AURORA already released the music video for her new single ‘The Secret Garden‘ from the upcoming album. She also mentions the inspiration behind her new material for a new album.
AURORA Aksnes is a Norwegian singer and songwriter. After her first single “Awakening” she started to rise and release new singles and albums. Her latest and second album “A Different Kind of Human (Step 2)” out in June 2019.
She recently shared her new single ‘The Secret Garden‘ taken from the soundtrack to Marc Munden‘s film of the same title. This song also a follow-up to her ‘Into The Unknown’ soundtrack from Frozen 2.
During an interview with NME Magazine, AURORA revealed how she wrote this song and what happens for the upcoming album:
“I actually wrote it quite a long time ago, I was quite a little bean back then. I just always felt like this song had quite an imaginative soul. I was a very imaginative child and wrote this song after reading the book The Secret Garden for the first time.
When they asked me to make a song for the movie remake, I was so happy and tried to pitch them this old song. It was so meant to be.
It was always about finding this magical place in this garden, which can also symbolize shelter. The world can be quite harsh and difficult, especially nowadays. It can feel darker than it is. It’s about this magical garden where you’re allowed to grow and nothing is trying to prevent you from just existing and breathing and being healthy.”
She also talks about the upcoming album:
“It’s chapter three of my life, it’s a very new world for me. I’ve gotten to explore some very new things within myself, which just makes it all the more fun. I’m asking questions to everything that made us the way we are now; in our past, in politics, religion, and in weird ways of thought we have created that make no sense – like racism, not being a feminist or burning women for being witches.”
