A new Lorde era is well and truly upon us, and from world tour announcements to an upcoming album drop, the New Zealand-based artist has been making her comeback known. And, in the name of keeping her fans fed, the star has just released her latest cut from the upcoming Solar Power album.
An ode to the world’s current obsession with all things spiritual, take a trip into Lorde’s ethereal and nature-filled world in the music video for “Mood Ring” – think Midsommar, but wholesome. Donning a blonde wig and draped in a slink pea-green two-piece, fans can enjoy the scenes of their beloved singer embroiled in crystal rituals and sageing away the bad vibes whilst lounging about in a linen tent. And, with the track featuring the heavenly strum of acoustic guitars and Lorde’s other-worldly vocals, the project becomes all the more enchanting.
When speaking on the track, Lorde went on to say, “This is a song I am very excited about, it’s so much fun to me. Obviously, when making this album I did a deep-dive into 60s, Flower Child culture. I wanted to understand the commune life, dropping out from society and trying to start again. That really resonated to me when writing this album. One thing that occurred to me as a major parallel between that time and our time is our wellness culture and our culture of spirituality, pseudo-spirituality, wellness, pseudo-wellness. Things like eating a macro-biotic vegan diet or burning sage, keeping crystals, reading tarot cards or your horoscope. These were all things that they were dabbling in back then, and that me and my girlfriends are dabbling in today.”
With Solar Power shaping up to be the release of the year, brace yourselves for more masterful displays and captivating tracks from Lorde very soon.
