Lorde has taken a 4-year hiatus from putting out music, with her wildly successful sophomore album 'Melodrama' being her last public project.

The alt-pop sensation's site debuted the cover for her apparent next single, 'Solar Power' – the photo features a cheeky display of the singer frolicking on the beach.

Beneath the single artwork, it reads: "Arriving in 2021 ... Patience is a virtue."

Many are already speculating that the new track could be the first single from a third studio album that would follow up her critically acclaimed records, 'Pure Heroine' and 'Melodrama'.

Lorde's longtime friend and collaborator, Jack Antonoff, also took to Instagram to celebrate the news, he did so by reposting the summer-inspired artwork.

Fans were quick to speculate in the comments that Antonoff will most likely feature as a producer on the single and hopefully subsequent album.

The pair have joined forces in the past on iconic tracks such as 'Green Light', 'Liability' and many more.

Fans were already buzzing with excitement after it was announced in May that the New Zealand songstress would headline Primavera Festival in Barcelona in 2022.

The appearance will be Lorde's first scheduled performance in three years – all signs are pointing toward a big comeback from the 24-year-old hit-maker.

Patient stans were sent into a tailspin on Twitter when the exciting news broke, with many posting memes about how their wait is finally over.

We can't wait to hear Lorde's dulcet tones once more!

Fingers crossed for an album this summer...
