Acclaimed Nordic Dark Folk artist Sowulo reveals the second single and lyric video ‘Stearcost ealra’, from the upcoming new studio album Wurdiz, set for release on September 9th through By Norse Music.

‘Stearcost Ealra’ is a powerful song about fate and destiny, and how both notions are the strongest of all.

Faber Horbach comments: ‘Do not fight, do not resist your destiny, if you withstand that what already is, you will suffer a lot in your lifetime. Observe how your mind fools you to believe that you have a choice to go against the will of destiny, but that you know the truth deep down in your heart. This ‘knowing’, this inner voice, can be experienced as a feeling realization. Let it guide you, let fate come to pass.’

About the album: “Wurdiz”, the proto-germanic word for destiny, is all about the dance between fate and free will and with these songs, Sowulo’s founder and multi-instrumentalist Faber Horbach intentionally connects to fate and let it incite him to become a weaver of his own destiny.

The album is about fate as the unfolding turning of events and the journey of becoming aware of one’s own threads within the tapestry of life. As the twelve songs unfold, the replicas of historical instruments in combination with modern-day instruments and production techniques confer to “Wurdiz” a powerful and cinematic sound that takes you on a journey within. While the carnyx, lyre, nyckelharpa, Irish bouzouki, Celtic harp, and blow horns create echoes from the distant past; throat singing, spoken incantations and powerful vocals tell the stories on a deep emotional level, accompanied by bombastic percussion and strings.
