According to the singer, the 12-track album, produced by Jack Antonoff, is inended to be “a celebration of the natural world, an attempt at immortalizing the deep, transcendent feelings I have when I’m outdoors.”

She continued, “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.”

In honor of Lorde's appreciation for the “natural world,” Solar Power will be released as an “eco-conscious Music Box” rather than a CD. According to a press release, this unique offering will contain extra visual content, handwritten notes, exclusive photos, and a download card that will give purchasers a high-quality download of the music, two exclusive bonus tracks, and access to some special surprises along the way.
