The singers third studio album, The Gods We Can Touch, is set to arrive next January!
Norwegian alternative pop songstress AURORA has unveiled her sparkling new single, Giving In To The Love. Inspired by Greek mythology, the track explores the weight and differing perceptions of beauty within society.
“I was thinking about Prometheus, and how he stole the fire to sculpt us - the humans. I feel like we sometimes forget that we are living creatures, capable of so many beautiful things. And the human’s current obsession with beauty makes us forget and devalue the fire that rests within us. Our inner self, and most important part.” the singer shares of the track.
Alongside the release arrives the announcement of the singers highly anticipated third studio album, The Gods We Can Touch. Inspired by Greek mythology and set to traverse themes of shame, desire and morality, the fifteen song release is set to introduce listeners to a number of different god who embody each track.
“The spiritual door between the human and the gods is a very complicated thing. In the right hands faith can become the most beautiful thing. Nurturing and warm. And in the wrong hands it can become a beacon of war and death. One thing that has always bothered me is the idea that we’re born unworthy, having to deem ourselves worthy by suppressing the forces within us that make us human. Not perfect, not flawless, just human. Could we find this Divine power in ourselves, while still being attached and seduced to the wonders of the world. The flesh, the fruit and the wine. I think that is what intrigues me about the Greek gods. The gods of the ancient world. Perfectly imperfect. Almost within our reach. Like gods we can touch.” Aurora details.
AURORA rose to prominence in 2015 with the release of her debut album All My Demons Greeting Me as a Friend, following her signing to American label Glassnote. Since then, the singer has released another two records, Infections of a Different Kind (Step I) and A Different Kind of Human (Step II), and featured on the soundtrack to the award winning Disney film Frozen II, which saw her perform the movies lead track, Into The Unknown, on stage, alongside star Idina Menzel, as part of the 92nd Academy Awards.
