Forbidden Fruits had been cancelled in 2020 and 2021 due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Earlier this month, headliner Lorde released two new songs, ‘Hold No Grudge’ and ‘Helen of Troy’, dropped from the deluxe version of her latest album, ‘Solar Power’.

Upon its release in August, NME gave ‘Solar Power’ a five-star review, saying with the release of the New Zeland artist’s third studio offering, Lorde had crafted “yet another world-beater”.

“This is an album that grows in quiet stature with every listen, new nuggets of wisdom making their way to the surface.”
