Hot on the heels of the release of her new single ‘Solar Power’, New Zealand superstar Lorde has announced an Australian tour.
Not only that, but she’s also confirmed that her new album ‘Solar Power’ will be released in August.
To the tour firstly, which will kick off over in New Zealand in late February before making its way over the ditch.
Four Australian dates are locked into the schedule; one each in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth.
It’s Brisbane that will kick off the run of Aussie dates – at Riverstage on Thursday March 10.
A Telstra Plus pre-sale runs for 48 hours from Monday June 28 (different times).
The Frontier Touring pre-sale kicks off at midday local time on Wednesday June 30.
General tickets are on sale from midday local time on Monday July 05.
March 10 : Brisbane (Riverstage)
March 12 : Melbourne (Sidney Myer Music Bowl)
March 15 : Sydney (Aware Super Theatre)
March 19 : Perth (Belvoir Amphitheatre)
Lorde has also confirmed the forthcoming release of the album ‘Solar Power’ in August.
It’s set to comprise 12 songs including the titular lead single.
Given the new LP is a “celebration of the natural world”, ‘Solar Power’ will also be released on a CD alternative.
“I decided early on in the process of making this album that I also wanted to create an environmentally kind, forward-thinking alternative to the CD,” Lorde reveals.
“I wanted this Music Box product to be similar in size, shape and price to a CD, to live alongside it in a retail environment, but be something which stands apart and that’s committed to the evolving nature of a modern album.”
