Norway’s very own, Anna Of the North returns with a brand new song and visual for her self-care track “Leaning On Myself”. This is the first taste of new music from the rising pop star since her debut album Lovers back in 2017. We are excited to hear new music from her and also a new sound from her previous synth-pop goodness. This time around her music is more raw and honest. On the track she seems to be more assertive and reflective. Describing this period of solitude and self-reflection for the first time today, Anna says:
I’ve been writing a lot of music the past year. ‘Leaning On Myself” is one of the songs that came out of it, maybe one of my favourite songs. I remember flying home from the States where we wrote it and I started crying. I kind of realized I’d written the soundtrack of my life one year ago. There was a point where I went through a lot of shit and I wasn’t feeling very well. I had one big break down where I called my mom and just knew I had to change my ways. I had to cut some people out of my life, people I loved but I knew weren’t really good for me. It was tough. But I’m good now. Every time I listen to this song it takes me back to that moment. It’s fucking sad but also powerful. I’m very grateful for where I am today. In the end you only have yourself, you know, and I guess that’s ok.
This feeling was brought to life int he visual for “Leaning On Myself” and we couldn’t be anymore excited for what is to come with this new era of music. Anna is set to embark on her first headlining U.S. tour starting April 19th. Check out her brand new song and visual above.
