Wardruna - Present New Single & Video 'Lyfjaberg'

Despite postponing the upcoming full length release Kvitravn to January 2021, Wardruna utilized this time to write and record a brand new song "Lyfjaberg", which is now available for listening below. It will be available on all digital platforms and you can even order a special limited 12" Vinyl.

The band's statement: "When circumstances forced us to postpone the release of our upcoming album Kvitravn, it was clear to us that we still wanted to release new music. Music and art can potentially carry great meaning in times of uncertainty. We decided that now was not the time to stay silent and headed straight back into creative mode and the studio to write and record the song "Lyfjaberg".

"The Old Norse word Lyfjaberg means Healing-hill or Healing-mountain and is known from Norse mythology and the Eddic poem Fjölsvinnsmál as a place of comfort and cure for the "sick and sore" who manage to climb the mountain and bear offerings at the shrines there - a gift demands a gift in return."

Einar Selvik comments: "The song expresses that climbing a tough mountain, both in reality and metaphorically, is a mental as well as a physical effort. I have tried to write this journey up the mountain as one for the mind and spirit as much as the feet and body. Anything of true value, comes at a true cost."

It takes a while to get going but wins me over by the second half. Not my favourite of theirs by any means but nice to get a snippet of what's to come given the lengthy delay
