Lorde reveals release date and tracklist for new album ‘Solar Power’


Lorde has revealed the release date and tracklist for her much anticipated third studio album, ‘Solar Power’.

After months of teasing her return, the New Zealand singer-songwriter shared her new single ‘Solar Polar’ earlier this month, which is her first new material since 2017’s ‘Melodrama‘.

In a five-star review, NME‘s Rhian Daly called the new song, which features backup vocals from Phoebe Bridgers and Clairo, “a sun-kissed ode to starting anew and doing it in one of the best places for it – soaking up the rays on a glorious beach.”

Following its release, Lorde teased the release of her upcoming third album, which shares the same name as the lead single, by sharing a video titled “Every perfect summer’s gotta take its flight”.

The clip features wide aerial shots of a crop circle and a beach formation that both spell out the letters “SP” – the initials of ‘Solar Power’, which is also the title of her next album.

Tonight (June 21), Lorde announced that ‘Solar Power’ will arrive August 20, and shared the album’s tracklist. You can see it below.

01. ‘The Path’
02. ‘Solar Power’
03. ‘California’
04. ‘Stoned At The Nail Salon’
05. ‘Fallen Fruit’
06. ‘Secrets From A Girl (Who’s Seen It All)’
07. ‘The Man With The Axe’
08. ‘Dominoes’
09. ‘Big Star’
10. ‘Leader Of A New Regime’
11. ‘Mood Ring’
12. ‘Oceanic Feeling’

You can pre-order, pre-save, and pre-add the album here.

“The album is a celebration of the natural world, an attempt at immortalizing the deep, transcendent feelings I have when I’m outdoors,” Lorde said of the album. “In times of heartache, grief, deep love, or confusion, I look to the natural world for answers. I’ve learned to breathe out, and tune in. This is what came through.”

To honour the natural world the artist is presenting the album in a first-of-its kind, discless format. An eco-conscious Music Box will be available for purchase as an alternative to a CD. This innovative offering will contain extra visual content, handwritten notes, exclusive photos, and a download card. The card will give purchasers a high-quality download of the music, two exclusive bonus tracks, and access to some special surprises along the way.

When talking about the concept Lorde said: “I decided early on in the process of making this album that I also wanted to create an environmentally kind, forward-thinking alternative to the CD.

“I wanted this Music Box product to be similar in size, shape and price to a CD, to live alongside it in a retail environment, but be something which stands apart and that’s committed to the evolving nature of a modern album.”



El lunes, Ariana Grande lanzó una serie de videos de presentaciones en vivo en asociación con Vevo construida alrededor de las canciones de su último álbum, Positions.

El primer video, de su canción “POV”, muestra a Grande cantando frente a un solo foco en un campo de flores. Después de la introducción, Grande está iluminada por un enorme anillo de luz púrpura que la mira a ella y a su banda.

«Estamos muy emocionados de lanzar estas actuaciones de video exclusivas para los fanáticos de Ariana», dijo JP Evangelista, vicepresidente senior de contenido, programación y marketing de Vevo, en un comunicado. “Hemos amado la música de Ariana durante años, y ha sido un privilegio ver crecer y evolucionar su arte. Un artista inmensamente creativo y colaborativo es clave para estas actuaciones visualmente deslumbrantes y Ariana encarna eso: sus esfuerzos se traducen maravillosamente en la pantalla. Esperamos verla seguir floreciendo y esperamos que todos disfruten viéndolos «.

Grande lanzó  Positions en octubre pasado, después de Sweetener de 2018  y Thank U, Next de 2019  . The Weeknd eligió a Grande para un  remix de «Save Your Tears»,  un corte de su cuarto álbum de estudio  After Hours , en abril, y los dos artistas interpretaron la canción en vivo en los iHeartRadio Music Awards. La canción marcó la tercera colaboración de la pareja después de «Off the Table» de 2020 de Grande’s Positions  y «Love Me Harder» de 2014 de Grande’s  My Everything.

Drake Confirms New Album Will Drop Before the End of Summer


After an unusually long album hiatus, it appears Drake is looking to return to take over the summer of 2021.

On Saturday night (June 12), Drake made a guest appearance at Ultimate Rap League’s N.O.M.E. XI battle rap event to show support by putting down $50,000 for the winner. Following his stage appearance, Drizzy sat down for an interview on the live streaming app, Caffeine, with battle rap maven Nunu Nellz and battle rapper Tsu Surf, where Drake revealed his new Certified Lover Boy album will be dropping in the next few months.

Drizzy let the cat out of the bag while discussing the Murda Mook and Reed Dollaz match-up that is slated to go down at the Summer Madness event sometime at the end of the summer. Drake said he wanted to return to witness it in person. «I’ll be there. My album will be out by then,» Drake confirmed.

CLB was announced to be dropping in January. Drake later admitted he may get some push back from some people on the project. «They hated on , just like they will CLB but it’s music to evolve to,» he said last November.

At the end of January, he delayed the album’s release, citing a number of reasons. «I was planning to release my album this month but between surgery and rehab my energy has been dedicated to recovery,» Drake wrote in a post on his IG story. «I’m blessed to be back on my feet feeling great and focused on the album, but CLB won’t be dropping in January. I’m looking forward to sharing it with you all in 2021.»

That is not to say Drizzy has kept his fans without new chune. In March, he dropped Scary Hours 2 tracks including «What’s Next,» «Lemon Pepper Freestyle» featuring frequent collaborator Rick Ross and «Wants and Needs» featuring Lil Baby.
