BERLIN (dpa) – “I hate winter” sings Lorde in “Solar”. It is good that the artist does not live in Germany. Because here on her birthday, November 7th, it’s very dark and cold. In New Zealand, on the other hand, summer begins slowly around this time.

And that’s exactly what “solar energy” means. In the background you can hear cicadas chirping and the sound of the sea. In the music video, the singer, who turns 25 on Sunday, jumps ashore in a lemon yellow two-piece. The single and the corresponding album of the same name, which was released this year, completely broke off from their previous work.
teenage boy with grunge look
When Lorde became world famous in 2013 with the song “Royals” and accompanying debut album “Pure Heroine,” she emerged as a thoughtful teen with a modern grunge aesthetic. The kind of girls who tend to stay in the background at school, always dressed in black, and in German LK impress the whole class with their clever ideas.
The singer, whose real name is Ella Yelich-O’Connor, is the daughter of a poet and is a good reader. In songwriting, for example, you draw inspiration from Shakespeare or from social critical essays. Adults are surprised by Lorde’s maturity, which David Bowie called “the future of music.”
The young woman is filled with awards, including two Grammy Awards. Then it gets quiet about Lorde for now. Her second album, “Melodrama,” will only be released in 2017, followed by “Solar Power” in 2021. She spends the long time between her albums trying out things she can write about next, she says in an interview with Vogue.
Onion rings on Instagram
She also loves to cook in her spare time and has secretly started her own Instagram account via “Onion Rings”. After a three-year hiatus, Lorde is now providing 124,000 subscribers with onion ring reviews.
In an interview with James Corden, she also said that the New York Times’ Kochapp comment columns were the only form of network she allowed herself during her long break from social networking. Abstinence from social media is “the hardest thing I have ever done.”
However, she wants to focus on her work and develop her own views on things rather than being influenced by the opinions of others. For example, a couple of months ago, she released an EP in which she sang five songs from “Solar” back on the Maori. It will be interesting to see what Lord will bring in the future.
