Following up on her under-the-radar pop anthems 'Under Stars' in late-2014 and 'Runaway' earlier this year, Norway's AURORA has announced the release of her debut EP early next month.
The Running With The Wolves EP will be out May 4th, preceded here by the release of the title track single which you can listen to below. The 18 year old has released just four tracks thus far, but continues to wow with a sophisticated style and fully-formed vocal style well beyond her years.
Judging by the 200,000-plus plays on this track (which has only been live for the past ten days) she shows no signs of slowing down – both in terms of critical acclaim and vision.
Running With The Wolves is out May 4th on Decca Records, and available to stream now on Spotify.
The singer had this to say about the title track:
The song is about having the animal instinct inside you come to life. Running with them, joining them - the instinct taking over, giving you freedom and making you forget about your human self and all things we humans keep around us in the modern society.
I think humans need to let go a bit more, shake their bodies more often, like the animals do. It's a beautiful thing really. Sometimes when you look at the world, and you see what we've done to it, the way many of us hurt the world we live in, innocent animals, even our own kind! And that kind of makes you want to follow the wolves instead. At least for one night.
