Wardruna postpone release of new LP ‘Kvitravn’

Nordic folk band Wardruna have announced the postponement of their new full-length album, ‘Kvitravn,’ which was set for release on June 5th through Norse Music / Sony / Columbia Records. The new release date is now January 22, 2021 (pre-order).

“It is with heavy hearts and great disappointment that we announce that our upcoming album ‘Kvitravn’ will be moved to January 22, 2021,” says founder/composer Einar Selvik. “Closed-down production factories and heavily reduced logistic services due to the COVID-19 situation makes it impossible to go forth with the release as planned. Nobody knows how long this situation will last and therefore we feel it is best to set a realistic date with a higher certainty of us being able to execute the release in the manner needed. On a more positive note, we plan to release a good handful of songs in the time to come before the full album comes out, so stay tuned!”
