MYRKUR has a released a brand new song!
The brand new song, titled Måneblôt, is taken from the Danish composer and multi-instrumentalist’s upcoming new album, Mareridt, which is scheduled to be released in September this year. The upcoming record was recorded between Copenhagen and Seattle with producer Randall Dunn (EARTH, Marissa Nadler, SUN O))), BORIS). Speaking about the upcoming album, Amalie Bruun [MYRKUR] says, “Måneblôt is a tale which portrays a nightmare engaging a woman, girl, animal, violence, sun and fire worship and the pagan ritual, Blót. I wanted to make an album that I always needed to exist but never did, so, I wrote it myself. I was in one of the worst times of my life, I was afraid to sleep, you know how they say that when you have been through trauma or abuse, you tend to recreate the situation in an attempt to take ownership of it? I think I was doing that. I was trying to solve things [in my nightmares] that I could not solve in real life. Things I could not run away from. It’s very giving, your environment becomes part of the song, and the songwriting. I just love that. Nature changed this record. This record is very connected to my true self, without an ego or persona. I am interested in human spirit, when it goes beyond the layers. When I get to that place, I feel invincible.”
