Susanna Announces New Album, Shares New Single ‘Everyone Knows’

    Susanna has announced a new album titled Meditations on Love, which is slated for release on August 23. Today, the Norwegian singer and composer has unveiled its lead single, ‘Everyone Knows’, which comes with a self-directed video that was filmed and edited by Jonas Mailand. Check it out and see the album cover and tracklist below.

    “I tried to capture the very vulnerable feeling of leaving a relationship and the shame that oen comes with being betrayed,” Susanna said of ‘Everyone Knows’ in a statement. “Your world is suddenly turned upside down and you are le with the aching feeling, ‘how can I go on without my love?’ And the ʻlove’ is not just that specific person, but all the things you identify with the relationship, and very oen how you identify yourself, who you are.”

    “With Meditations on Love, I wanted to bring my songs and music into a new landscape,” Susanna added. “And I knew I had to find someone new to work with on the production to do that, so that I could be pushed in other directions.” The album was produced by Juhani Silvola and features contributions from Sarah-Jane Summers on strings, Harald Lassen and Morten Barrikmo on reeds, Dag Erik Knedal Andersen of Cortex on drums, and Ane Marthe Sørlien Holen of Pinquins and Ensemble Neon on percussion.

    Last year, Susanna released Baudelaire & Orchestra, the final in a trilogy of albums inspired by the French poet.
