Lorde announces huge Leeds date at O2 Academy

The New Zealand chart-topper is back with a new album

The Kiwi singer will be performing in Leeds as part of her new Solar Power Tour – giving fans the chance to hear her first new music in four years performed live in person.

In 2013, a 16-year-old Lorde quietly, yet confidently asserted herself as the voice of a generation with her full-length debut, Pure Heroine.

The album would go triple-platinum, win two Grammy Awards, and spawn the certified diamond, record-breaking, international juggernaut single, Royals.

Now, the New Zealand chart-topper is back – and she’s planning on coming to Leeds for a special show as part of her new Solar Power Tour.

After first bursting onto the scene as a young woman, the multiplatinum artist recently dropped her latest single Solar Power to huge critical and fan acclaim.

It was the first taste of new music fans had had in four years, and served as the warm up act for the new album of the same name.

At last, she’s finally taking the new songs out on the road – and releasing the Solar Power LP in a completely disc-less format as a tribute to the fragile state of the natural world.

“The album is a celebration of the natural world, an attempt at immortalizing the deep, transcendent feelings I have when I’m outdoors,” said Lorde.

“In times of heartache, grief, deep love, or confusion, I look to the natural world for answers. I’ve learned to breathe out, and tune in. This is what came through.

“The first song, also called SOLAR POWER and written and produced by myself and Jack, is the first of the rays. It’s about that infectious, flirtatious summer energy that takes hold of us all, come June…”

She will be at the Leeds O2 Academy in 2022, May 25th.

Other UK dates include Usher Hall in Edinburgh (May 26th), O2 Victoria Warehouse in Manchester (May 28th) O2 Academy in Birmingham (May 30th) and the Roundhouse in London on June 1st and 2nd.

Tickets go on sale on Friday, June 25th at 10am.
