The singer-songwriter has returned with a brand new single right in time for summer, but where was it filmed? Find out here.

Lorde is back with a sizzle on her scorching new Solar Power single.

The track might sound like a pop-infused beach bop at first glance, but it pulls from all kinds of influences with sounds reminiscent of The Stone Roses and Primal Scream.

And the references don't stop there. Lorde sings in the opening lyrics: "I hate the winter/Can't stand the cold/I tend to cancel all the plans/When the heat comes/Something takes a hold."

She then adds in a nod to A Tribe Called Quest: "Can I kick it?/Yeah, I can."
