Norwegian singer and songwriter AURORA has released her new single “Heathens,” a song which she said ‘holds a special place in my heart.’
Born in Stavanger, Aurora wrote her first songs and learned dance at the age of six. After some of her songs were uploaded on the Internet and became popular in Norway, she signed a recording contract with Decca and Glassnote Records in 2014.
Aurora released five compilation EPs in celebration of her song “Runaway” in early 2021. It received over 100 million streams on Spotify: For the Humans Who Take Long Walks in the Forest, Music for the Free Spirits, Stories, For The Metal People and Music for the Fellow Witches Out There throughout February.
On 7 July 2021, Aurora released the single “Cure for Me” as the lead single for the forthcoming album. On 14 October, “Giving In To the Love” was released as the album’s third single, and The Gods We Can Touch was announced for release on 21 January 2022.
