Norwegian folk outfit Wardruna has announced that they will be releasing a new album next year. Titled Kvitravn (which translates to White Raven), the album is set to hit shelves on January 22nd, 2021 through Sony/Columbia (worldwide) and By Norse Music (USA/Australia)
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.
Wardruna's Einar Selvik is awarded the EGIL STORBEKKEN'S MUSIC PRIZE 2020!
The prize is a national honorary award that was created in memory of the musician, composer and cultural bearer Egil Storbekken. It can be given to people who have made an extraordinary effort in various work with Norwegian folk music, and especially the older folk instruments. Einar receives the award for his genre-wide work based on the old instruments and other forms of expression. In 2020, the prize is a collaboration between NOPA (Norwegian Society of Composersand Lyricists), the Norsk Lur- og Bukkehornlag (NLB), the Tolga municipality as well as the Storbekken family.
