Lorde has released a peaceful new music video for ‘Leader of a New Regime’ – scroll down to watch.

The musician shared the new visuals in time for the New Zealand summer solstice, she explained a newsletter announcing the video to fans.

“All day in my brain there’s a secret festival going on,” Lorde wrote of the longest day of the year. “I always try to go outside early in the morning, really take the time to appreciate the longest day, knowing the shortest is gonna take its place sometime soon.”

‘Leader of a New Regime’ features on Lorde’s third album ‘Solar Power’, released this summer with singles ‘Solar Power’, ‘Stoned at the Nail Salon’ and ‘Mood Ring’.

Writing about the new song in her newsletter, Lorde described it as: “Just a couple of bites, a feeling, a perfect midpoint in the SP journey.”

Meanwhile, Lorde was confirmed as one of three headliners at the inaugural Primavera Los Angeles festival next September.

She’ll be joining Arctic Monkeys and Nine Inch Nails to top the bill at the festival, taking place from September 12-18, 2022 at the LA State Historic Park.

Also on the bill are Arca, Boy Harsher, Chai, Drain Gang (Bladee, Ecco2k, and Thaiboy Digital), Dry Cleaning, Faye Webster, James Blake, Kim Gordon, King Krule, Low, Mitski, Mustafa, PinkPantheress, Special Interest, Stereolab, Tierra Whack, and Tim Hecker.

In a statement on the Primavera Sound website announcing the headliners for the Los Angeles festival at the time, the festival company wrote: “Today, at last, we finally begin to cross the bridge that will take us to a new Primavera Sound destination without renouncing to all those values that, after 19 editions, underpin the Barcelona festival.

“Sustainability, gender equality, social commitment and urban integration will guarantee an impact that goes beyond the strictly musical one.”
