Norwegian music group Wardruna have issued an official clip for their single “Kvitravn” which serves as the title-track to the act’s previously postponed new full-length album of the same name.
Regarding the new song/video, the band state:
Kvitravn (White Raven) is the title track from our upcoming album. It´s 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 was shot in various locations in Norway and Russia and was produced by Ragnarok Film – the same team responsible for our previous video for the song “Lyfjaberg”.
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. We hope you will enjoy and give it wings!
Wardruna’s new LP, ‘Kvitravn,’ officially comes out on January 22, 2021 and can be purchased via Wardruna.com.
