Lorde’s fans have been basking in the glow of her new single “Solar Power”, and on Friday the New Zealand singer-songwriter Zoomed in for a virtual chat with Zane Lowe for Apple Music’s “New Music Daily”.

During the interview, Lorde told Lowe she was inspired to write “Solar Power” after a day swimming in the ocean while vacationing at Martha’s Vineyard, and only later realized it bore an uncanny similarity to a 30-year-old rock song. “I wrote the song on the piano and then we realized like, this is, it sounds a lot like ‘Loaded,’” Lorde said, referencing the Primal Scream track released in 1990.
