After a four year hiatus, Lorde is back with a much anticipated new album and tour.
The 24 year old New Zealand native Ella Yelich O'Connor launched into fame with her 2013 single "Royals" at the age of 16. In 2017, she released her sophomore album, Melodrama, to critical acclaim, featuring singles such as "Green Light" and "Liability."
In early June 2021, she leaked her single Solar Power, the namesake of her new album. The track is about escaping seasonal depression as the weather heats up and the days become longer, with memorable lyrics such as "I'm kinda like a prettier Jesus."
On June 21st, Lorde announced the release date of her third album to be August 20, 2021, with a 12 title track list. She also plans to tour starting in February 2022, starting in New Zealand, then traveling to the USA and Canada before hitting the UK and Europe in the summer.
As an eco-conscious alternative to a CD, the album will come with a "music box" containing a download key to the songs along with handwritten notes and exclusive images. Concept wise, the album is about Lorde's deep spiritual connection with the outdoors and the environment.

The event will provide viewers with a front row seat and backstage access to performances from Miley Cyrus, Little Big Town, Maren Morris, and many more. Check out the exclusive music video for "My Heart Beats For Love" in the video above.
Cyrus was very excited to take the lead in this concert as she is a member of the LGBTQ+ community and wanted to properly represent the community on stage.
The hour-long concert was filmed in Nashville and is supported by GLAAD. GLAAD is an organization that focuses on entertainment, news, and digital media to forward LGBTQ+ stories. The organization has done amazing work for decades and Cyrus was excited to meet with Anthony Allen Ramos, GLAAD's Head of Talent, to explain what this concert meant to her.
"My vision for the STAND BY YOU concert special was to really reflect the LGBTQ community on the stage. It was my honor, it was my privilege to stand there and to represent an entire community, and I wanted to make sure I served it justice, which is what we demand!"

James Michael Tyler, the 59 year old actor best known for playing Gunther, the quirky manager of the proverbial coffee shop 'Central Perk' from Friends, revealed a stage four diagnosis of prostate cancer on the Today Show on June 21st.
Because prostate cancer is 99% treatable once caught early, Tyler urges the public to be cautious of any changes in their body and to check up with their doctors regularly, raising awareness of prostate screenings that can help save lives.
When asked what he would have done differently, Tyler responded "I would have listened to my wonderful wife, who has been my absolute strength throughout all of this," while shedding tears.
Tyler's legacy for making people laugh and bringing joy into their lives will always live on.
