Listen to Myrkur’s haunting new track Juniper


Vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Amalie Bruun, aka Myrkur, has released a new single titled Juniper.

It’s the first of two new tracks which Bruun recently recorded with producer Jaime Gomez Arellano at Orgone Studios in Bedfordshire, England, with the second song titled Bonden og Kragen set to arrive on December 7.

A statement reads: “Juniper is a gorgeous and powerful ballad that immediately hooks the listener with its infectious chorus and lush string arrangements, while Bonden og Kragen is a solo reinterpretation of a traditional Danish folk song from the 1600's. 

“Together, both tracks exquisitely capture Myrkur's eclectic sound and captivating personality.”

A limited edition 7-inch single on purple vinyl will also launch alongside the digital release. 

Both tracks are being launched to coincide with Myrkur’s winter UK and European tour, which will get under way in Stockholm on December 3.
