Lorde sings of tarot readings, crystals, and ‘pseudo-spirituality’ on new track ‘Mood Ring’

Lorde is back with “Mood Ring,” the latest single from her forthcoming album, Solar Power, out this Friday, August 20th.

“Mood Ring” sees Lorde truly diving into a dreamy sound while commenting on pseudo-spirituality and pseudo-wellness. The epic new video shows Lorde as you’ve never seen her. Donning a blond wig, Lorde grapples with her spirituality and nature with a group of friends in this clip.

“This is a song I am very excited about, it’s so much fun to me,” Lorde says. “Obviously when making this album I did a deep-dive into 60s, Flower Child culture. I wanted to understand that commune life, dropping out from society and trying to start again. That really resonated to me when writing this album. One thing that occured 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.”

Watch the video for “Mood Ring” below.

“Things like eating a macro-biotic vegan diet or burning sage, keeping crystals, reading tarot cards or your horoscope,” Lorde continues. “These were all things that they were dabbling in back then, and that me and my girlfriends are dabbling in today. 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.”

“Mood Ring” follows previously released singles “Stoned At The Nail Salon” and “Solar Power.”
