Sauna is the follow-up to Elverum’s pair of 2012 LPs, Clear Moon and Ocean Roar. Recorded over the course of 15 months in Anacortes, Washington, the double LP contains 12 tracks, including the previously revealed “Dragon” and “This”.
Sauna is inspired by “Vikings and zen and real life,” according to a press release. It adds, “All of the song titles are single words and some of the songs are very long. This is music meant to weigh heavy on you like a lot of cold water at night, and also the sword glimmering at the bottom of the lake at night.”
Pre-orders for the album are ongoing.
