Norwegian multi-instrumentalist Sylvaine will be releasing her fourth studio album, ‘Nova,’ on March 4, 2021! The singer/songwriter has teamed up with Metal Injection to premiere her devastating new single, “Mono No Aware.” The song can be found along with a visualizer at THIS LOCATION [embedded below].
Sylvaine comments on the track: “The moment when you appreciate the beauty of our human existence and what lies within it being completely transient, yet feeling overcome by sadness for the exact same reason, that is ‘Mono No Aware.’ Every Sylvaine record holds one song title that can’t be directly translated into English, and this time I felt the melancholy and depth of the Japanese saying ‘mono no aware’ fit perfectly with the emotions that went into creating this record. Existing somewhere between nostalgia, a yearning for things lost and past times and a respect for the ephemeral nature of things, ‘Mono No Aware’ basically deals with how hard it is to accept that the only constant in our existence is change. Being one of the heaviest tracks I wrote to date, ‘Mono No Aware’ is filled with intensity in every way, pushing the borders of light and dark even further. This song also holds some of my favorite lyrics of the album; ‘You need to fade away, so I can truly see you. Show me the meaning of being alive – Fading, I see you now.’”
The song and album are available for pre-saving on all other digital platforms HERE while the record is available for pre-orders HERE.
