Lorde has debuted another song from her upcoming album, Solar Power, which is set for release on Aug. 20 and comes with feverish anticipation.

Premiered on Wednesday, “Stoned at the Nail Salon” has a decidedly different feel than the album’s title track, which was the first song released ahead of the record. Here’s the new one:

Said Lorde of the new song:

 “This song is sort of a rumination on getting older, settling into domesticity, and questioning if you’ve made the right decisions. I think lots of people start asking those questions of themselves around my age, and it was super comforting to me writing them down, hoping they’d resonate with others too. I used this song as a dumping ground for so many thoughts…”

Lorde will give the song its live premiere tonight, July 21, during a full-show takeover appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers.

Here’s “Solar Power,” which came with a sun-soaked beach scene music video with vibrant colors and boundless energy:

Since its debut, the music video for the song has earned more than 18 million YouTube views, indicating the feverish interest in anything that is released from the New Zealand-born singer/songwriter, now eight years removed from her breakthrough 2013 single “Royals.”

The Solar Power track listing:

1. The Path
2. Solar Power
3. California
4. Stoned in the Nail Salon
5. Fallen Fruit
6. Secrets From a Girl (Who’s Seen It All)

Interestingly, Lorde isn’t planning to release Solar Power on CD:

To honor the natural world the artist is presenting the album in a first-of-its kind, discless format. An eco-conscious Music Box will be available for purchase as an alternative to a CD. This innovative offering will contain extra visual content, handwritten notes, exclusive photos, and a download card. The card will give purchasers a high-quality download of the music, two exclusive bonus tracks, and access to some special surprises along the way.

When talking about the concept Lorde says, “I decided early on in the process of making this album that I also wanted to create an environmentally kind, forward-thinking alternative to the CD. I wanted this Music Box product to be similar in size, shape and price to a CD, to live alongside it in a retail environment, but be something which stands apart and that’s committed to the evolving nature of a modern album.”
