NEW MUSIC: LORDE | MOOD RING
Lorde has released a new song alongside a music video for "Mood Ring" from her upcoming third studio album, "Solar Power." The New Zealand singer looks like we've never seen her before in the video: Her signature thick, dark curls are now shine-glossed and platinum blonde. The change is shocking at first, but once you get used to it, the bright-blonde hair complements the calming ethereal-goddess vibe of the "Mood Ring" lyrics and the accompanying video, set inside a sun-drenched glamping tent and featuring Lorde cleansing the air with a bundle of sage. Like her previous offerings from the LP, “Mood Ring” is a mellow acoustic track with only the faintest hint of percussion.
Lorde previously released the title track and “Stoned at the Nail Salon” from "Solar Power," which arrives August 20th. Produced by Jack Antonoff, the album follows her 2017 sophomore record "Melodrama." Lorde kicks off the North American leg of her Solar Power world tour on April 3rd, 2022, at the Opry House in Nashville, Tennessee; the tour runs through May 7th with a final show at the Santa Barbara Bowl in Santa Barbara, California. Elsewhere, the singer recently appeared on a day-drinking segment of" Late Night With Seth Meyers" and demolished a plate of fiery chicken wings while speaking eloquently about her music on "Hot Ones."
