NEWS: Celestial North reveals new single ‘Otherworld,’ the title track of her upcoming album

Celestial North has just shared her new single ‘Otherworld”. This glorious dreamscape is the lead single and title track from her forthcoming debut album, Otherworld, due for release on the 7th July 2023. The Scottish, Lake District-based artist, beckons you into her shimmering and ethereal world of spiralling wyrd-pop; a cosmic detour into a land of impossibility and beauty, bathed in folklore. The lead single and title track ‘Otherworld‘ is a sublime rush of celestial pop, enveloping tribal rhythms and twinkling instrumentals. Haunting mantras and hymn-like harmonies are bathed in the dawn light, anchored by a repeated refrain “Don’t look back and you’ll never feel broken” that’s at once comforting and transportive.

Listen here:

The lead single and title track Otherworld – is a sublime rush of celestial pop, enveloping tribal rhythms and twinkling instrumentals. Celestial North explains that ‘Otherworld’ is “A rabble-rousing pick-me-up on days when life feels a bit much, a reminder that it will all be ok and that we are never truly alone in this world. Providing the beat and movement of life for us all to shake it off together.”

Deeply influenced by her natural surroundings and wild Scottish upbringing, the album was co-recorded and produced with Woody (Sea Power) in the Lake District, creating a stunning tapestry of work that adds a human heart and touch to elements of dream pop, electro-pop, folktronica, gaze, and techno, offering an escape to new realms, adventurous and futuristic, yet with its roots in ancient civilisations of the past. Weaving her self-proclaimed ‘Pagan euphoria’ across eleven startling songs, Otherworld is another marvelous step forward in her artistry and is the product of years of honing and refining her songwriting and sound. 

.Premiered by Chris Hawkins on BBC 6 Music, the single Otherworld follows the success of ‘When The Gods Dance’ which also received airplay from the BBC, Amazing Radio, and various BBC Introducing shows – garnering praise from the likes of Roddy Hart at BBC Radio Scotland, Jim Gellatly of Amazing Radio, and Tom Salmon of BBC Introducing. The gorgeous follow-up ‘The Nature of Light’ received a similar response on radio and online and was featured in Under The Radar and Snack Magazine. The instrumental lushness of ‘Yarrow’ completed a trilogy of releases in 2022.

 ‘Otherworld’ will be released on the 7th of July 2023.
