Sigrid has announced the release details for her second album, ‘How To Let Go’.
The full-length, which contains her latest single ‘It Gets Dark’, is set to arrive on 6th May 2022.
The twelve-track album, which also contains recent singles ‘Burning Bridges’ and ‘Mirror’, was written at a point Sigrid was thinking a lot about her life in Norway, and also her life outside of it.
“They’re two different things,” she explains. “The chill girl who loves to ski and hike and cook versus the other part of me that’s like ‘let’s go out’, or let’s play massive shows, go on stage and not be scared of anything. I used to be so shy as a kid but then when I’m on stage at Glastonbury for example I love losing myself in it.”
The news comes alongside a video for ‘It Gets Dark’, the track that debuted earlier this week.
“I believe you need to feel the lows in life to feel the highs, and you have to know what sucks to then properly appreciate the good stuff,” she explains. “‘It Gets Dark’ is an ode to that. I honestly don’t think I’ve ever been as excited about a single release before. It’s the first song that was written for my upcoming album, and I remember the joy and relief when we figured out the soundscape. I was like FINALLY I know how this second record is gonna sound!
“The music video is the weirdest I’ve gone visually and I absolutely love it. We’re playing with planets, UFO’s and rooms all made by hand, as well as perspective, time and space. It’s the second time working with the brilliant Femke Huurdeman and Canada, and I’d literally do anything for that team; hence me being reborn out of a planet egg, flying in space with wind blowing in my face, punching a planet and wearing the Saturn ring on my head. It’s as ridiculously fun as it was making it: enjoy!”
