The wait is over: On Thursday evening, timed with the solar eclipse, Lorde released her new single “Solar Power” with a music video and announced her highly anticipated third album of the same name.

Her first new music since 2017, “Solar Power” is a track co-written and co-produced with Jack Antonoff that sounds tailor-made for lounging on the beach.
