Norwegian electro-pop artist AURORA with her breathtaking rendition of The Beatles’, “Across The Universe” on triple j’s Like A Version.

This appearance on triple j’s  Like A Version  has finished off  AURORA’s  visit to Australia in perfect form. The recent tour saw her perform floor-shaking shows around the country as part of the touring festival  Groovin’ The Moo , as well as sideshows at renowned venues in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane. 

Following up the poignant and timely video for her second single,  “The Seed”,  which depicted the current youth protests around the globe for climate change awareness, this new video highlights  AURORA’s  care for the environment in an entirely different way.  

Through the visually arresting metaphor of the earth and its plants growing out from within her body, and her continual struggles to be rid of this growth,  AURORA makes comment on humanity’s connection to the land and their wish to disconnect from it, in favour of abusing it for their own gain. 

After an enormously successful year so far - which has seen her first single  “Animal” achieve high rotation on Triple J, and her second single  “The Seed” amass close to 2 million streams on Spotify since its release in April - this third single sees  AURORA gearing up for the release of her third full album,  A Different Kind of Human (Step II), on June 7th.

“The River” is available on all platforms now.
