Lorde Hints at New Music During Primavera Sound in L.A.: ‘You’ll Know Sometime Soon’
Lorde teased the possibility of new music during her headlining set at Primavera Sound in Los Angeles on Friday (Sept. 16).
The 25-year-old alt-pop pioneer, who has been touring North America in support of her latest album, 2021’s Solar Power, delighted fans at the Southern California festival after revealing that her next release may be arriving soon.
“Who knows what will come next?” the New Zealand songstress casually stated while running though the themes of past three albums. “Well, I know. You’ll find out .”
She added about her past music, “When I was a teenager it was about not being a teenager, when I was 20 it was about a boy, (and) now it’s about the climate.”
Lorde’s debut album, Pure Heroine, arrived in 2013, bowing at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 albums chart. The set featured the hit song “Royals,” which spent nine weeks atop the Billboard Hot 100 that same year. “Team,” which was also featured on the set, reached the top 10 of the chart.
The singer-songwriter’s 2017 follow-up album, Melodrama, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and last year’s Solar Power started at No. 5.
Lorde also touched on the climate change theme of Solar Power during her gig at Primavera Sound.
“You all felt that heat wave last week,” she said, referencing California’s epic mid-September temperatures, which exceeded 100 degrees in many areas. This is an emergency. Don’t acclimatize to 112-degree weather. This is the most frightening time in our lives. We can only be present to it, vote with the climate and get outside. It’s the best thing .”
