AURORA shares new singles 'A Dangerous Thing' and 'Everything Matters'

With her highly-anticipated new album just a couple of weeks away, AURORA has now dropped a pair of new cuts lifted from her forthcoming full-length.

The new singles 'A Dangerous Thing' and 'Everything Matters', which sees her collaborate with French artist Pomme, follow on from the previously shared tracks 'Heathens', 'Giving In To The Love' and 'Cure For Me' in previewing her new LP 'The Gods We Can Touch', which is out on the 21st January via Decca Records.

Speaking about 'A Dangerous Thing', she said, "There’s a lot of beauty in this world. And there’s a lot of ugly. I was surprised to learn how often the ugly is disguised as beauty. How often poison is disguised as wine. And life disguised as death. And when we learn that what we thought was good for us, is in fact bad for us - even then we tend to go return to it. Because at least it’s familiar. And all we ever dream about is home. Seductive, yet destructive. 'A Dangerous Thing' indeed."

While adding about 'Everything Matters', "It’s a very strange story. A story I would like for people out there to figure out themselves. I contacted a French artist, Pomme, to write the ending for me. And it is beautiful. Sensual. And real. I do often feel like this world is trying to make me focus on all these great miracles. And somehow I feel like it makes me miss out on the small ones. And that is sad. Because the small miracles happen all the time. Sometimes several times a day. And I want to see all of them. Because 'Everything Matters'."
