Norwegian Young Singer AURORA’s new song Running with the Wolves was released.

“The song is about having the animal instinct inside you come to life. Running with them, joining them – the instinct taking over, giving you freedom and making you forget about your human self and all things we humans keep around us in the modern society.

I think humans need to let go a bit more, shake their bodies more often, like the animals do.. It’s a beautiful thing really.

Sometimes when you look at the world, and you see what we’ve done to it, the way many of us hurt the world we live in, innocent animals, even our own kind! And that kind of makes you want to follow the wolves instead. At least for one night.”

Aurora Aksnes is a 18 year old girl from Bergen, Norway. She strives to write music that can inspire people, through idiosyncratic tales of struggle, love, and all that lies in between.

Also, Denmark have their own number system between 50 and 90, which is not easy for foreigners to understand. This have caused lot’s of lighthearted jokes between the Scandinavians.

▶ History: 2014 marks Norway’s 200 year anniversary as an independent nation. On the 17th of May 1814, a constitutional convention declared Norway independent from Denmark. And in reality, Norwegians actually spoke closer to Danish during this time period. Today, Norwegian and Danish people
