In addition to dropping the new clip, Lorde shared a letter to the fans about his new music in an electronic newsletter. She explained that she had written “Solar Power” with her long-time producer. Jack Antonoff about “the contagious and flirtatious summer energy that takes hold of us all”. She also announced that Solar energy will also be the title of his new album.
