Lorde recently shared an “extremely satirical” new single, “Mood Ring,” from her latest album Solar Power.
“Mood Ring” comes along with a new video co-directed by Lorde and Joel Kefali, and is a follow-up to previously released singles “Stoned at the Nail Salon” and “Solar Power.”
“Mood Ring” was written and produced by Lorde and Jack Antonoff and also features background vocals from Phoebe Bridgers and Clairo.
“This is a song I am very excited about, it’s so much fun to me. Obviously when making this album I did a deep-dive into ’60s, Flower Child culture. I wanted to understand the commune life, dropping out from society and trying to start again,” Lorde said in a statement. “That really resonated to me when writing this album. One thing that occurred to me as a major parallel between that time and our time is our wellness culture and our culture of spirituality, pseudo-spirituality, wellness, pseudo-wellness.”
“Things like eating a macro-biotic vegan diet or burning sage, keeping crystals, reading tarot cards or your horoscope. These were all things that they were dabbling in back then, and that me and my girlfriends are dabbling in today,” she added. “I was like ‘I think there’s a pop song in here.’ So this is kind of my extremely satirical look at all of those vibes.”
Solar Power, Lorde’s third studio album and a follow-up to 2017’s Melodrama, dropped on Friday, August 20.
