Oh Land Announces Fourth Studio Album and Drops New Single
The album, 'Earth Sick,' comes out later this fall
Danish singer Oh Land announced her fourth album Monday, alongside its first single “Head Up High.” Earth Sick comes just a little over a year after her last album, Wish Bone, and promises to be a “full-circle return to the artist’s bedroom production style.” The symphonic electro-pop album was inspired by her struggle to hold on to “a sense of idealism despite the complexities of life,” which certainly explains the slightly ominous title.
The bouncy “Head Up High,” which can be heard in the above video, was written by the singer as encouragement for a friend that was going through a rough patch (“No heavy rain’s gonna hold me down any more / No sin or shame’s gonna strain my soul, oh no”). Oh Land forgot about the song until the friend reminded her about it a year later, at which point she quickly finished it and added it to the album.
Wish Bone is set for a November 11 release date, but New Yorkers can catch the Brooklyn-based singer at The Bowery Ballroom on October 21 — her first New York show in a year.
