Wardruna has released a cinematic music video for their new single Kvitravn” which is the title of their forthcoming album, due out on January 22nd, 2021 via By Norse Records. “Kvitravn” (meaning White Raven) show the video from a birds-eye view and features Wardruna founder Einar Selvik and vocalist Lindy Fay-Hella. Watch it now.
Einar Selvik comments:
“I am very excited to finally share this song with you. “Kvitravn” is a song that explores traditions of animal-guides and the symbolism and legends of sacred white animals found in Nordic- and other cultures all over the world. These highly regarded ghostly creatures, whether a raven, snake, bear, moose, reindeer, elephant or lion – are in animist traditions seen as prophetic, divine messengers, and guardians representing renewal, purity and a bridge between worlds.”
“Being fully aware of how rare it is to come across white ravens, we knew from the start that this would be an ambitious and challenging task to pull off. However, fate seemed to be on our side in this and the “impossible” piece of the puzzle fell into place as if gifted from the divine.“
The video for “Kvitravn” was shot in various locations in Norway and Russia, by Ragnarok Film, the same team responsible for the previous Wardruna video, for stand-alone single “Lyfjaberg”, made during lockdown. This track does not appear on the album.
The full album, Kvitravn, is set for worldwide release on January 22nd, 2021, and can be pre ordered in various formats and bundles at wardruna.com
