WARDRUNA - Working On The New Album

Norwegian folk/ambient/epic act Wardruna is currently intensly working on their new album entitled Yggdrasil. This will be the second part of album trilogy  Runaljod and it will be released in spring 2013 by Indie Recordings. Here's the official statement by Wardruna mainman Einar Kvitrafn Selvik: "A lot has happened since the release of our debut album in 2009. We have been lucky enough to be able to perform at some really special places and interesting festivals. A concert with Wardruna is in my view two-way communication, and meeting our audience has been both overwhelming and very inspiring for us.
Judging from the amount of comments and questions we get at our shows or by e-mail it seems clear to me that it is due time for more Wardruna music.
It has taken me quite a while to find the necessary calmness and time needed in order to create the way I do. Last year in November, I began recording for Runaljod – Yggdrasil, which will be the second part of the Runaljod trilogy. The creative process has been time-consuming and demanding, but I am very happy to say that I am now in the final stages of recording Yggdrasil. Like our previous album, it is partly recorded outdoors and in places or situations relevant to the given song. Although the instruments are more or less the same as on Gap Var Ginnunga, the nature of the set of runes featured on Yggdrasil have naturally made it a very different album. It is also worth noting that this time I’ve been working more closely with Lindy and Gaahl during the creative process. We are all very satisfied with the result so far, and we are looking forward to presenting this new piece of old-rooted culture!
Together with Indie Recordings we are aiming for a spring release (March/April) both in Europe and in the US." (Watch the video for the song "Løyndomsriss" from their first album HERE). Link
