Lorde - Solar Power (Lyrics) I hate the winter Can’t stand the cold I tend to cancel all the plans (so sorry, I can’t make it) But when the heat comes Something takes a hold Can I kick it? Yeah, I can My cheeks in high colour, overripe peaches No shirt, no shoes, only my features My boy behind me, he’s taking pictures Lead the boys and girls onto the beaches Come one, come all, I’ll tell you my secrets I’m kinda like a prettier Jesus Forget all of the tears that you’ve cried, it’s over (over, over, over) It’s a new state of mind — are you coming, my baby? Acid green, aquamarine The girls are dancing in the sand And I throw my cellular device in the water Can you reach me? No, you can’t Turn it on in a new kind of bright, it’s solar (solar, solar, solar) Come on and let the bliss begin Blink three times when you feel it kickin’ in That solar power

Ella Marija Lani Yelich-O’Connor (born 7 November 1996), known professionally as Lorde (/lɔːrd/ LORD), is a New Zealand singer-songwriter. Taking inspiration from aristocracy for her stage name, she is known for employing unconventional musical styles and introspective songwriting. Lorde’s music is primarily electropop and contains elements of subgenres such as dream pop and indie-electro.
Born in the Auckland suburb of Takapuna and raised in neighbouring Devonport, Lorde expressed interest in performing at local venues in her early teens. She signed with Universal Music Group (UMG) in 2009 and collaborated with producer Joel Little in 2011 to start recording material. Initially self-released in 2012 for free download on SoundCloud, UMG commercially released the pair’s first collaborative effort, an extended play (EP) titled The Love Club, in 2013. The EP’s international chart-topping single “Royals” helped Lorde rise to prominence.
Her debut studio album Pure Heroine was released that same year to critical and commercial success. The following year, Lorde curated the soundtrack for the 2014 film The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 and recorded several tracks, including the single “Yellow Flicker Beat”. Her second studio album Melodrama (2017) received widespread critical acclaim and debuted atop the US Billboard 200.
Lorde’s accolades include two Grammy Awards, two Brit Awards, and a Golden Globe nomination. She appeared in Time‘s list of the most influential teenagers in 2013 and 2014, and the 2014 edition of Forbes 30 Under 30. In addition to her solo work, she has co-written songs for other artists, including Broods and Bleachers. As of June 2017, Lorde has sold over five million albums worldwide.
