Lorde is back!

Lorde’s third album, Solar Power, will be released on June 20. She picked the date because it’s the day of the summer solstice in the Northern Hemisphere.

PEOPLE reports; in a newsletter written to her fans, Lorde wrote, “The album is a celebration of the natural world, an attempt at immortalizing the deep, transcendent feelings I have when I’m outdoors,” she continued. “In times of heartache, grief, deep love, or confusion, I look to the natural world for answers. I’ve learnt to breathe out, and tune in. This is what came through.”

Check out Lorde’s music video for Solar Power, the title track for her new album.

Also in her newsletter to fans, Lorde explained the vibe of her new album saying, “It’s about that infectious, flirtatious summer energy that takes hold of us all, come June (or December, if you’re a Southern Hemisphere baby like me but I know that’s literally IMPOSSIBLE for you all to wrap your little heads around so don’t worry about it!!).”

We’re liking the first of what we’ve heard. Can’t wait to hear the rest of it on June 20!
