Good things come to those who wait, as the old saying goes, and when it comes to the debut album from Norwegian songstress Aurora, things couldn’t get much better…
Having released her mesmerising debut single ‘Awakening’ back in 2014, Bergen native Aurora has spent the past two years touring, performing and perfecting an arsenal of songs that have today been released in the form of her very first album.
All My Demons Greeting Me As A Friend contains her hypnotic previous singles ‘Running With The Wolves’, ‘Conqueror‘ and her fantastic latest release ‘Warrior’, as well a host of favourites from her live set, and a few completely new numbers to boot.
Having been bubbling under the surface for some time, Aurora burst into the public consciousness when she was revealed as the voice to accompany 2015’s iconic John Lewis Christmas advert with an arresting cover of the Oasis track ‘Half The World Away’. Multiple sold out performances, an unforgettable show at the Nobel Peace Prize concert and an armful of awards later, and this striking artist is ready to unleash her carefully crafted debut selection of songs upon the world.
We caught up with Aurora last year to invite her to curate her very own Nordic Playlist, and to reveal more about the making of her album in a candid interview. Watch the conversation below, and listen to Aurora’s carefully selected playlist of favourite artists, chosen especially for her ‘warriors and weirdos’ to discover.
