AURORA releases her heartfelt and dreamy single, A Potion For Love. The Norwegian star will also reveal her live Vevo Studio performance of the song on YouTube at 5pm BST tonight, here. The track was previously only available to listen to on the vinyl version of previous single, Cure For Me.
AURORA explains, “When I wrote Exist For Love, a celebrations of the love we carry within us, I also wrote Potion For Love. I wanted to also give something to the people who had lost their love. I find it so beautiful how we still find the bravery to give and receive love knowing how it can disappear at any moment. It makes it foolishly beautiful. Painfully delicious. So little connected to the mind and to logic that it makes my little heart want to burst.”
AURORA will headline Norway’s Øya Festival next month, alongside Florence + The Machine, Gorillaz and more.
The pop singer-songwriter joined the star-studded line up at BST earlier this month, alongside the likes of the legendary Duran Duran, Nile Rodgers & Chic, Laura Mvula and more. A 65,000-strong crowd filled Hyde Park in London, and witnessed AURORA play a set consisting of tracks spanning her accomplished career.
The songstress has also been dominating stages across America, whilst on a headline tour there. In April, AURORA completed a sold-out UK headline tour where she stopped in cities including a packed O2 Brixton Academy in London, where she performed to over 5000 adoring fans, Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds and Bristol. Shortly after this, AURORA won a highly-regarded Spellemann Award (Norway’s version of the GRAMMY’s) for International Success Of The Year!
AURORA has been on a phenomenal trajectory since the beginning of this year. January saw her score her first ever UK Top 10 with album The Gods We Can Touch (released via Decca), which landed at No.8 in the Official UK Album Chart. Inspired by Greek mythology, the record was described as “Euphoric” and “Heavenly” (NME), and was the third most streamed new album in the world on Spotify the weekend of its release.
