Wardruna have released a special Solstice track and film clip “Andvevarljod (Song of the spirit weavers)”.
The song is taken from the upcoming album Kvitravn and explores the Nordic deities of fate.
It features guest appearances by a group of prominent Norwegian traditional singers – Kirsten Bråten Berg, Sigrid Berg, Unni Løvlid and Ingebjørg Reinholdt alongside Wardruna’s own Lindy-Fay Hella.
Einar Selvik from Wardruna explains “On a personal level, ‘Andvevarljod’ is a song I hold very dear and it was also my starting point on the new album. Musically, it gives voice to very old song traditions and on top of that, it is voiced by some of the most central reasons why these traditions are being kept alive for us and the generations to come. So, special thanks go out to our guest singers for lending us their talents and for the invaluable work they do for keeping our traditions alive!”
