On 15 July 2021, Lorde debuted "Solar Power" live on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

In an email sent to fans on July 30, 2021, Lorde wrote they had plans to "do a handful of songs" for the performance, "but the fine warm day became a large storm, and we got through one take of Solar Power and had to tap out for fear of electrocution."

Lyrics

I hate the winter, can't stand the cold
I tend to cancel all the plans (I'm so sorry, I can't make it)
But when the heat comes
Something takes a hold
Can I kick it? Yeah, I can

My cheeks in high colour, overripe peaches
No shirt, no shoes, only my features
My boy behind me, he's taking pictures
Lead the boys and girls onto the beaches
Come one, come all, I'll tell you my secrets
I'm kinda like a prettier Jesus

Forget all of the tears that you've cried
It's over (Over, over, over)
It's a new state of mind
Are you coming, my baby?

Acid green, aquamarine
The girls are dancing in the sand
And I throw my cellular device in the water
Can you reach me? No, you can't (Haha)

My cheeks in high colour, overripe peaches
No shirt, no shoes, only my features
My boy behind me, he's taking pictures (He's taking pictures)
Lead the boys and girls onto the beaches
Come one, come all, I'll tell you my secrets
I'm kinda like a prettier Jesus

Turn it on in a new kind of bright
It's solar (Solar, solar, solar)
Come on and let the bliss begin
Blink three times when you feel it kicking in

That solar power, oh that power
Solar power, oh that power
Solar power, oh that power
Solar power, oh that power
Solar power, oh that power
Solar power, oh that power
