Lorde Drops Video For ‘The Path’, Opens Up About ‘Confounding’ Year
Lorde dropped the music video for her latest single, “The Path” on Tuesday (June 21st).
She shared the video in a newsletter to fans, writing, “On the occasion of the solstice, I wanted to share a sixth video with you, for THE PATH. This video is the first chapter in the mystical Solar Power story, a prequel to the title video. You see my character joining her friends and family on the island where they’ve chosen to start life anew, arriving in her trademark suit and quickly being transformed by nature’s strange magic.”
The video’s debut comes a year after Lorde announced the release of Solar Power. She explained, “I can honestly say it has been the year with the highest highs and lowest lows I think I’ve ever experienced. It took people awhile to get the album — I still get emails every day from people who are just coming around to it now! — and that response was really confounding and at times painful to sit with at first.”
Solar Power debuted last summer at No. 5 on the Billboard 200 albums chart.
