Myrkur Debuts “Ella” Off Of New Album “Folkesange”


Myrkur‘s new album “Folkesange” has been lined up for a March 20th release date on Relapse with the first single, “Ella“, now streaming below. The band’s mastermind Amalie Bruun described this new single as being:

“….The result of years of studying, playing and listening to traditional Nordic folk music. This is my version of a new folk-song, with roots planted in history and in the past. It is my ode to mankind and our connection with nature – a rite of passage as a woman and a rebirth-ritual in the sea.”

She continued:

“Three years ago I decided to share a video where I performed an old Scandinavian folk-song on the nyckelharpa. After this I realized that I had a strong need to create an album within this universe and that other people also wished to hear this. So I started working on picking out what old songs to reinterpret as well as write my own version of this. ‘Ella‘ is this.”

Pre-orders for the eleven-track outing are available now here
