Lorde releases new single, Mood Ring

By | Published on Wednesday 18 August 2021


Ahead of the release of her new album ‘Solar Power’ this Friday, Lorde has released “extremely satirical” new single ‘Mood Ring’.

“This is a song I am very excited about, it’s so much fun to me”, she says. “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”, she goes on. “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”, she concludes. “I was like ‘I think there’s a pop song in here’. So this is kind of my extremely satirical look at all of those vibes”.
