Norwegian singer-songwriter Susanna has offered another preview of her upcoming album Baudelaire & Orchestra, which comes out July 28. ‘The Vampire’ follows lead cut ‘Obsession’; check it out via the accompanying visual below.
“The full orchestra joins me on ‘The Vampire’ in addition to both Stina Stjern and Anita Kaasbøll on vocals,” Susanna said in a statement. “It’s a dramatic poem, about emotional abuse and forms of addiction. The rhythm is essential to this song, with the drive and intensity. I think the orchestra arrangement has turned out gorgeous, with the horn sections, orchestral percussion and strings.”
“The video for ‘The Vampire’ in orchestra-version is sort of an animated lyrics video, with a lot of texture and movements, raw and gritty,” she added. “It turns red like a vampire’s kiss. It’s made by Sigurd Ytre-Arne, who has done a lot of live videos for me before.”
