The very talented Norwegian multi-instrumentalist SYLVAINE, has released her fourth foul-length album “Nova”, on March 4th through Season Of Mist. To support the release of her new album, SYLVAINE has announced a brand new headlining tour across Europe together with E-L-R.

Following her 2018 “Atoms Aligned Coming Undone” release, SYLVAINE (a play on the name of one of her beloved French poets, Paul Verlaine) gives us “Nova”, an album that is both a musical and personal reawakening of a singer/composer finding her way in this world.

The Lord of the Rings type choir arrangement heralds in the opening of her latest release as we the entranced listeners follow her to the realm of Lothlorien. The creation of this ambitious release began in 2019, before the world changed before all of our eyes. Experiencing a personal loss in a time the world was suffering a collective loss, SYLVAINE composed on her guitar and wrote in her notebooks, eventually leading her into the small rooms of Drudenhaus in early 2021. Sequestered away in the countryside of France, the Norwegian native and her musical cohorts would all contract Covid. Asthmatic since birth, our heroine isolated herself in a small room to score out the different soprano and alto melodies of an actual choir to make her vision for the opening track “Nova”, come to life. Sung in an imagined language, the syllables of NO-VA continued to emerge, suggesting to the singer something linguistically symbolic and important.

“Nova” track listing:
1. Nova
2. Mono No Aware
3. Nowhere, Still Somewhere
4. Fortapt
5. I Close My Eyes So I Can See
6. Everything Must Come To An End
Bonus track
7. Dissolution
