With her new album ‘Elevation’’ due March 25th via SusannaSonata, Norwegian artist Susanna, the woman behind Susanna and the Magical Orchestra // Susanna // Susanna Wallumrød, a creator of bold, original and enrapturing music is today sharing the title track of her upcoming record. ‘Elevation’ is inspired by the works of the French poet Charles Baudelaire and a follow-up to 2020’s ‘Baudelaire & Piano’.
A skeletal piano-melody and Stina Stjern’s evocative cassette tapes makes the setting for Susanna’s soulful vocal interpretation of this gorgeous poem. Humans seeking a transcendent state of being is hardly a new concept; either through religion, meditation, rituals, different forms of spiritual awakening or even drugs. Seems like Baudelaire made acquaintance with several of those concepts. Nonetheless, he wrote these transcending words – beautiful vivid images of the human condition.
