On June 7th, Lorde finally revealed to fans via her website that new music was coming after a long four-year wait. The revealing picture shows the singer from a ground-up angle without pants and frolicking in the sun. Just above her read the words “Solar Power.”
Lorde also added the text “Arriving in 2021 … Patience is a virtue.” Is she teasing at a new single, or a new album entirely? I guess we’ll just have to have a little… patience.
Lorde first broke out big with the song “Royals.” She was just 16-years-old at the time and became an instant superstar. At the 56th Annual Grammy Awards, she won “Song of the Year” and “Best Pop Solo Performance.” With so much sudden and overwhelming success, she took time to herself, waiting four years before releasing her sophomore album, Melodrama.
Now, after another four years of waiting, we should be rewarded with another stunning work of art. Are you excited or new Lorde music?

Not only is Freddie Fiction a character of many faces, but for his newest single, ‘Lie To Me,’ he pulls off the unimaginable. What seems to be an over a three-minute-long breath-taking visual assemblage was a once-in-a-lifetime adventure in the Himalayas.
‘Lie To Me’ is the newest addition to Fiction’s efforts to produce stellar records and address societal issues, such as his first single, ‘Just Let Me Breathe,’ released in December 2020, focused on the Black Lives Matter movement. The following release, ‘Avenger,’ symbolizes a powerful tribute to the strong women in one’s life through superhero metaphors in the lyrics.
Freddie Fiction plays with the upbeat, catchy chorus, featuring an underlying dark sentiment to the track suggesting sometimes it is better to live in denial than face the painful truth. While you can appreciate the signature Freddie Fiction production, the ‘Lie To Me’ music video is the show’s star.
Let’s break it down. With Freddie Fiction, you know you are bound to receive high-quality lyricism and a thought-out video script. But ‘Lie To Me’ exceeds everyone’s expectations. For starters, it was filmed on two different continents. In Africa, at sea level, on the sun-drenched beaches of Zanzibar, and in South Asia, 2,800 meters above sea level, on the snowy peaks of the Himalayas. A record for a music video film shoot with the most significant disparity in altitude.
Watch for yourself, and be amazed. ‘Lie To Me’ is out now.
