Lorde's new, long-awaited single just arrived last week with backing vocals provided by Phoebe Bridgers and Clairo, drums by former Pearl Jam member, Matt Chamberlain, and well as production credit going to famed producer Jack Antonoff -- officially brightening the Summer of 2021. Available for pre-order now, the singer told fans in a lengthy email announcement that her team has "made some absolutely sensational vinyls for you guys that you will be able to go and get the day the album comes out," as well as something completely new. "I wanted to make something that symbolised my commitment to asking questions of our systems, and making stuff with intention and sensitivity. I’m calling it a music box," she said. "It’ll be the same size and shape as a CD, and you can buy it where CDs live, but this is something totally different. If you’re torn on which hold-in-your-hands, flip-through-the-pages thing to buy to best enjoy this album, honestly, I’d go for the music box. You’ll know more about this very soon."

As for the tour, Lorde says "this is, thrillingly, something of an INTIMATE TOUR. Theatres and green fields rather than arenas. So you gotta get in there if you really wanna go."
