Anna of the North releases her third-studio album Crazy Life. Featuring 11 highly anticipated tracks, Crazy Life is an electric body of work displaying the inner workings of Anna of the North’s journey throughout the years. Listen to Crazy Life HERE.
Crazy Life transcends the Norwegian artist’s ability to find comfort in vulnerability by inviting listeners into her world and illustrating exactly how it’s done. Uncovering iridescence in mundanity, Anna of the North offers confessional and relatable lyrics with clarity, confidence and a splash of shimmer.
“The album is about everything, nothing, and all in between,” she observes. “It’s about those small things we don’t necessarily talk about—like the days where you lie on the couch because you can’t get out of the house. As humans, we’re complex. What I love thinking about is the fact that when I let these songs out in to the universe, people will connect with them in different ways. Some people will cry to them; other people will have sex to them. That’s the beautiful thing about music. I’ve definitely gone into some territory inside of me that I haven’t in the past.”
Giving these themes concrete form as a “house,” Anna teamed up with Australian designer Montana Kitching. The artwork for each of the previously released singles corresponds to a place in the “house,” and the Vinyl brings the vision to life. While “Dandelion” introduced viewers to Anna’s living room, complete with her fluffy dog and thriving plants, “Bird Sing” captured the image directly outside Anna’s bedroom window, giving you a 360- look at Anna’s dwelling. “Nobody” gives a stark overview of Anna’s bedroom and the messy bed and leftover cereal that we’ve all been privy to at some point. Explore the full house HERE.
“The character in the house is legit caught in a time loop,” she explains. “Many of the songs are about being stuck and how it’s hard to get out of your own patterns. The only thing that calms her is music, so she writes an album, finishes it, and she’s suddenly out. It’s like music is a portal back to the real world.”
In the end, Anna chronicles life in all of its insanity, glory, and bliss.
Additionally, in celebration of the album release, Anna of the North announces a headlining European and North American tour, hitting cities such as Paris, Chicago, San Francisco and more. Anna also invites you to two intimate album release performance dates- Baby’s All Right in New York City on Monday, November 14thand The Moroccan Lounge in Los Angeles on Wednesday, November 16th.
With 550M+ streams under her belt, co-signs from Tyler, the Creator, Dua Lipa, Alina Baraz, Rejjie Snow, Steve Lazy and more, Anna of the North is the pop star who has been hiding in plain sight.
