Lorde took to New York’s Guggenheim International Gala where she performed an acoustic version of “Buzzcut Season” while (…checks notes…) peeling fruit?
The Solar Power artist appeared on the red carpet donning her hair as a scarf. When she took to the stage, Lorde was dressed in gold, as her live band wore white suits. Lorde and co. all peeled fruit during the performance of the track.
Lorde didn’t reveal exactly why she decided to peel fruit, but it’s likely a reference to her Solar Power single, “Fallen Fruit.” In addition to “Buzzcut Season,” Lorde performed “Solar Power,” “Fallen Fruit,” “Green Light,” and “Leader of a New Regime.”
Watch Lorde’s performance of “Buzzcut Season” at the Guggenheim International Gala.

Solar Power was released back in august. The album marked the follow-up to 2017’s Melodrama. Produced by Jack Antonoff, the record sees Lorde singing of young adulthood and fame. Moving from the gloomy, melancholic sounds of her previous releases, Lorde is ready to embrace the sun. Instrumentally, the new album revolves around warm, plucked acoustic guitars and soft percussion
“Buzzcut Season,” however, came from her 2013 debut, Pure Heroine. That album featured singles like “Tennis Court,” “Royals,” and “Team.”
