The Gods We Can Touch auf Wikipedia (oder andere Quellen):

The Gods We Can Touch is the third studio album by Norwegian singer-songwriter and record producer Aurora. It was released on 21 January 2022 by Decca and Glassnote Records. As in her other releases, Aurora worked with Magnus Skylstad and Askjell Solstrand, along with new collaborations with Jamie Hartman, Martin Sjølie and Matias Tellez on its production.

Conceived as a departure from the concept and sound of her previous works, The Gods We Can Touch has been characterised to be an electropop record, along with folk-pop, ethereal, art pop, electro-folk, and synth-pop. Its sound incorporates an eclectic and multifaceted style with electronic textures, Western elements, and intimate orchestrations. Inspired predominantly by Greek mythology, the lyrics explore themes of self-empowerment, abuse, heartbreak, morality and desire, with a maximal and introspective style. The Gods We Can Touch received critical acclaim upon release, with music critics praising its "ethereal" vocal performance and experimental musical direction.

The Gods We Can Touch was supported by ten singles, five of which were supplemented by music videos. "Exist for Love" was promoted by an online music festival organized by Aurora. "Cure for Me", "Giving in to the Love", and "Heathens" were released between October and December 2021. "A Dangerous Thing" and "Everything Matters", featuring French singer Pomme, were released as a double single. "A Temporary High" followed alongside the album's release. The record debuted atop the Norwegian albums chart as Aurora's second number-one album in Norway, while also reaching the top ten in Scotland, the United Kingdom, and the US Billboard Heatseekers Albums chart. To further promote the album, Aurora performed several songs at the concert film A Touch of the Divine and embarked on her fourth headlining concert tour.

Background and recording

Aurora rented Barony Rosendal (pictured) in November 2020, where she recorded the majority of The Gods We Can Touch.

Aurora began writing songs for the album in January 2019, right after she chose the title for her new record.[1] According to her, two days after the release of her second studio album A Different Kind of Human (Step 2) (2019), she already had planned what she wanted for her next project.[2] During the writing process she read about the history of religion, which was a source of inspiration for the themes of the album.[3]

Aurora stated in an interview with Billboard Japan that production for two upcoming albums began in November 2019, one of them being the yet-untitled The Gods We Can Touch.[2] In an interview with Riff Magazine, she revealed that the closer album had a bigger perspective in comparison to her previous efforts, concluding that "it's an album for every individual within the big army of love."[4] She further detailed the album in an interview with Motley, adding that it "will be dressed in an armour of hardness. But I'm also really exploring the soft, delicate part of me."[5]

The first recorded song for the album was "Exist for Love", which was recorded in January 2020 at the Office in Norway, a month before the COVID-19 pandemic was declared in Norway.[6] The track was made in collaboration with Isobel Waller-Bridge, who contributed with string arrangements.[7] In November 2020, Aurora rented Barony Rosendal to record The Gods We Can Touch.[8] Other recording locations included The Jungle and Blanca Studio, all located in Norway.[9] In April 2021, Aurora's single "Runaway" began growing in popularity on TikTok. In an interview with NME regarding the song's newfound success, Aurora described the themes of the upcoming album: "I'm asking questions to everything that made us the way we are now; in our past, in politics, religion, and in weird ways of thought we have created that make no sense – like racism, not being a feminist or burning women for being witches. All of these strange things that we have convinced ourselves are the right thing to do, which is just so odd."[10] She later stated in July 2021 that album was finished, and her intentions to release the album before the end of 2021.[11]

Music and lyrics

Overview

The Gods We Can Touch has been characterised to be an electropop record,[12][13][14][15][16] along with folk-pop,[14][17] ethereal,[17][16] art pop,[18][19] electro-folk,[16] and synth-pop.[16] The sound of the album incorporates an eclectic and multifaceted style,[14][20][16] set with vast soundscapes, electronic textures, Western elements, intimate orchestrations, multiple layers, and textures.[21][14] Musical influences of the record draws from a wide range of genres, such as jazz,[22] chamber pop, global music,[23] Latin music, and arena rock.[24] Aurora classified the album as its own genre due to its "chaotic" and "genre blending" sound.[25]

Marcy Donelson of AllMusic stated that "The Gods We Can Touch mixes natural, live-sounding vocals and acoustic instrumental performances with ethereal processed harmonies, drum machines, synthesizers, and various programming." The tracks "Exist for Love" and Artemis" were the only songs recorded on first takes, which "commit[ted] to a more spontaneous sound."[26] Aurora's sopranolike vocal performance throughout the album was described by many critics as "ethereal",[14][16][20][17] with interludes to songs that showcase her voice and vocal tone shifts.[21][12] Georgia Griffiths from The Music wrote that Aurora is "channelling Lana Del Rey, [and] the next it's Santigold" in her vocal performances on the record.[21]

A concept album like Aurora's previous releases, The Gods We Can Touch deviates from the concepts found on her tribal-inspired EP Infections of a Different Kind (Step 1) (2018) and album A Different Kind of Human (Step 2) (2019), in which she explored themes of empowerment, politics and ecological crisis.[14][27] Described by her as "chapter three of my life",[28] she revealed to be going to a more experimental direction with the album, and stated that it would not discuss themes like "doom, gloom, COVID and horror", instead of focusing on "more playful and fun" songs, whilst also referencing "a lot of things that bother [her] with society and our history".[11] The lyrical themes are heavily inspired predominantly by Greek mythology,[24][14][21] though Aurora acknowledged that some of them have references to Abrahamic and ancient Roman religions.[29][30] Furthermore, the styles of lyrical writing have been described as dark and disturbing, with a maximal and introspective style.[17][31][14] The lyrics throughout the songs of the record also talk about self-empowerment, abuse, heartbreak, morality and desire.[12][15]

Songs

"Everything Matters", the second track on The Gods We Can Touch, features vocals from French singer Pomme, marking Aurora's first collaboration in one of her albums.

The Gods We Can Touch opens with "The Forbidden Fruits of Eden", an interlude that takes its title from the forbidden fruit of the Garden of Eden that appeared in the biblical book of Genesis.[24] Composed of delicate harmonies, it "set[s] an explicitly religious tone" for the rest of the album.[15] The electronica and chamber pop ballad "Everything Matters" features French singer-songwriter Pomme with a spoken word outro in French language.[32][22][14] Inspired by the myth of Prometheus and the creation of humanity from clay, "Giving in to the Love", questions obsession with body image, while .[33] It incorporates electropop and power pop genres and contains tom tom strikes, a drum machine and echoey synths.[34][35] The baroque pop track "You Keep Me Crawling" deals with abuse of power in relationships where Aurora conveys "intensity and power in her vocals, while also showing vulnerability and softer moments."[8][36][37]

Aurora called "Exist for Love" her first love song.[38] It is a dreamy, retro-styled ballad accompanied by acoustic guitar and backing harmonies that moves into a soaring, strings-swept melody as she declares her love to her lover.[35][26] The following track, "The Innocent", is an upbeat dance-pop and house song with a Latin rhythm that is accompanied by syncopated chordal piano, brass and pizzicato strings.[39][23] Its production was described to be "harking back to the 1920s Jazz Age conventions, yet being undercut with a more current EDM feel."[22] "Exhale Inhale", a stark contrast to the previous song, contains a folk-inspired sound.[34][15] The track discusses the fear of several environmental issues "that awaits us" like wildfires and pollution.[40][41] "A Temporary High" has an 1980s-influenced synth-pop sound that breaks into a thumping electro beat.[37][42]

In "A Dangerous Thing", Aurora reflects on an abusive relationship, referencing the goddess of seduction Peitho, and showcases tone shifts from light harmonies to deeper verses.[15] The dark sonority of the song is backed by an acoustic guitar, light chimes and minimal drumming.[39] "Blood in the Wine" opens with a war cry reminiscent of The Good, the Bad and the Ugly against gentle acoustic guitar and thunderous percussion as it builds into a "collosus roar".[16] An electropop track, which was compared to the music of Fleetwood Mac, "This Could Be a Dream" is a subdued ballad driven by "a flowing melody over a slow beat", piano, orchestral strings and trumpets that talks about "finding strength when you have nothing left to give."[12][13][16] The Gods We Can Touch closes with the folk and orchestral pop cut "A Little Place Called the Moon".[26][15] One of her favourite songs from the album, Aurora felt that it was the "perfect ending" for the album.[43]

Release and promotion

After clearing her Instagram feed in May 2020, Aurora began hinting at "the beginning of a new era".[44] She initially expected to release the album in that year but she revealed in a September 2020 interview her decision to postpone it due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[28] The next year, the album was delayed to early 2022, following the commercial success of her 2015 single "Runaway".[8] On 14 October 2021, she revealed the album's name and track listing.[45]

In July 2020 Aurora organized the Exist for Love Sessions, an online music festival that promoted various emerging artists.[44] She later appeared at the Late Night with Seth Meyers in November 2021, her first performance at that show since 2018.[46] In promotion of the album's release in the United Kingdom, Aurora performed at two sold-out shows in London.[47] She was also interviewed by Norwegian TV host Anne Lindmo and performed "A Temporary High" in her talk show Lindmo, which was broadcast by NRK.[48]

Singles

Aurora decided to release "Exist for Love" as the album's first single on 14 May 2020 because she felt "the world needs more love than ever".[49] "Cure for Me" was released as The Gods We Can Touch's next single on 7 July 2021.[50]

On 14 October, she released "Giving in to the Love" as the album's next single, and officially announced The Gods We Can Touch, and its release date of 21 January 2022.[45] On 2 December, she released "Heathens" as the album's fourth single.[51] "A Dangerous Thing" was released as a double single on 7 January 2022 with "Everything Matters", featuring French singer Pomme, as a B-side. The latter song was released as a promotional single only.[52]

"A Temporary High" served as the sixth single, released on 21 January 2022, alongside the album's release.[53] A music video was released on 27 January 2022.[54]

Concert film and tour

On 3 December 2021, Aurora announced a virtual concert film titled A Touch of the Divine, released exclusively to Moment House on 25 January 2022, a week later after the album was released.[55] It was directed by Alexandra Green and produced by Bullion Productions and Mercury Studios.[56] A teaser was posted on 18 January 2022, while an official trailer was released two days later.[57][58] Described as a "worldwide digital experience", the film included six songs from the album that were accompanied by choreography and interludes spoken by Aurora herself.[55][59]

The album received further promotion from her fourth headlining concert tour, which was announced on 9 July 2021.[60] The tour will span across Europe and North America, starting on 13 February 2022 in Milan, Italy,[60] and set to conclude on 12–13 September in Barcelona, Spain.[61] The second leg of the tour visited North America in May and June 2022.[8]

Usage in media

The fourth track of the album, "Cure for Me" is set to be part of the main soundtrack of Just Dance 2024 Edition.[62]

The Gods We Can Touch was met with critical acclaim upon release.[66] At Metacritic, which assigns a normalised score out of 100 to ratings from publications, the album received a mean score of 81 based on 9 reviews, indicating "universal acclaim".[64]

The Line of Best Fit writer Tom Williams praised the album as an "ethereal masterpiece" and stated that Aurora's sound is "like heaven on Earth."[17] Steven Loftin of Dork called Aurora on the album "exciting as she is intriguing" and makes the "world feels like a better place."[65] Clash's Finlay Holden called the record "high-reaching" and noted that the themes of "angry, celebratory, wallowing and cathartic energies exhibit themselves in a maximalist way."[31] Ben Hogwood from musicOMH states that the record consisted of "futuristic production and intriguing, sometimes daring melodies" despite being rooted in a "deep and very distant past."[42]

Chris Hamilton-Peach of DIY writes that "Aurora's celestial spark remains her calling card" on the album.[23] Gigwise writer Tom Taylor sees Aurora as she "experiments with genre in her joyful new album" while also being reliant on "high-energy, electro-pop anthems."[15] Andrew Trendell of NME notes that the record "seizes the opportunity to take the world on and fight with all her power" and is loaded with "idiosyncratic quirks and enchanting notions."[36] Hayden Godfrey from Under the Radar felt that the record showcases Aurora's "glorious highs and careful lows" towards the production.[32] Ewan Gleadow from Cult Following says that Aurora "relies entirely on the fascinatingly lucid vocal range she holds."[67] According to Marcy Donelson from AllMusic, the record only expands on Aurora's "already mystical bearing."[26]

Commercial performance

Upon its release, The Gods We Can Touch became the third most-streamed album on Spotify that week with over 60 million streams on the platform.[47] The album debuted atop the Norwegian VG-lista chart with 2.300 units, marking Aurora's second number one on the chart.[68] In the United States, the record peaked at numbers six and 56 on Billboard's Top Heatseekers and Top Current Album Sales charts, respectively.[69][70] In the UK, the album debuted at number eight on Official Charts with 4.000 units.[71]

Aurora auf dem Parkenfestivalen in Bodø, Norwegen (2023)

Aurora (* 15. Juni 1996 in Stavanger als Aurora Aksnes[1]) ist eine norwegische Sängerin, Tänzerin, Songwriterin und Musikproduzentin.

Leben

Herkunft

Aksnes kam 1996 in Stavanger zur Welt und lebte zunächst in der Kommune Sandnes. Im Alter von drei Jahren zog sie mit ihrer Familie nach Os im Raum Bergen.[2] Mit sechs Jahren begann sie das Klavierspiel zu erlernen. Später fing sie damit an, eigene Lieder zu schreiben. Ende 2012 wurde ohne ihr Wissen ihr Lied Puppet auf YouTube veröffentlicht. Mit dem Lied wurde Aksnes schließlich vom norwegischen Radiosender NRK P3 als Newcomerin der Woche (Ukas urørt) geführt.[1][3]

Karrierebeginn und Durchbruch

Ihre Debütsingle ist das im März 2014 erschienene Lied Awakening. Im Februar 2014 trat sie im Alter von 17 Jahren mit zu diesem Zeitpunkt nur einer veröffentlichten Single beim Musikfestival by:Larm auf. Dort wurde sie als „gutes weibliches Vorbild“ mit einem Preisgeld von 50.000 Kronen ausgezeichnet. Von der norwegischen Zeitung Dagbladet wurde sie mit ihrem Auftritt als „Gewinnerin“ des Festivals betitelt. Im selben Jahr trat sie auch beim Øyafestivalen auf. Sie erhielt im Jahr 2014 zudem Verträge bei Petroleum Records für Norwegen, bei Glassnote Records für die USA und international beim britischen Musiklabel Decca Records.[4][3] Beim Musikpreis P3 Gull wurde Aksnes im Jahr 2014 in der Newcomer-Kategorie nominiert.[5]

Bekannt wurde Aurora Aksnes im Alter von 18 Jahren durch ihr Lied Running with the Wolves aus ihrer gleichnamigen Debüt-EP, die im Mai 2015 veröffentlicht wurde. Das Lied wurde in Deutschland für Vodafone-Werbungen genutzt und konnte in die deutschen Singlecharts einsteigen.[1][6] Das Lied fand zudem als Titellied der britischen Serie Wolfblood – Verwandlung bei Vollmond Verwendung.[7] Von der US-amerikanischen Sängerin und Songschreiberin Katy Perry wurde sie für Runaway als vielversprechendes Nachwuchstalent gelobt.[8] Aksnes’ Lied Conqueror wurde im Videospiel FIFA 16 und der Song Under Stars im Abspann von Mass Effect: Andromeda verwendet.

Aksnes ist auch als Songwriterin für andere Künstler tätig. So findet sich beispielsweise mit In the Light ein Lied aus ihrer Feder auf dem 2015 veröffentlichten Album Crystal Sky der deutschen Sängerin Lena Meyer-Landrut. Im November 2015 hatte sie einen musikalischen Auftritt in der deutschen Late-Night-Show Inas Nacht. Im gleichen Jahr trat sie beim Friedensnobelpreiskonzert auf.[9] Für einen Werbespot für die britische Kaufhauskette John Lewis nahm sie im Jahr 2015 eine Coverversion des Oasis-Songs Half the World Away auf.[10][7] Damit schaffte sie es auf Platz elf der britischen Charts. Beim norwegischen Musikpreis Spellemannprisen 2015 gewann sie in der Newcomer-Kategorie. Sie wurde zudem für Running With the Wolves in der Kategorie „Lied des Jahres“ nominiert.[11]

Im März 2016 veröffentlichte Aksnes ihr Debütalbum All My Demons Greeting Me As a Friend. Mit diesem platzierte sie sich in Norwegen an der Spitze der Albumcharts. In Deutschland und Großbritannien erreichte sie jeweils einen Platz in den Top 30. Mehrere der Lieder ihres Debütalbums schrieb sie gemeinsam mit Odd Martin Skålnes und Magnus Skylstad.[1] Das Album wurde beim Spellemannprisen 2016 als „Album des Jahres“ nominiert. Aksnes selbst gewann für das Album in der Popsolisten-Kategorie. Zudem wurde das Musikvideo zu ihrem Lied I Went Too Far als Musikvideo des Jahres ausgezeichnet.[11]

Weitere Karriere

In den Jahren 2018 und 2019 brachte Aksnes ein zweiteiliges Album heraus. Der erste Teil war das in EP-Form erschienene Infections of a Different Kind – Step 1, das im September 2018 veröffentlicht wurde. Im Juni 2019 folgte mit A Different Kind of Human – Step 2 der zweite Teil.[1] Zuvor hatte sie daraus bereits unter anderem die Singles Animal und The Seed veröffentlicht. Für die Produktion der brasilianischen Telenovela Deus Salve o Rei (deutsch Gott schütze den König) sang sie als Titelmelodie den traditionellen Song Scarborough Fair.

Für die Neuverfilmung von Dumbo aus dem Jahr 2019 sang sie Baby Mine.[12] Im November 2019 war Aurora für das Lied Wo noch niemand war des Films Die Eiskönigin II als Hintergrundsängerin tätig. Am 9. Februar 2020 spielten Menzel und Aurora das Lied während der 92. Oscar-Verleihung zusammen mit neun der internationalen Sänger des Songs, die in neun verschiedenen Sprachen sangen. Im Mai 2020 startete Aksnes mit der Single Exist for Love den Auftakt des nächsten Albums. Anfang September 2020 veröffentlichte Aksnes den Song The Secret Garden zur Neuverfilmung Der geheime Garten. Im Oktober 2020 nahm Aurora Aksnes eine Coverversion Thank U (Original von Alanis Morissette) auf. Ende 2020 veröffentlichte sie den Titelsong Stjernestøv zur gleichnamigen, beim norwegischen Rundfunk Norsk rikskringkasting (NRK) ausgestrahlten Weihnachtsserie.[13]

Am 7. Februar 2021 feierte das Lied Runaway seinen sechsten Geburtstag. Aufgrund des Ehrentages stellte Aksnes fünf weitere EPs aus ihren Songs zusammen. Im Frühjahr 2021 war das bereits 2015 veröffentlichte Lied Runaway auf Plattformen wie TikTok und Instagram erfolgreich. Dort wurde es als Hintergrundmusik für einen Filter benutzt.[14] Durch diesen viralen Trend landete das Lied in den Spotify-Charts[15] und erreichte allein schon auf YouTube seit dem Anfang 2021 475 Millionen Aufrufe.[16]

Im Juli 2021 veröffentlichte Aurora Aksnes die zweite Single Cure For Me ihres anstehenden Albums. Das Lied gilt als Kritik an Konversionstherapien.[17][18] Im Oktober 2021 brachte Aksnes die dritte Single Giving in to the Love aus heraus. Das Album The Gods We Can Touch wurde schließlich im Januar 2022 veröffentlicht. Im selben Monat brachten Aurora und Pomme zusammen Everything Matters heraus, wobei Pomme den französischen Teil des Liedes schrieb und einsang.[19] Im November 2022 gewann sie beim norwegischen Musikpreis P3 Gull den P3-Preis.[20] Für die Live-Action Serie One Piece, die seit dem 31. August 2023 auf Netflix läuft, wurde das Lied My Sails Are Set von Sonya Belousova und Giona Ostinelli komponiert, in dem Aurora den Gesang übernahm.
