Lorde Reacts to 'Solar Power' Leaking Early: 'Kids Are Insane, I Love It'

Lorde is not bothered by the slightly botched rollout of her comeback single, “Solar Power”!

The 24-year-old singer-songwriter sat down with Apple Music and joined Zane Lowe on New Music Daily on Apple Music 1 to discuss her comeback.

During the conversation, she addressed the fact that the song surfaced on the Internet hours before it was supposed to arrive.

“I mean, listen I love it. Kids are insane. I love it. I respect it. I love how hungry they are. Tonight is the solar eclipse, you know, you got to follow the vibes,” she explained.

Lorde also explained the origins of the song!

“I was on Martha’s Vineyard with my good friend, Cazzie staying at her house. We had just been for a big swim all day. My hair was wet and when I came back into my room, I had made a little Yamaha DX keyboard, and I just started singing and kind of figuring this thing out,” she said.

“I was like, what is this? It almost felt like a ‘Rock DJ’ to me the Robbie Williams song. I was like, I don’t know what’s going on here, but I love it. And then I just put it away and like had a paddle board, I think, but it really was such a natural, like joyful extension of an awesome day. And then I think I took it back into, into the city to Jack [Antonoff]‘s and, you know, we had all the windows open. It was summer. And when we just followed it through. I sampled cicadas on my phone for the last few summers. I was like, it has to have the cicadas in it. I really wanted to capture there’s something so specific about the New Zealand summer.”

She also revealed the inspiration behind the song.

“I had never heard Primal Scream in my life. I’d been told to check them out. I wrote the song on the piano and then we realized like, this is, it sounds a lot like ‘Loaded’. It’s just one of those crazy things that like, they just were the spiritual forebears of the song. I reached out to Bobby [Gillespie] and he was so lovely about it. And he was like, you know, these things happen. You caught a vibe that we caught years ago. And he gave us his blessing. So let the record state ‘Loaded’ is 100%, the original blueprint for this, but we arrived at it organically. And I’m glad we did.”
