Norwegian world folk music act, Wardruna heav moved the release of Kvitravn – First Flight Of The White Raven, from April 22 to June 10 via via Music For Nations/Sony Music/ Columbia Germany/By Norse. The group have just released an official music video for the streamed live performance of “Fehu“.
Einar Selvik says, “Fehu is a song inspired by ancient runic poetry. The word itself refers to cattle/livestock and wealth and the song discusses the duality of wealthiness. “Fehu” was originally released on the album Runaljod – Yggdrasil in 2013. It has been a permanent song in our live-set ever since the release and thus, it feels great to finally release a live version of the song.”
Regarding the release date of Kvitravn: First Flight of the White Raven, moving back to June 10. A statement from Einar is as follows; “Due to a very unfortunate production issue, we are forced to move the release date of First Flight Of The White Raven in all of its formats to June 10. On a more positive note and due to popular demand, we will make the DVD available as a standalone item and offer the concert as VOD (Video-On-Demand) through our World and US online-shops.” He continues, “the DVD presale starts April 22nd along with a new digital single and video from the upcoming release. We apologise for the inconvenience this may cause and we are grateful for your understanding.”
