'Te Ao Mārama' features five 'Solar Power' tracks sung in the indigenous language of Lorde's birthplace Aotearoa (aka New Zealand).
The EP features Lorde singing ‘Solar Power’ cuts like its title track, ‘Stoned at the Nail Salon’ and ‘Fallen Fruit’ in the language. All proceeds from the EP, which also features fellow New Zealand musicians Marlon Williams and Bic Runga, will go to NZ-based charities Forest and Bird and Te Hua Kawariki Charitable Trust.
Lorde is one of the most impressive musicians around right now, blazing a trail for women in music and equal representation. Hats off. Via NME
