KVITRAVN Cover Artwork
Out now via BY NORSE MUSIC and SONY MUSIC/COLUMBIA RECORDS, KVITRAVN (“White Raven”) marks a distinct evolution in WARDRUNA‘s sound. The album “dwells in a dreamy darkness, eliciting a tone that is as somber as it is meditative” (Outburn, 1/22/21) as it features a broad selection of both traditional and historical instruments and guest appearances by a small group of prominent traditional singers, spearheaded by Kirsten Bråten Berg, one of the most important custodians of Norwegian traditional song. Throughout its eleven songs, KVITRAVN illuminates Northern sorcery, spirit-animals, shadows, nature and animism, the wisdom and meanings of certain myths, various Norse spiritual concepts, and the relation between sage and songs.
KVITRAVN has made an impressive worldwide debut, charting in several Top 10 charts across the world; see the below images for a list of all placements.
