There are three different versions of Lorde featured in the singer/songwriter‘s new video for “Secrets from a Girl (Who’s Seen It All),” a single from her airy 2021 album, Solar Power.

Imparting wisdom to a pair of her younger selves, the video’s conceit brings Lorde back to the beach that was featured in the video for the album’s title track — and having multiple Lordes on camera together leads to some impressive editing and choreography. Musically, the song features Swedish pop singer/songwriter Robyn, who delivers some spoken-word in the outro:

Said Lorde of the video’s concept:

“… this song is me in communication with another version of me, trying to send along the wisdom I’ve started to gather along the way. When we were plotting the video, Joel brought up some old film/TV tropes about groupings of women. It inspired me to identify three distinct parts of myself, and imagine what would happen if these parts were able to meet … the Child in her purple lipstick and silver jewelry, big curls thrown over to one side, skipping and bouncing like I did as a six year old; the Lover, a baby woman in red with a little diamanté eye, waking up hungover and divine; and the Gardener, me at my wisest and most crunchy, dressed in my own clothes … I hope you love it.”

“The album is a celebration of the natural world, an attempt at immortalizing the deep, transcendent feelings I have when I’m outdoors,” said the artist in a statement. “In times of heartache, grief, deep love, or confusion, I look to the natural world for answers. I’ve learned to breathe out, and tune in. This is what came through.”
