote her new album as per her interview with Australian Youth Radio, Triple J. She disclosed that her forthcoming album is light, playful, and fun. As heard in the 3-minute song, the track is peppy in its sound and is a sharp turn from the singer's sound.

Helping her write the titular track was Jack Antonoff, who helped her produce Melodrama. Moreover, Phoebe Bridgers and Clairo joined in for backing vocals to assist the star sing about a good day on the beach.
