Today we are crushing on the latest single “Heathens” from Norwegian songstress AURORA. Over the past few months, she has teased us with “Giving In To The Love” and smash hit “Cure For Me,” in the leadup to her highly anticipated third album “The Gods We Can Touch” released via Glassnote Records on January 21, 2022, and now she has graced us once again with her soft yet soaring vocals. If you’re yet to be introduced to AURORA, prepare to fall deeply in love with this ethereal being.
Speaking about the single, AURORA has explained, “I have said previously that I sometimes find myself in a tense relationship with religion. With this I never mean the power and divine beauty of religion. Or how people out there choose to practice our religion ourselves, as individual beings. I admire it. And see a lot of beauty in it. But the exchange of power frightens me. Who has power. Who’s voice matters. Who speaks the truth, and who I worthy or forgiveness. Sometimes we are set free by its power. And sometimes the opposite. And I guess I wanted to write a song about something dangerous, something beautiful and something free. Very human indeed.”
The Norwegian songstress is truly showcasing her remarkable versatility as an artist with these fresh pop anthems one after another, an incredible follow up to her recent hit single “Giving In To The Love” and another taste of what’s to come with her fourth album release “The Gods We Can Touch” via Glassnote Records! We couldn’t be more excited to hear what's next!
