Lorde returned with her first new music in four years, "Solar Power," earlier this month, and she's now announced that it's the title track of her new album, Solar Power, due out on August 20. "The album is a celebration of the natural world, an attempt at immortalizing the deep, transcendent feelings I have when I’m outdoors," she says. "In times of heartache, grief, deep love, or confusion, I look to the natural world for answers. I’ve learned to breathe out, and tune in. This is what came through." See the cover art and tracklisting below.

The album will come out in a "first-of-its kind, discless format," which, according to a press release, is "to honor the natural." It continues:

An eco-conscious Music Box will be available for purchase as an alternative to a CD. This innovative offering will contain extra visual content, handwritten notes, exclusive photos, and a download card. The card will give purchasers a high-quality download of the music, two exclusive bonus tracks, 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 says. "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 that’s committed to the evolving nature of a modern album."

Lorde also announced a tour supporting Solar Power. It starts in February of 2022 in her native New Zealand, and continues to Australia in March and North America beginning in April. In May, she heads to Europe, and dates run through June; see them all below.

There's an NYC show on April 18 at Radio City Music Hall (tickets), and a Los Angeles show on May 5 at Shrine Auditorium (tickets). Tickets to those, and all dates, go on sale Friday, June 25 at 10 AM local time, with presales starting Thursday, June 24 at 10 AM.
