The clip, titled “Every perfect summer’s gotta take its flight”, 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.

“I had never heard Primal Scream in my life. I’d been told to check them out,” she said. “I wrote the song on the piano and then we realised it sounds a lot like ‘Loaded’. It’s just one of those crazy things that they just were the spiritual forebears of the song.”
While Lorde has not confirmed a release date for the album, she has said ‘Solar Power’ will arrive “soon”.
In a message to fans, she further opened up on her inspiration behind the record: “The album is a celebration of the natural world, an attempt at immortalising the deep, transcendent feelings I have when I’m outdoors. 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.”
