Update his Instagram page reading “The themes are always the same, a return to innocence, the mysteries of blood, an itch for the transcendent,” was the perfect precursor to Lorde’s next installment.
The second single of 12 tracks off Solar energy, released on August 20, “Stoned at the Nail Salon” finds Lorde in a more vulnerable and nostalgic state compared to her previous Primal Scream-tinged single, singing Because all the music that you loved at sixteen, you’ll grow up And whenever they change, everything will come back … Spend all the evenings you can with the people who raised you Because every time they will change, everything will come, and supported by Phoebe Bridgers, Clairo and Jack Antonoff, who produced the album.
“That’s about all Jack … [he] just start playing it all, playing bass, playing nice guitar, then I arranged all the vocals, ”Lorde says Zane Lowe during an interview on Apple Music. “It’s definitely one of the quietest, most introspective, and most internal moments on the record.”
She added: “It’s about the passing of time, which is a weird thing to think about and be in conversation. But thinking of me at 16, my aging parents, all those big, heavy things that really confront my mortality, I break up when I think about this song, but I’m proud of it.
While “Solar Power” has fused the most natural elements, beach, lightness and sun, as focal points, “Stoned at the Nail Salon” is a weaker vortex, where Lorde has found a “dumping ground” for her. many thoughts.
“This song is kind of a rumination about getting old, settling into domestic life and wondering if you’ve made the right decisions,” Lorde said in a statement. “I think a lot of people are starting to ask these questions at my age, and it was very heartwarming for me to write them down, hoping they would resonate with others as well.”

I have learned to breathe out and tune in. That’s what s. ‘has passed.
Stay true to the natural and enduring theme of Solar energy, the album will be available as The Music Box, an eco-friendly, disc-less format featuring extensive visual content including exclusive photos, handwritten notes and a card to download the album, two bonus tracks, and more.
