Wardruna announce the title track, Kvitravn (White Raven), of their upcoming album today! The full album, Kvitravn, is set for worldwide release on January 22nd, 2021 and can be pre ordered in various formats and bundles at www.wardruna.com
On Kvitravn, bandleader Einar Selvik states, “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.”
The video for Kvitravn was shot in various locations in Norway and Russia, and was produced by Ragnarok Film, the same team responsible for the previous Wardruna video, for the song “Lyfjaberg.”
Einar Selvik states about the video:
“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.“
Kvitravn is out via Sony Music.
