AURORA shares new track 'The River'

With her eagerly-awaited new studio album now less than a month away, AURORA has now unveiled the next cut to be lifted from her forthcoming full-length.

The new single 'The River' follows on from the previously shared tracks 'The Seed' and 'Animal' in previewing her new LP 'A Different Kind of Human', which is set to arrive on the 7th June via Decca Records.

Speaking about her new release, she added, "It’s quite a happy song… it’s been a while since I’ve had a joyful song so it feels very nice. It was inspired by something quite sad as I looked at the suicide rates on this planet and apparently 73% of them were men and then I thought, why is that the case? Then I realised, obviously, it must be because of the feeling that you can’t talk about your emotions and show that you’re in pain because pain is often associated with weakness but you know, here in my world it’s not, so the song is inspired by something quite sad but it is also happy because crying can be such a positive experience, especially afterwards when you actually feel a bit lighter. It’s about that feeling to let off some steam as they say here in England."
