AURORA has revealed two brand-new songs from her forthcoming album The Gods We Can Touch. A Dangerous Thing and Everything Matters featuring French songstress Pomme are out now and can be listened to here.
AURORA has explained of Everything Matters, “It’s a very strange story. A story I would like for people out there to figure out themselves. I contacted a French artist, Pomme, to write the ending for me. And it is beautiful. Sensual. And real. I do often feel like this world is trying to make me focus on all these great miracles. And somehow I feel like it makes me miss out on the small ones. And that is sad. Because the small miracles happen all the time. Sometimes several times a day. And I want to see all of them. Because everything matters.”
And of A Dangerous Thing, “There’s a lot of beauty in this world. And there’s a lot of ugly. I was surprised to learn how often the ugly is disguised as beauty. How often poison is disguised as wine. And life disguised as death.
And when we learn that what we thought was good for us, is in fact bad for us – even then we tend to go return to it. Because at least it’s familiar. And all we ever dream about is home. Seductive, yet destructive. A dangerous thing indeed.”
AURORA’s highly anticipated new album, The Gods We Can Touch will be released through Decca, on 21st January. This is an elegant and celestial but provocative body of work about shame, desire and morality, all seen through the narrative prism of Greek mythology. In each of the album’s 15 songs we meet a different god or goddess and with A Dangerous Thing, we meet Peitho, the personification of seduction and persuasion and in Everything Matters, AURORA introduces us to Atlas, God of endurance. Pre-order The Gods We Can Touch here.

The songstress has explained, “It’s rare for me to present the soul of my music like it will be presented on this Moment. It’s going to be so pure. And so wonderful. I’m excited to show my warriors the universe this album is bringing to us. A small touch of the divine.”
